I was in Chicago two summers ago and this gentleman, who had to be in his 80s, was telling me a tale of why the Cubs are cursed. Involved a billy goat. Then the Cubs went through their fiasco in last year's playoffs and the media focused on the goat tale. In Boston, there is the Babe Ruth "Curseof the Bambino" for selling him to the Yankees in 1920 for $100K (World Series titles since the trade: Yanks 26 Sox 0). Anything is possible.
