Longtime Chicago Cubs fan Billy Corgan doesn’t like to mix with those other celebrity Cubs fans who only show up when the team is doing well.
Speaking with The Chicago Tribune over the weekend, Corgan shared how he really felt about celebrity “fans” who appear during playoff games or, like recently, during the World Series.
“I don’t talk to other Cubs celebrities,” Corgan said. “In fact, I’m anti-Cubs celebrity. Although I know a few Cubs celebrities, other Cubs celebrities tend to show up when the playoffs are around. I don’t necessarily see them in June. I might be a little biased being a Chicagoan year-round.”
Unlike other celebrity Cubs fans, like John Cusack and Amy Schumer, who have been spotted at recent games, Corgan was born and raised and still resides in Chicago. That definitely stands to increase his city pride.
Corgan went on to say how surreal it was to see the Cubs in the World Series, but beyond winning any kind of title he’s simply excited to watch them play. “I just love the way the team plays. I think that’s part of what the vibe is, not just the chance we have to win a World Series but we’re looking at a team that is going to be great for years to come.”
