Not a Bill Murray fan? Maybe you will be now.

Maryellen Wible is affectionately known as grandma. Last year about this time, her husband of 73 years passed away, and she was feeling a little lonely this month as her 94th birthday approached. She loves basketball and Baylor University, so her grandson Noah, 24, decided to take her to watch Baylor play Xavier College. Little did Grandma know she have front row seats to see Baylor win. But the best was yet to come.

                                                                                                                              Noah Wible
Movie star Bill Murray's son is an assistant coach for Xavier College, and Bill came to the game. He was surrounded by fans asking for selfies, and then his team lost. That's when Noah Wible approached and asked for a photo with his grandma for her 94th birthday. Murray responded, "I think we should sing 'Happy Birthday,' don't you?" He came over to meet grandma, and when he started singing, about 100 basketball fans join in the chorus. Days later, like any good grandma, Maryellen called her grandson to ask for Bill Murray's address. "I really want to send him a thank-you note for what he did for me," she explained.
