Fact of the Day: Chicago Cubs Curse

During the 1945 World Series, the Chicago Cubs faced the Detroit Tigers. A man named William Sianis took his goat to one of the games of the World Series, but was told to leave after it had bothered a lot of fans watching. When he left he said "The Cubs ain't gonna win no more" and many fans believe he put a curse on the team. As they have never won or gone to the World Series ever since.

And every year my husband still roots for them to win. I just don't think it's gonna happen. Thanks, goat.

But as you reminded me... who knows? This could be the year if we are to believe Back to the Future.
