Last night, the Chicago Cubs won the 2016 World Series in the 10th inning of Game 7, ending a 108-year drought. Though many Cubs fans are overjoyed about their team finally wining a championship, there’s one fan in particular that seems especially thrilled: actor Bill Murray, a man seemingly emblematic of the Cubs fanbase. Watch his enthusiastic reaction to the Cubs clinching the game below.

He later celebrated the victory in the Cubs locker room by interviewing center fielder Dexter Fowler, who hit a solo home run in the first inning of the game. He then goes on to interview President of the Cubs Theo Epstein who ends up spraying him in the face with champagne before giving this heartfelt quote: “I just wanna thank everyone who’s ever put on a Cubs uniform, everyone who’s ever rooted for the Cubs. It’s been 108 years of love, support and patience, waiting for a team like this to make it happen on a night like this. You guys are all world champs tonight. I couldn’t be happier for ya.” Watch the video below.

Murray recently accepted the John F. Kennedy Center’s Mark Twain Prize for American Humor on October 23, just one day after the Cubs beat the Los Angeles Dodgers to clinch the pennant.
