Guess Who’s Coming to Pre-Game Meal?
One of the highlights of the team’s trip to Charleston was a special guest at Sunday’s pre-game meal — legendary actor and comedian Bill Murray. Murray, who resides in Charleston, spoke with the team about his career, his basketball skills and much more. The actor owns the Charleston RiverDogs minor league baseball franchise and also was a basketball player growing up. His son, Luke, is an assistant coach at Wagner College. Many of the players recognized him from movies like Ghostbusters and Space Jam, but by the end of the meal, all were laughing along side Murray who had a joke ready at every opportunity.
Murray is one of a long line of celebrities who have met with the Patriots basketball team and head coach Jim Larranaga, counting among them President Barack Obama, Michael Jordan, and many others.
