On October 6, 1945, Billy SIanis (Chicago cubs fan) bought two tickets worth $7.20. One of the tickets was for him; the other one was for his goat. Sianis and his goat watched the game from their seats until the seventh inning. It was then that security personnel told Sianis that he and his goat had to leave, due to complaints about the goat's objectionable odor.
Sianis, according to believers of the curse, was enraged that such action was taken against him and his goat, and he then cursed the team. The exact nature of the curse differs in various accounts of the incident. Some state that Sianis declared that no World Series games would ever again be played at Wrigley Field, while others believe that his ban was on the Cubs appearing in the World Series, making no mention of a specific venue. Sianis's family maintains that he sent a telegram to Philip K. Wrigley(cubs owner), which read, "You are going to lose this World Series and you are never going to win another World Series again. You are never going to win a World Series again because you insulted my goat."
Believe it or not,Chicago Cubs never won a world series after this curse(till now).And they win a match every time a sianis family member is present with a goat.Isn't this funny?? :D
