Bill Murray on College GameDay

Unread post by WVAPPeer » Sat Sep 19, 2020 11:02 am

GREAT PUB - Murray picks APP and says something to this affect - One of the best times I have ever had was at Appalachian State and I have never been to Marshall so I'm picking APP - If I ever go back to Appalachian I may never leave ---

that was cool! Kind of hoped he was on the set so he could body slam Corso again, but I guess with social distancing body slams are not allowed.

McAffe’s segment he picked Marshall with the 5.5 points and bragged and Marshall’s qb.

Bear said he didn’t have a good feel on that pick.

Noticed they talked to Satterfield briefly as well.

Do we give him a pass on mispronouncing Appalachian? Love Bill Murray though.

I also believe he called us the Apples, and I do not care.

Long live Bill Murray.

No one will ever believe you if you get him to show up at the game.


This is my very generic signature added to each post.

Bill Murray lives here in Charleston. It’s not unusual for him to show up at a high school football game, bowling alley or on a local golf course. He seems like a down to earth guy. He’s also part owner of the local minor league baseball team.

There's a little bbq joint in a community near Myrtle Beach called Socastee...take out only, a couple of picnic tables in front, right on the highway. An old shack kind of place. Here's a pic..

A lady I knew wrote an article about it for some golfing magazine that Bill read. I believe he had a nephew that was in some event, sporting contest or something in Myrtle, and he drove up from Charleston for it.

So he decides to try it out. I saw the pics and was amazed that right there at the picnic table on Socastee Boulevard in front of this joint sat Bill Murray, with the whole world driving by unknowingly.

And Bill was Bill, posing for pictures. Did he care if someone driving by noticed, got on social media and suddenly surrounded him? Nope. He and his family just sat and ate, and left for his nephews event.

He's the coolest guy that ever walked this earth.

I remember him from 78. The best SNL crew in my opinion .Melanie was a Hickory girl as I recall. Murray’s joke about Son of SAM during the homecoming concert was classic.

During the concert Murray recognized Berkowitz in the crowd and tried to get him onstage....
