Bill Murray wears 'I ain't afraid of no goat' shirt to Cubs game

Friday's National League Division Series at Wrigley Field between the Chicago Cubs and San Francisco Giants featured a cavalcade of celebrities, including Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder and Chicago Bulls guard Dwyane Wade. But no one made more of an impression than actor Bill Murray, who showed up to the park in a fantastic custom T-shirt.

Murray watched southpaw Jon Lester attempt to shut down the Giants while wearing a Cubs shirt with the catchphrase "I Ain't Afraid of no Goat" plastered underneath a picture of a goat being crossed out.

The shirt pays homage to the classic "Ghostbusters" films Murray starred in during the 1980s, as well as "the curse of the Billy Goat," a popular Chicago baseball storyline.

In 1945, Billy Goat Tavern owner Billy Sianis was asked to leave Game 4 of the World Series after the smell of his goat was bothering fans. An angered Sianis is said to have later proclaimed, "Them Cubs, they ain't gonna win no more," which has held true.

The Cubs haven't won a World Series since 1908, and haven't played in one since 1945.
