A lot of words could appropriately end that sentence. Actors, comedians, people, all come to the top of my mind. And now, you can add “sports fan” to that list. Well, Chicago Bears fan at least.
FilmDrunk is reporting that at last week’s NFC Championship game at Soldier Field in Chicago, Murray was in attendance and actually pushed a Packers fan when he began to cheer after a big play.
This is what the fan’s friend wrote in to BlackbookMag:
“My friend Matt Katrosar flew to Chicago last weekend to hang out with some of his Windy City pals and attend the Bears/Packers NFL playoff game. He was wearing a Green Bay jersey (in support of old-school Packers legend Ray Nitschke) amid a sea of Chicago blue. During the 2nd quarter, Matt celebrated a considerably good play on the part of Green Bay with the usual hootin’ and hollerin’ reserved for such moments. That’s when he was blatantly shoved from behind. Turning to catch a glimpse of his assailant, he discovered his pusher was none other than Bill Murray, a huge Chicago Bears fan, who was unapologetically enjoying the moment.
Matt’s friend managed to capture a photo of Murray in mid-celebration, laughing at the rival fans. Naturally, Matt wanted a picture with the legendary actor. Murray’s response to his request? ‘Nitschke is a pussy.’”
I’ve always wanted to hangout with Bill Murray, but after finding out he’s this big of an arsehole, I REALLY want to hang out with him.
