Vince Vaughn had a message for the Cubs: No excuses. Play like a champion.
Vaughn relayed a variation of Rule No. 76 from "Wedding Crashers" to the Chicago media behind home plate at Wrigley Field ahead of the second World Series game on the north side of Chicago in 71 years.
A lifelong Cubs fan, Vaughn was excited when his team won the National League pennant, but he still demands more.
"I'm not content," he said ahead of Game 4 Saturday evening. "I was glad that we moved on [to the World Series]. I expected us to and I expect us to win this. This is fun."
Vaughn will sing - "If you can call it that," he joked - the Seventh Inning Stretch at Wrigley Saturday night, taking in the historic scene at the corner of Clark and Addison.
Vaughn has been following the Cubs' magical season from afar and hopes his team will have a better showing against Indians ace Corey Kluber the second time around after getting shut out in Game 1.
"We got so many memories and now here we are," he said. "I'm just focused on tonight and win or lose, we're gonna have some fun. Second time seeing [Kluber].
"I love this team. This is my childhood team. ... Tonight's great. We can even the series here. I'm just excited. It's so fun to be here.
"These kids have been terrific. [Cubs manager Joe] Maddon, they've all been stepping up. It's been terrific watching them."
The 46-year-old actor grew up in Buffalo Grove and Lake Forest and has fond memories of skipping school to watch the Cubs play.
"It's just a different atmosphere tonight, but it's the same Wrigley Field," he said. "Unbelievable. Great night."
Vaughn admitted he didn't really know what to expect or envision as the World Series hits Wrigley Field for the first time in a lifetime.
"It feels really good," he said. "There's a little bit of pageantry, but you got the ivy on the wall and there's a few more billboards than we used to have, but it feels exciting tonight."
