Bill Murray stole the show after the Chicago Cubs won the World Series Wednesday night for the first time in 108 years.

When the Cubs finished off a three-game winning streak in the series to win it all, Murray had a facial expression of disbelief, as if all the great moments from the series flashed back at once – moments like when he sang “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” and when he gave a lucky Cubs fan a ticket to sit next to him in Game 6 of the series, The Washington Post noted.

Following the victory, Murray, who’s been a lifelong fan of the Cubs as a Chicago native, graced the team’s locker room as if was a journalist ready to conduct interviews.

“A huge weight has been lifted…The great thing about it is, we became such great losers. Good sports. Good losers. I just hope we’re good winners. I hope we’re good winners. I hope we’re just as good sports as winners as we were as when we didn’t win,” Murray said before taking a sip of champagne. He then asked the reporter, “Do you recycle? Recycle that for me, will ya?”

Anthony Rizzo, who took a 5-Hour Energy drink from Murray before Game 4, stopped in the middle of a post-game interview to acknowledge Murray, The Post noted.

“You’re the inspiration,” Rizzo shouted across the locker room as he came to hug Murray.

Murray, perhaps, hinted at wanting a championship ring, as he jokingly said “I don’t want a ring. I don’t want a ring. I don’t want a ring.”

The famous actor sat behind home plate Wednesday night as he cheered on his team along with other celebrities like Lebron James, John Cusack and Charlie Sheen who were also in attendance, The Daily Mail noted.

Murray told CSN Chicago that he “never panicked” despite how things looked in the beginning of the series.

“Of course I thought it was going to happen,” he said about Chicago’s championship.

When asked about the celebration back in Chicago and what that scene was probably like, Murray said “I can see it in my mind’s eye. At a time like this, it gets very emotional and you forget there are curbs.”

The Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians 8-7 after 10 innings, becoming the first team to trail 3-1 in a series and win since it was last done by the 1985 Royals, ABC News noted.
