100 years later...and the goat curse continues
It's been 100 years now since the Cubs won a World Series. What a long time to wait. Sure, we were bummed that the Yankees aren't going to make the Show either, but we have memories of three straight World Series rings - 1998, 1999, 2000.
We overheard a guy in an Irish pub act astounded that the Cubs were down two games to none to the Dodgers. Where has he been living for the past century?
So Steve Bartman still has the curse on his back.
And the Billy Goat curse continues onward as well.
We are so happy for Joe. What a manager. To take LA Blue to the playoffs in just one season. What were the Yankees thinking when they let this classic Hall of Famer go?
Finally, what was Lou Piniella thinking that he could beat Joe and Manny?
"The last two games were probably the worst two games we've played all year." Cubbie timing, yet again.
