Cardinals Fans Are "Satan's Messengers on Earth," Bill Murray Says

Bill Murray: Calling it like he sees it.
Bill Murray: Calling it like he sees it.

Bill Murray encountered some Cardinals fans yesterday while playing in a golf tournament in Iowa -- and he did not mince words about the team or its fans.

As the Quad City Times reports, Murray slurred the Redbirds as "Satan's messengers on Earth." And when someone admitted to being a Cards' fan, Murray deadpanned, "No wonder there's something coming off your body like an ectoplasmic phosphor."

Even little kids weren't immune from the scorn heaped by the Cubs-loving actor. More from the Quad City Times:

A few steps away, a boy with a Cardinals hat asked for an autograph. Murray signed, then noticed the red cap. "Are you a Cardinals fan? Get out of here. Rotten kid."

As he walked up the second fairway, Laura Bollaert posed for another selfie with the actor.

"How old are you?" the twice-divorced Murray asked with a gleam in his eye.

"Twenty-seven," Bollaert said.

"Perfect," Murray said. "Are you seeing anybody?"

Typical Cubs fan.
