This year’s World Series has been a pretty big one for Cubs fans. It probably has something to do with the fact that their team is in it for the first time since 1945. But for one fan, things got even better. How much better? How about "Bill Murray giving you a free ticket and hanging out with you all night" better?

Ok. Yeah, that’s pretty good.

Adding to his list of weird affectations, which includes just showing up at karaoke parties and kickball games, Mr. Murray got one lucky Cubs fan into Game 6, last night, and he even offered her nachos and stuff. It's like he's in a competing against himself to be the world's best person, and he's destroying the competition. 

Karen Michel, the diehard Cubs fan without a ticket, tells her story to People:

“I thought some people holding tickets might not show up or something, I figured I’d give it a shot but I wasn’t expecting much. It was crazy, Bill walked right by me, grabbed me and gave me a ticket! I said, ‘Where are we going?’ and he said, ‘You can come sit with me!’”

It’s all just so heartwarming, isn't? The two sat behind home plate together, watched the Cubs win, and got better seats than Al Roker. Al. Roker. It doesn’t get better than that, does it?

Michel says that the two "hit it off" and might even go to the opening of Mascot Hall of Fame in Whiting, Indiana, next year. If the pair shows up at the Mascot Hall of Fame in Whiting, Indiana, you can bet, we’ll cover it.

A high school baseball coach promised his team that if they won 14 games in a row, they could name his baby. They were not doing well this season so he must have thought it was a long shot. Well, they did it and they want to name him Benjamin Smalls, after two characters from The Sandlot.  

This video was made just before they won that 14th game: 

It seems like mom still has some veto power but they'll be pretty disappointed if she chooses something else now. In fact, apparently David Evans, the writer of The Sandlot dropped by to wish them well.
