Chicago Cubs folklore says the team started losing in 1945 when a die-hard fan’s goat was denied entrance to the ballpark during the world series.
So five guys just walked 1,764 miles with this goat, all the way from Mesa, Arizona, planning to get the goat into a Cubs game and break the curse (and raise money for charity). via The Pantagraph.
The goat’s name is Wrigley.
He was not allowed in the park.
