The Curse: The Cubs and the Billy Goat

lynnmLynnm on 12/01/2007

TheCurseTheCubsandtheBillyGoat Photo It all goes back to the billy goat. A fan named Billy Sianis bought a ticket for his goat to attend a World Series game at Wrigley Field with him. Originally the goat was admitted and even paraded around, but Cubs’ owner Philip Wrigley - er - got “wind” that the fans near the goat’s box seat were complaining of the odor, so the goat and its owner were ejected! So Billy Sianis then cursed the Cubs! The Cubs had been leading in the World Series, but lost that game and went on to lose the 1945 World Series as well. Considering what has happened - and hasn't happened - to the Cubs in the 60+ years since The Curse came upon them, that was one powerful Curse. See if you agree!
