CHICAGO, IL - What would you think if you saw five guys walking down the highway with a goat?! That`s exactly what folks in a handful of states saw.
The group is made up of PJ Fisher, Blake Ferrell, Philip Aldrich, Kyle Townsend, Matt Gregory and Wrigley the Goat! They're hiking from Mesa, Ariz., to Chicago to try to raise $100,000 for cancer research and crack the curse of the goat for the Cubs.
So what exactly is the Curse of the Billy Goat? It all started in 1945 after the Cubs refused to allow the owner of the Billy Goat Tavern, Bill Sianis, to bring his goat inside the game because it smelled. Legend has it, that in a fit of rage, Sianis yelled, "Them Cubs, they aren't gonna win no more!"
Well, a true fan can't run the risk of the Cubs never winning a World Series, so this group set out to break the curse.
