Bill Murray is the guy. He was hilarious in Stripes, top notch in Space Jam and even better in Caddyshack. But his best highlight might’ve been last night during the seventh inning of Game 3 of the Workd Series. He preformed Take Me Out To The Ballgame in a Daffy Duck voice. Yes you read that right. Here is video proof:
Bill Murray’s character in Caddyshack is absolutely perfect. “Cinderella story, Former greens keeper, about to become Masters Champion” is a classic line as is his speech about the Dalai Lama. But don’t take my word for it.
My favorite part about Bill Murray is the fact that he is just real. He doesn’t have an agent. He just has an 800 number that you call and make your pitch. He is also just a crazy old man.Just last week he was at the White House to accept the Mark Twain Award, and he posed as the White House Press Secretary to let people know the Cubs were going to advance to the World Series.
Another night he showed up at Bar Shangri-La in Austin and decided he was the bartender. There was a catch: he only served tequila. No matter what people ordered, he gave them shots of tequila. Guys the man. (skip ahead to about 45 seconds)
During construction of the Poet’s House Library, ol Bill decided to read poetry to the construction workers. You can’t make this stuff up.
I want to be just like Bill Murray when I grow up. Just messing with people and making people laugh all over the place. I think we could all learn a little something from the way Bill Murray approaches life.
