Lifelong Cubs fan Karen Michel got the surprise of a lifetime at Tuesday’s World Series game when actor Bill Murray handed her a Game 6 ticket for the seat next to him – and she says they “really hit it off.”
The 54-year-old, from Whiting, Indiana, says the actor noticed her walking away from the box office before the game, heartbroken, after she was unable to score a last-minute ticket.
“Bill walked right by me, grabbed me and gave me a ticket! I said, ‘Where are we going?’ and he said, ‘You can come sit with me!’”
Murray escorted Michel to their seats — six rows behind home plate — and the two shared nachos while gabbing about Cubs players and cheering their team on.
