Cubs Fan Bill Murray Crashes White House Press Briefing Room

Bill Murray plays the role of press secretary in full Cubs gear because he's Bill Murray.

The Chicago Cubs advanced to the World Series for the first time since 1945 Saturday night, after knocking off the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series.

Perhaps it was just a presidential address from Bill Murray that the Cubs needed to get in position to take a run at the franchise’s first World Series title since 1908. The legendary actor took to the podium Friday to unveil his predictions for Game 6.

“You get a little bit of autumn in Chicago, you don’t get that in Los Angeles,” Murray said. “Trees just die in Los Angeles. You know, in Illinois they flourish.”

If Bill Murray considers fall in Chicago an advantage then who are we to argue?
