Few fans of sporting institutions have had to wait 108 years for their team to finally end a seemingly never-ending trophy drought – well, except Hibs fans, that is.
So you can only imagine how Chicago Cubs supporters felt last night when the Baseball giants ended their 108-year wait to win the biggest title in Major League Baseball on Wednesday night, beating the Cleveland Indians 8-7 to claim the World Series.
To add to the drama, it seemed as though the Cubs’ rotten luck would hold out after initially going down 3-1 early in the series.
But the brave Cubs fought back and won their first series since 1908 – much to the sheer delight of Chicago native Bill Murray.
This is what it meant to #Hollywood star Bill Murray.

The Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day star is probably the most famous Cubs fan in the world, and being that famous allows you certain privileges – like celebrating your team’s victory in the locker room with them.
And celebrate he did:

Now THAT is how you celebrate a big victory! Well done, Bill.
Now, time to get planning for next season….
