    Some Cub Fans take Curse of the Billy Goat too Far

    Some Cub fans hung the dead body of a goat from the Harry Caray statue outside of Wrigley Field. It's pretty disgusting.

    Don't mock the goat!!!!



    That is going far to far. However, you have to (sadistically) admire the effort. Where does one find a goat in Wrigleyville?

    That being said, catch the wacko and lock him up.

    That's disgusting and shameful.

    What a disgusting, gross attempt by local people. Where is Pita when you need them?

    The key is to be nice to the goat, not kill him and hang it upon a legendary Cubs' figure. Hate to say, but I think they're doomed now.

    Maybe if they did not suck so much they could care about the curse, but this team just barely one the worst division in baseball history, and now the fans are getting upset???

    Re: Some Cub Fans take Curse of the Billy Goat too Far

    How do you know it was a CUBS fan that did it? This looks more like the work of a White Sox fan to me. They tend to attract the low character types...remember William Ligue Jr?

    Ligue was actually a Cub fan that came to the Sox game after getting drunk at Wrigley.

    This explains Ken Fuson's remark in his weekly opinion column in the DMR today: "You can't swing a dead goat in the news room without hitting a Cubs fan." LOL

    Re: Some Cub Fans take Curse of the Billy Goat too Far

    I'm surprised Cub fans haven't done this to Bartman yet. And I"m not saying this needs to be done to Bartman. Au contraire, the guy only did what the 10 fans around him did and what the rest of the 35,000+ fans at Wrigley that night would have done, yet because he's the one that touched it and he looks the way he does to this day millions of Cubs fans everywhere are still lining up to hang him. Neither Bartman nor the Goat were the reason why the Cubs blew it in 2003 (??? not a Cubs fan) - the Cubs choked plain and simple. Ridiculous...

    Right now they can kill and skin me so long as the Cubs pull off 3 victories in a row and find a way to win it all.
