If there’s one thing we all know to be true about Bill Murray, it’s that he is constantly showing up in unexpected places. The guy is infamous for random appearances and on Tuesday night, Vancouver was graced with his presence. On November 12, Bill Murray was spotted in the stands at a Vancouver Canucks game. The Bill Murray Canucks appearance has both Canucks fans and Bill Murray fans totally losing it.
When a Canucks marketing intern confirmed that it was, in fact, Bill Murray, she snapped a few photos of him. “He wasn't very cooperative! He just kept holding up his 50/50 tickets. And he was wearing a Blackhawks shirt,” she noted to NHL.com.
Sure enough, the photo of Bill Murray in the stands at Rogers Arena shows him wearing a classic Hudson’s Bay scarf and a newsboy cap while holding up his ticket for the 50/50 draw.
Apparently, the Canucks weren’t aware that Bill Murray was at the game but were probably glad he was there to see them defeat the Predators in a 5-3 win.

Bill Murray was at the game with a friend, Peter Farrelly, who also happens to be quite the celebrity. Farrelly directed and produced There’s Something About Mary, Dumb & Dumber, and tons of other comedic classics.
Naturally, Bill Murray and Peter Farrelly didn't just watch the game and then hit the old dusty road. They made a stop in the Canucks' dressing room first.
NHL.com explains that Bill Murray went around the dressing room talking and taking photos with each of the players. He offered the boys advice about the game, telling them to take it easy with a long season ahead.
Oh, and if you were wondering, Murray did not win the 50/50 draw.
