As fate would have it, the Groundhog Day star, also a diehard Cubs fan, had an extra ticket and invited her to join him in the stands.
“I was excited to go to the game and sit with Bill,” she told Inside Edition. “I’ve been a lifelong Cubs fan and going to Game 6 and [winning] was a dream come true. I hope to go to Game 7.”
She sat in a celebrity circle, was surrounded by the likes of Price Is Right host Drew Carey and Today show weatherman Al Roker.
Michael said that Murray is "just a fantastic guy and an everyday person. You would never think he is this big celebrity."
