The Chicago Cubs lost the 1945 World Series, but is the reason that they haven’t been back because they had a curse set on them? Some people are saying yes! I know it sounds crazy, but in that long of a span of not going to the World Series, we have to start thinking that it can’t just be the team…right? Apparently in the fourth game of the World Series in 1945, Billy Goat Tavern’s owner Billy Sianis brought his goat to the game on Wrigley Field. Due to the goat-y odor of the animal, he was asked to leave. Outraged, he declared “Them Cubs, they ain’t gonna win no more”, and they haven’t since. In this world where curses might exist, how can we cope if the Cubs end up losing…again?
