The Friendly Confines became the Freaky Confines Monday.Maybe the Cubbies fans were just trying to replicate what Philly did on a more creepier level. To counter the Curse of William Penn, where no Philly team had won a championship since a building in Philadelphia was built taller than the Statue of William Penn, something that was long agreed in the city would not happen, the city of Philadelhpia placed a small figurine on top of the now-tallest building in Philadelphia, the Comcast Building, and low and behold, a year of so later, the Phillies are World Fucking Champions!
A goat’s head was found hanging from the statue of Harry Caray prior to Wrigley Field’s Cubs home opener.
A similar incident occurred in 2007, in what many perceived as a bizarre attempt to lift the notorious Billy Goat curse.
Police said they received a 911 call about the goat around 2:40 a.m. Monday.
The goat’s head was dangling from a rope on one of Caray’s outstretched arms, according to Town Hall District police, who took the head down and disposed of it. It was not known how the goat died, police said.
Now maybe if they allow a billy goat into Wrigley, that will break the curse, but hanging a dead goat's head on Harry Caray's statue at night will only serve to scare anyone who walks by that statue at the time completely shitless. And it also provides us with some good comedy on this blog; I guess you really can't overlook that.
