Bill Murray was just walking into Game 6 of the World Series in his full Cubby gear. Just minding his own beeswax. In the same parking lot was Karen Michel. A diehard cubs fan that came all the way to Cleveland without a ticket, with the hopes she could score one last minute. Their paths collide..
According to MLB.com, “She soon noticed actor Bill Murray walking by, and, her interest piqued, she started to follow him. What she wasn’t expecting was for Murray to turn around and hand her his extra World Series ticket.”
“He turns around and says, ‘Here, here’s a ticket,”” she told the site. “And he kind of shuttled me into the door.”
Murray and Michel sat in premium seats, a few rows behind home plate and in the company of Eddie Vedder. Michel says she and Murray talked about being Cubs fans.
