Chicago Cubs Owner Gets The Worst Fan Mail Ever: A Decapitated Goat Head

The curse dates back to a 1945 World Series game when Billy Goat Tavern owner Billy Sianis was asked to leave a World Series game because his pet goat’s odor was bothering fans. As he left he famously declared “Them Cubs, they ain’t gonna win no more.”
