Esquire interview

24 Oct, 2013

Murray speaks about serving as a color commentator for a Chicago Cubs baseball game:

It was really thrilling. Harry Caray had been ill or something, and he couldn’t do the first half of the season. So they got a guest person to do the game every day. I started watching the games just to see what people were doing. I mean, I watch Cubs games anyway, but I saw that these people were trying to be broadcasters. And I thought, What the hell? That’s not how I would do it. So I made the decision to do it as a fan, calling it like a person would sitting in front of his TV. I was very fortunate.
