Watch Eddie Vedder React To The Chicago Cubs’ World Series Win

Last night, as you are most likely aware, the Chicago Cubs won the World Series, ending a 108-year championship drought in a ridiculously tense, exciting, inspiring 10th-inning victory over the Cleveland Indians. Many of us are currently shaking off cobwebs from staying up to watch it happen. Many of us are thinking of grandparents who didn’t live to see it happen. And many of us — Cubs fans and non-fans alike — are still feeling the general, overwhelming sense of disbelief.

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder is one of the Cubs fans. He’s a lifelong fan, and a vocal one. In recent weeks, he’s sung during the Seventh-Inning Stretch at Wrigley Field, and he’s led fellow celebrity Cubs superfan Bill Murray in a drunken house-party singalong. And last night, after the Cubs won, someone at Chicago’s WGN found Vedder out on the field, celebrating, and asked him a few questions. He was about as articulate as you could expect, considering:

Meanwhile, as WGN reports, the Cubs made a new video for “All The Way,” a song that Vedder wrote and recorded for the team’s 2008 playoff run. It’s a video full of images of Chicago fans celebrating, and it might make you a little misty. Here it is:

And speaking of Cubs fans in the music, we should take a moment for Mountain Goats frontman John Darnielle, who recorded the anthemic and permanently rousing “Cubs In Five” in 1995 and who recently wrote a great Slate piece about his experience writing the song. Darnielle was not at the game, but here’s his Twitter reaction:

And even though it’s not a remotely music-based footnote, here’s Vedder’s buddy Bill Murray drunkenly interviewing a similarly drunk Theo Epstein, President of Baseball Operations for the Cubs, in the locker room after the game:
