Cubs mania hit Saturday Night Live this weekend, as superfan Bill Murray made a surprise appearance on the sketch comedy show alongside a trio of Chicago Cubs to sing the team’s victory anthem “Go Cubs Go.”

Murray, first baseman Anthony Rizzo, outfielder Dexter Fowler, and catcher David Ross played themselves during the closing moments of Weekend Update to perform the 1984 track.

Dressed in matching Cubs sweaters and straw boater hats, the foursome looked the part of a barbershop quartet, and each man belted out his song lyric with Murray leading the charge.

Murray was a fixture during the Cubs’ World Series run, appearing frequently at Wrigley Field. He was also on hand last week in Cleveland when the Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians in a thrilling Game 7, which gave the franchise its first World Series title since 1908.

 

In addition to the Weekend Update segment, the Cubs players also appeared together as themselves to play male strippers during a Weekend at Bernie’s-inspired sketch.

The original late-night comedy sketch show from the one and only Lorne Micheals.
