(Newser) – The Chicago Cubs need to beat the Cleveland Indians both Tuesday and Wednesday nights if they want to win the World Series for the first time since 1908—and there are a number of celebrities hoping they do just that. CBS rounds up celebrities who have been spotted rooting for the Cubs at Wrigley Field this season, as well as a couple other notable fans:

  • Bill Murray: The avid Cubs fan, who also did a White House press briefing focused on the team, has been spotted at Wrigley numerous times—and once he was wearing a shirt stating, "I ain't afraid of no goat," a reference to a goat-related curse that is said to plague the Cubs.

  • Dwayne Wayde and Jimmy Butler: They're sort of required to support the Cubs, since they play for another Chicago team—the Bulls.
  • Blackhawks captains Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook, and Jonathan Toews: CBS even has video of these Chicago sports VIPs singing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the 7th inning stretch.
  • Vince Vaughn: The actor was last spotted at Wrigley for an August game.
