However, Murray and the Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo, David Ross and Dexter Fowler stopped by “Weekend Update” to bask in the glory of another type of win – “Weekend Update’s The Voice” contest – and not that curse-breaking, 108-year drought-ending triumph that happened earlier in the week.
The confusing premise is just a reason allowing Murray and the three ballplayers to lead the crowd in a rendition of the team’s post-victory anthem “Go Cubs Go,” with some slight lyrical adjustments to reflect that the team from the north side of Chicago had finally won a World Series.
The three Cubs even got involved in a sketch with host Benedict Cumberbatch: In the Weekend at Bernie’s-esque “Surprise Bachelorette,” Fowler, Ross and Rizzo played baseball-themed strippers at a raunchy bachelorette party for an 83-year-old woman.
“Don’t worry grandma, Grandpa Rossy will take good care of you,” said Ross, making fun of the 39-year-old retiring catcher’s nickname in the clubhouse.
“It’s your lucky night: We’re about to play a triple-header,” Rizzo said before the dance party kicked off.
