World Series - Chicago Cubs v Cleveland Indians - Game SevenJoy has been a rare commodity in 2016, but it found Bill Murray -- and all Cubs fans -- last night. The Chicago Cubs won their first World Series since 1908, in a Game 7 win against the Cleveland Indians. Cubs superfan Bill Murray has become the celebrity face of the team, and his reaction to the win was passed around the Internet like a happiness talisman:
Murray and actor John Cusack, both born in Evanston, IL, and were left in tears as their beloved team finally won:

Murray even got sprayed in the face with champagne as part of the celebration: "I knew I was going to cry, I didn't think it was because I was blind," the actor joked (via the Chicago Tribune).

"This is it," Murray said. "This was a long time coming. This is really great." Did he ever imagine the Cubs would win? "Hell, yes," he answered. "You kidding? I've been imagining this for a long time. I didn't think it would happen in Cleveland but I thought it would happen. I thought we'd have it in Wrigley Field. Just being in Wrigley Field and seeing all that excitement this week and the last few weeks is dreamy. It's really pretty cool."

Here's more of Bill Murray celebrating:
Congrats to all Cubs fans, and condolences to Cleveland. Maybe next year.
