Chicago Cubs owner Tom Ricketts sent package containg a goat’s head

MLB: Cincinnati Reds at Chicago Cubs

Sometimes fans are overzealous. Their appreciation for the game, a team or player extends into obsession and causes them to do some unstable things. Today’s example, an owner of a Major League Baseball franchise was sent a goat’s head.

On Wednesday, a package addressed to Cubs owner Tom Ricketts arrived at Wrigley Field containing a goat’s head. The goat head could possibly be a reference to an alleged curse placed on the team during the 1945 World Series.

Restaurant owner Billy Sianis brought his goat to a game, but was asked to leave and he vowed the team would never win again.

The Cubs lost that series and have never been back. They last won a championship in 1908, the longest drought in professional sports.

I mean what is this, a new age version of “The Godfather?” People are weird.

The Cubs are currently trying to convince the city and their neighbors about upgrades and renovations to Wrigley Field.
