Bill Murray Pushes Green Bay Fan at Playoff Game, Calls Ray Nitschke a Pussy

By Cayte Grieve

A Bill Murray tale, as defined by the always-credible Urban Dictionary, is when “you create an outlandish (yet plausible) story that involves you witnessing Bill Murray doing something totally unusual; often followed by him walking up you and whispering, ‘No one will ever believe you’ and walking away.” It’s an old story, but since then, far too many real-life examples have cropped upstripclubs, karaoke bars — for the myth to be purely chimerical. Murray’s latest prank at the Chicago/Green Bay playoff game comes with photo evidence.

“That picture is of him laughing in my face”—Matt Katrosar

My friend Matt Katrosar flew to Chicago last weekend to hang out with some of his Windy City pals and attend the Bears/Packers NFL playoff game. He was wearing a Green Bay jersey (in support of old-school Packers legend Ray Nitschke) amid a sea of Chicago blue. During the 2nd quarter, Matt celebrated a considerably good play on the part of Green Bay with the usual hootin’ and hollerin’ reserved for such moments. That’s when he was blatantly shoved from behind. Turning to catch a glimpse of his assailant, he discovered his pusher was none other than Bill Murray, a huge Chicago Bears fan, who was unapologetically enjoying the moment.

Matt’s friend managed to capture a photo of Murray in mid-celebration, laughing at the rival fans. Naturally, Matt wanted a picture with the legendary actor. Murray’s response to his request? “Nitschke is a pussy.” So much for “No one will ever believe you.”
