Well you might be wondering, what does the Chicago Cubs baseball team, the World Series, the Billy Goat Tavern and The Fäwkinnae Sportsman’s Club have to do with each other. Well I’m glad you asked. First of all it’s World Series time and the Cubs are in it (first time since 1945). Interesting thing about 1945, that’s the year the Curse of the Billy Goat was laid on the Cubs when the Cub’s owner, P.K.Wrigley, ejected Billy Sianis and his goat from game four of the 1945 World Series. After being ejected Sianis declared, “The Cubs ain’t gonna win no more.” FÄW-KINN-AE and so it was... until this year.
Billy Sianis owned The World Famous Billy Goat Tavern and had come to the game with his pet goat Murphy hoping to bring his team good luck. Because the odor of the goat was bothering other fans Sianis was asked to leave. That’s when Billy freaked out and cursed his team. The Cubs ended up losing the 1945 World Series to the Detroit Tigers and have mostly sucked ever since.
Many have tried to end the curse but some believe a visit from the World Famous Fäwkinnae Sportsman’s Club might have made a difference. After all The Fawkinnae Softball team just finished their fall season with a record of 150 wins and no losses (and imagine in only 5 weeks). Time will tell—in the meantime good luck Cubs.
If your team sucks—now you’ll know who to call!
If you have a good Fawkinnae story I would love to hear it.
