When you win the World Series for the first time in 108 years, there is going to be some publicity. For three Cubs players late Saturday night, it was hit and miss. 

The Chicago Tribune's Phil Rosenthal, along with myself and plenty of other Cubs fans stayed up to watch the debut of Anthony Rizzo, David Ross and Dexter Fowler on Saturday Night Live.

The first time they were on TV was during a skit that featured a grandma getting surprise bachelorette party. Granny had a heart attack and no one noticed. They brought on two strippers and that is when the Cubs players came on.

Since it was their 1,000 performance, they had a special treat. A dance by the World Series Champions Chicago Cubs. The players came out in cut off jerseys with no shirt underneath, hats and what most ladies loved, the shorts that they wear underneath their baseball pants.


Later in the show, the men got to show off their singing skills during the "Weekend Update" sketch. Just when you thought you would not hear from a die hard Cubbie fan again, you guessed wrong.

It makes since that Bill Murray would make an appearance. The man who was part of many seasons of the show was the biggest celebrity support of the Cubs.

All in all, it was a funny night. The Cubs players did a good job and it looks like they are having the time of their life.
