In general, you never know where actor Bill Murray is going to show up.
But we all know where Murray has been these past few weeks: Cubs playoff games. Murray, who grew up in Illinois, is a lifelong Cubs fan.
So when Karen Michel, a Cubs fan from Indiana, showed up at Progressive Field in Cleveland on Tuesday hoping to buy a ticket to Game 6 of the World Series, she wasn’t surprised to see Murray. Michel had struck out in her attempt to secure a ticket, so she decided to follow Murray, according to Cut 4.

It was a wise decision.
“He turns around and says, ‘Here, here’s a ticket,’ ” Michel told Cut 4. “And he kind of shuttled me into the door. I thought it was just a ticket to get in. But it was a ticket to sit right here.”
“Here” is where it was at. The ticket was a seat next to Murray, just rows behind home plate and near some of the other famous Chicago Cubs fans.
It sounds like Michel had a great time, and not just because the Cubs crushed the Indians and forced a Game 7.
“I asked, ‘When you went to the Cubs game, who did you go with?’ ” Michel told Cut 4. “He said his brother and his father. I have all sisters, and me and my dad would go to the baseball games. We talked about stuff like that.”
