The Chicago Cubs have not been to the World Series in 68 years. Because baseball is known for its superstitions, many Cubs fans blame the drought on the infamous “Curse of the Billy Goat.”
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.”
Over the years the Cubs fans, players and ownership have done everything in their power to “break the curse.”
We’re pretty sure it went down like this…
Except it wasn’t a live goat. It was actually a severed goat head. But we didn’t want to be morbid about it.
