Ellen DeGeneres Sends Mysterious Messages to Chicago Cubs Fans Amid Historic World Series

Posted on

Looks like Ellen is pretty excited about this year’s historic World Series!

Comedian Ellen DeGeneres sent out mysterious tweets on Wednesday, inviting Chicago Cubs fans to visit a local Chicago bar to watch the game — and implying that cameras from The Ellen DeGeneres Show might be there, too!

“If you’re in #Chicago & looking for a place to watch the game, Murphy’s Bleachers seems like a good place,” the 58-year-old talk show host. “I might have a camera there, too.”

Later, she told fans “If you wanna have some fun in the rain, you might wanna head to Murphy’s Bleachers right now. Just sayin’.”

Murphy’s Bleachers is located across from Wrigley Field. The sports bar is known to pack in baseball buffs on game day, with an outdoor area that’s perfect for taking in brews while watching the game.

Thank you @theellenshow for coming before the game tonight! #murphysbleachers #upshow

Later in the day, the bar sent out an Instagram pic thanking The Ellen DeGeneres Show for visiting them before the game.

The shot featured two Cubs-branded Chicago deep-dish pizzas — in what looks like prep for the toughest pizza-eating contest ever.

Things have been extra-busy at the bar for the World Series games. According to its Facebook page, lines started forming hours earlier just to enter the establishment.

Wednesday was certainly a great night to be surrounded by Cubs fans watching the second game of the World Series: the Cubs beat the Indians 5–1 in Cleveland, tying up the series after the Indians won Tuesday night.

Game 3 will take place at Wrigley Field on Friday, as the Cubs seek to earn their first World Series victory since 1908.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show airs weekdays on NBC (check local listings).
