A goat’s head addressed to Cubs owner Tom Ricketts was dropped off at Wrigley Field Wednesday afternoon.
Yes, you read that headline correctly.
According to a story in the Chicago Tribune, a goat’s head addressed to Cubs owner Tom Ricketts was dropped off at Wrigley Field Wednesday afternoon.
The package, described by Chicago police as “intimidating,” was left at gate K, located on the ballpark’s northwest side, across from a fire station.
The goat has been a part of Cubs lore since 1945. That was the year the owner of the Billy Goat Tavern, William Sianis, attempted to bring his goat into the ballpark during the World Series. Upon being denied entry, Sianis is said to have put a curse on the team, assuring they would never win the World Series.
The Cubs have not returned to the World Series since losing to the Tigers in seven games. Draw your own conclusions.
