Watch Eddie Vedder And Bill Murray Sing “The Weight” At Cubs Afterparty
In last night’s World Series game, the Chicago Cubs defeated the Cleveland Indians, coming back from a 3-1 series deficit and forcing a game 7. For long-suffering Chicago Cubs fans — a number that includes Bill Murray and Eddie Vedder, both of whom have sung during the seventh-inning stretch at Wrigley Field during this World Series — this must be ridiculously exciting, since it puts the Cubs in range to win their first World Series since 1908. After the previous Cubs victory, Both Murray and Vedder took their celebratory moods to a house party in Wrigleyville on Saturday night, where Vedder and Derek Trucks played a drunken-sounding acoustic version of the Band’s “The Weight” while Murray sang along boisterously. Someone posted an amateur video of the singalong on Facebook this morning, and you can watch it below.
Game 7 is tonight in Cleveland, and it’ll air at 8PM on Fox. Whichever team wins, it’s history.
