Members of the World Series–winning Chicago Cubs will be appearing on Saturday Night Live this weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The episode will be hosted by Benedict Cumberbatch and will feature music by Solange. No word yet on which players will be making an appearance, or when, but our money’s on “the funniest/most eloquent/best looking ones,” and “during Weekend Update,” respectively. As you’ll recall, the baseball squadron in question won the World Series in an exciting Game 7 showdown against the Cleveland Indians after a 108-year period of not winning the title. And the winning was a very fun thing which made Bill Murray very happy. Hold on — does this mean Cubs superfan Bill Murray will also make an appearance at his old stomping grounds this weekend? We sure hope so!
