curse-of-the-billy-goatThis is a Cubs fan alert about BREAKING THE CURSE!! Only a couple days left!!

The Chicago Cubs are still alive after game 5 ( Indians 3, Cubs 2) of the 2016 World series to force game 6 on Tuesday night. If the Cubs win Tuesday night they may be able to clinch the World Series with a final game and break their horrific losing streak  since the 1945 World Series,

And break The Curse of the Billy Goat!!!!

The Curse goes thus:
One William S Sianis,  proud owner of The Billy Goat Tavern showed up at Wrigley Field with his his pet goat Murphy two tickets in hand, one for himself, one for Murphy, at Game 4 of the 1945 World Series.

Though both were both admitted, Mr Sianis was soon asked to remove his goat Murphy from the stands due to a strong billy goat odor.

Upon which, the angry and indignant Mr. Sianis said:

1.”They ain’t gonna win no more”

2. Or sent a telegram to team owner Philip K. Wrigley which read “you are going to lose this World Series and you are never going to win another World Series again. You are not going to win a World Series again because you insulted my goat.”

Sure enough, the curse was on. . .  the Cubs lost that 1945 World Series to the Detroit Tigers . . .and have not won a world series championship since.

How to undo the Curse of the Billy Goat?


There have been lame and misdirected attempts to break it by such obviously wrong-headed schemes as having a competitive goat eating contest!  CRINGE!!

That one seems designed to cement the curse instead of break it.

Phil posited a simple and elegant solution:

Invite a goat to be a guest in every Cubs Big Whig Skybox!

This would surely assuage the sensibilities of goats and goat lovers alike.

This is not rocket science people.  

Please forward to all Cubs fans and Big Whigs as well as Dignitaries and Powers that Be.

The time is nigh . . . or all with be naught!

You may be wondering what this has to do with art and my art blog.  I promise it does. But it’s a secret for now.

Happy Halloween!  Later gater.  😉

I love you guys. <3
