For as deep as the Cubs have gone this postseason, there's been a solid chance of seeing Bill Murray in the stands on a given night. In fact, the sight of the comedy legend, proudly sporting his Cubs blue, has become something of a routine over the past few weeks. It's almost like Groundh -- OK, OK, enough of that.

Anyway, in Tuesday night's Game 6, a must-win situation for the Cubs, who delivered a 9-3 victory to set up a winner-take-all Game 7 tonight, Murray was perched in some choice seats behind home plate.

His vantage point allowed for a great reaction shot when Addison Russell stepped up and crushed a huge grand slam in the third inning, a moment of pure joy seen atop this post. That's a man very clearly stoked about his Cubbies getting one step closer to a potential World Series title.

As for other comedy icons supporting the Cubs, fellow lifelong fan Bob Newhart sent out a post-Game 6 tweet that is just about perfect:

Yes, that's Don Rickles! Imagine the laughs at that table ...
