As the baseball playoff season continues to heat up, diehard fans of the Chicago Cubs are crossing their fingers in hopes of the team’s first World Series win in over 100 years. Two of the team’s biggest fans were in attendance last night, none other than Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder and Chicago native Bill Murray.Both celebrities are well-known Cubs fans, with Vedder routinely appearing at Wrigley Field during the season. He’s thrown out first pitches, sang the National Anthem, and even performed at the iconic MLB stadium with Pearl Jam last summer. Meanwhile, Murray is a local Chicagoan (here he is at the Grateful Dead’s Fare Thee Well shows) and big Cubs fan, so it’s no surprise to see him dressed in garb for the game.Still, it’s pretty cool to see these two iconic Cubs fans coming together to support their team. Unfortunately, the Cubs wound up losing to the Dodgers 1-0 last night, but Murray and Vedder didn’t know that when they posed for this great photo.
