Severed goat head delivered to Wrigley Field

By Mark Towesend of Big Leauge Stew (of Yahoo)


We've all heard the story before. During the 1945 World Series, Billy Goat Tavern owner William Sianis placed a curse on the Chicago Cubs  when the team denied his pet goat Murphy entry into the famed Wrigley Field. Since, the Cubs have not appeared in another World Series, let alone won one, so the "Curse of the Billy Goat" is still referenced to this day.
It's ridiculous, I know, but the urban myth lives on and on and on, sometimes thanks to the Cubs themselves.
Sadly, I think too many people buy into the idea of a curse to begin with. And even sadder, I think too many people take the idea way, way too seriously. That has to be the only way to explain what happened at Wrigley Field on Wednesday, when a package containing the severed head of a goat addressed to owner Tom Ricketss was dropped off at the ballpark.
Yes, the severed head of a goat. Your eyes did not deceive you.
