Ruby at the World Series!

So there’s a ball game here in Chicago this weekend …

The Cubs are in the World Series for the first time since 1945

The Curse of the Billy Goat: The Chicago Cubs have not been in the World Series since 1945. Many believe that the team was cursed during game four of the 1945 World Series by Billy Goat Tavern owner, Billy Sianis. Sianis was kicked out of game four because his goat was bothering other fans. Outraged, Sianis cursed the Cubs and claimed that they would never play in another World Series again …and until this year, they haven’t.

    According to that story, I think you should fear tavern owners, not goats. So, the cubs are a baseball team, right? Very cute photos.

    Maybe if a goat could be the cause of a curse, an adorable dog can be what breaks the curse. 🙂 It is really cool that so many ball parks are becoming pet friendly. I hope it was a fun game! -Purrs from your friends at

    As a Chicago native that spent many summers at Wrigley Field – I am cheering the team ON! When did the stadium become dog friendly? WHAT FUN!!!!!! Boy I missed out on that!

    I think it is awesome that you got to go! I like that both haven't won in a long time, that will make it sweeter for the winner and the second place team should be proud that they were so close.

    Really? You've been at the games??? SO jealous! I'm pulling for the Cubs, too; just because I love Chicago so much (was there this summer). I had no idea about the goat curse! Hope it's broken (if it was even a thing to begin with)!
