In 1945 the Chicago Cubs baseball team was trying to end a many years long losing streak and it was game 4 of the playoffs taking place right there in Chicago. Just before that game, which would have clinched it for them, a local bar owner bought a ticket for himself and his pet goat only to discover that the goat, which he had brought for good luck, wasn't allowed. He demanded to talk to the owner, PJ Wrigley, who told him he could come in but the goat could not. Why, asked the owner. because your goat stinks! was the answer. According to legend, the bar owner put a curse on the team , saying they would never win another series as long as he lived. And the curse lasted until 2016, despite all kinds of efforts to break it. This is the story. Voice of Cubs legendary announcer Harry Caray at end.
