Watching your team crush a national championship is sweet. Seeing ’em do it after an 108-year drought is… Well. We don’t know, ’cause no top-flight Australian team has been cursed with such a long losing record. 

Fortunately for us, Bill Murray knows that feel, ’cause he just watched his beloved Chicago Cubs win baseball’s World Series for the first time since 1908.

Murray – and seemingly a full half of the United States – exploded after watching the Cubs overturn a 3 – 1 series deficit against the Cleveland Indians with their third W in a row.

And then the bloke even wound up on the other end of the microphone – and a champagne shower – while interviewing the team’s boss:

On this blessed day, we are all Bill Murray. Except for Cleveland fans – but they’ve had enough drought-breaking of their own recently, so let’s just give Bill this one.
