Fact of the Day: Goats and Curses

The Chicago Cubs were well-known for going through a 70+year drought of going to the World Series. Most blamed a "curse" set by a man named Billy Sianis who was kicked out for bringing in his goat. Funny enough when the Cubs won the pennant (which guaranteed them a spot in the World Series) in 2016 it was on the exact same day Sianis had died 46 years prior.

That is interesting. I always go to the Billy Goat Tavern whenever I'm in Chicago, so I knew about the curse.
