ESPN Toasts Cubs World Series Win With New Sportscenter Ad
If you're A) from Cleveland or B) Mark Sanchez, look away
Bill Murray, as it was nauseatingly impossible not to find out in the past few weeks, is a pretty big Chicago Cubs fan. Accordingly, we don’t expect him to make many jokes today after what was surely a big night of celebrating.
Apparently ESPN’s SportsCenter is the next man up.
Following Chicago’s historic win in extra innings over the Cleveland Indians in Game 7 of the World Series, the four-letter network’s flagship unveiled a funny ad citing the victory.
It’s not quite 108-years-in-the-making hysterical, but it’s pretty good.

As is the case with T-shirts that are made before championships are decided, the Cleveland version of the spot will be shipped to a Third World country, where it can be put to good use.
