Sure, President Barack Obama is a well-known White Sox fan.
But that didn’t stop Bill Murray from crashing the White House press room Friday to tout his beloved Chicago Cubs and why they were going to win Saturday.
“I feel very confident that [Dodger] Clayton Kershaw is a great, great pitcher, but we’ve got too many sticks, we’ve got too many sticks” Murray said.
“And at home, with our crowd, the weather — we also, you get a little bit of autumn in Chicago, you don’t get that in Los Angeles. Trees just die in Los Angeles.
“In Illinois, they flourish.”
Murray is in Washington to receive the 2016 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at the Kennedy Center on Sunday.
The Cubs lead the Dodgers 3-2 in the seven-game series. They next play Saturday night at Wrigley Field and will clinch a trip to the World Series if they win.
