Here's Bill Murray cheering for the George Mason basketball team
Things I like: the George Mason Green Machine pep band. Comedian Bill Murray.
Things I like but didn't think I'd ever see: Comedian Bill Murray conducting the George Mason Green Machine pep band.
See, Murray's son Luke is an assistant basketball coach at Wagner. He's friends with many other young coaches in the industry, including Mason assistant and longtime Bog friend Chris Caputo. And Murray himself lives in Charleston, where the Patriots were playing in the Charleston Classic over the weekend.
So he came to a pre-game meal and game as a guest of the program, sat with Jim Larranaga's wife during the festivities, was a halftime guest with Bill Rohland during the radio broadcast, and briefly took over Doc Nix's baton and stood before the pep band. This is the best video of a famous comedian conducting a local basketball school's pep band I've ever seen.
Below, via Mason Athletics, is Murray with Rohland, and Murray with Caputo and Jim Larranaga during the pre-game meal. The George Mason Basketball Blog has more photos.
(Speaking of Murray, this is both timely and awesome.)
