Eddie Vedder Is Basically A Chicago Cub Now
The eternally cursed Chicago Cubs are currently enjoying a fairlytale season, with an extremely likable young team and a fun hashtag (“#wearegood”), along with the loud support of charismatic celebrity Chicagoans like Jake Johnson and CM Punk. And nobody is happier about the Cubs’ year than Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder, a longtime fan who’s spent as much time around the Cubs as possible this year, singing during a seventh-inning stretch and getting his own baseball card. Last night, the Cubs beat the Pittsburgh Pirates in a Wild Card game to get themselves into the playoffs. The game was in Pittsburgh, and as Consequence Of Sound points out, Vedder traveled to the city to watch the game and to party with the team in the locker room. Asked if he’d travel to St. Louis to watch the Cubs take on the Cardinals in the next round of the playoffs, Vedder reportedly said, “I have kids and a job. I’ll be in Chicago!” (“A job,” ha.) Watch a quick Vine of Vedder dorking out in the locker room below.
Right now, Drake is jealous.
