#FlyTheW: Stars Who Are Long-Suffering Cubs Fans (Photos)

Bill Murray

A favorite subject of the cameras at Wrigley Field, Bill Murray can often be seen frowning in concentration at various Cubs games. Most recently seen: gamely pounding back beer for the cameras in Game 1 of the NLCS series against the Dodgers.

Eddie Vedder

The Pearl Jam frontman is such a die-hard Cubbies fan, he even wrote a song (“All the Way”) for them, and announced Pearl Jam would no longer be touring in October, just in case the Cubs made it to the postseason.

John Cusack

The Chicago native has been a lifelong Cubs fan and a fixture at Wrigley Field for about as long, and when asked tough questions about his team, knows all the answers.

Hillary Clinton

From wearing Cubs gear to attending games to teaming up with players for charity, the Chicago native and maybe first female President of the United States is a well-documented fan, who even got her own personalized jersey for her 50th birthday.

Billy Corgan

The Smashing Pumpkins lead singer and Chicago native is such a dedicated Cubs fan that he has criticized fellow rocker Eddie Vedder for not being a good fan.

Nick Offerman

“.@Cubs I love you,” the “Parks and Rec” star tweeted last week. “#FlyTheW” The official team account replied back “And we love you.”

Jake Johnson

The “New Girl” star has live-tweeted Cubs games, saying during the NLDS series-clinching game against the Giants, “I honestly thought I was having a mild heart attack in the bottom of the 9th. I’m not sure I can survive this October.”

Gary Sinise

The “CSI: New York” star is a Chicago native so naturally a longtime Cubs fan. He, like many of his fellow famous fans, has partaken in leading the crowd in singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the 7th inning stretch.

The Chicago Cubs are tied 1-1 in the Best of 7 National League Championship Series against the LA Dodgers. If they win, they would break a curse and go to the World Series for the first time since a smelly goat was denied entry to Wrigley Field in 1945.
