The legend of the curse began on October 6, 1945, during Game Four of the 1945 World Series between the Cubs and the Detroit Tigers. Billy Goat Tavern owner Billy Sianis was at the game with his Billy goat named Murphy and even had a ticket for the goat.

Ushers asked him to leave because animals weren’t allowed in Wrigley Field and fans complained about the goat’s odor. Even owner P.K. Wrigley wouldn’t let the goat enter the park. Sianis was so angry that he declared that the Cubs would never win another World Series. “Them Cubs, they ain’t gonna win no more,” is what Sianis supposedly shouted.

Although the Cubs were up 2-1 in the 1945 Series, they would end up losing game four and lost the series in seven games. They haven’t been to the World Series since.

On the 46th anniversary of Billy Sianis' death, the Cubs advanced to the 2016 World Series, beating the Los Angeles Dodgers to win the 2016 National League Championship Series, and positioning them to play the Cleveland Indians in the World Series.

"The curse will continue and the rabid Cleveland Indians fans worldwide will join with us to insure no animal injustices are ever forgotten," commented David R. Zavagno, president of Universal Medical Systems. "The Indians will follow the pathway blazed by our World Champion Cleveland Cavaliers and the Cubs will remain a cursed franchise!"
