Bill Murray and the Chicago Cubs on Saturday Night Live

Ever since the Chicago Cubs won the World Series this past week, all around me in the Midwest, people just seem a little more upbeat and happy, even with the wholly depressing election still kicking around for a couple more days. The parade and rally just a hop, skip and a jump away from me over in Chicago brought in an estimated 5 million people, which is almost double the population of the entire city itself, and it now ranks as the 7th largest gathering in human history.

This weekend the celebrations continued, but not just in Wrigleyville. The victory tour spread to New York City as lifelong Chicago Cubs fan Bill Murray decided to take some members of the team back to his old stomping grounds at Saturday Night Live to celebrate the victory on Weekend Update with a familiar ditty that the entire country probably knows at this point.
