Goat Head Delivered To Wrigley Field, Slated to Bat Clean Up Tomorrow vs. Giants
Some enterprising Chicagoan dropped a goat’s head off at Wrigley Field for Cubs’ owner Tom Ricketts Wednesday afternoon. Apparently killing goats and delivering them to Wrigley Field has become the go-to curse breaker in Chicago, as just back in 2009 a dead goat was found hanging on the statue of Harry Caray. And also in 2007. All of this of course stems from the famous Curse of the Billy Goat. Legend has it that the owner of the Billy Goat Tavern cursed the Cubs to forever lose when he was asked to leave Wrigley Field because his pet goat’s odor was bothering the other fans. Goats have got to be pulling for the Cubs to win a World Series soon so they can get back to eating garbage without looking over their shoulder. Fun fact: As of this writing, Chris Davis of the Baltimore Orioles has 5 less RBIs than the entire Cubs team! So maybe the goats could feed off the level of play in Chicago.
