It’s pretty safe to say that all Chicago Cubs fans are familiar with the Curse of the Billy Goat. It’s just one of the many things people point to as the reason why the Cubs haven’t won a World Series since 1906.
Over the years, Cubs fans have tried to break the curse in multiple ways. They’ve tried leaving a severed goat’s heads outside of Wrigley Field and one fan even tried to take a goat into an Astros-Giants game (the Cubs trailed the Astros in the Central Division by a half game at the time).
So it shouldn’t surprise Cubs fans, or anyone else, that a package containing a goat’s head was dropped off at Wrigley Field on Wednesday. And it was addressed to Cubs owner Tom Ricketts.
A goat’s head was delivered to Wrigley Field this afternoon, addressed to Cubs owner Tom Ricketts, a team spokesman said.
A package with a goat’s head was dropped off at Wrigley, 1060 W. Addison St., addressed to Ricketts, Cubs team spokesman Julian Green said.
The package was dropped off at Gate K at the field, Green said. The delivery was reported to police, he said.
Cubs fan everywhere are hoping this finally works. But of course, they’re not holding their breath.
