Critical Minute: Restore Wrigley vs. Curse of the Billy Goat

Wrigley Field’s famous “Curse of the Billy Goat” started in 1945 when Billy Sianis was escorted out of a game because his pet goat was disturbing other fans. He responded with “Them cubs, they ain’t gonna win no more,” and the cubs haven’t won a National League Pennant, let alone a World Series, since.

Multiple attempts have been made to break the alleged curse, but now, Wrigley Field’s proposed facelift may be the key to a fresh start for the team. Cubs’ ownership has started a public relations campaign called, “Restore Wrigley Field” in the hopes of gaining support for a new clubhouse, media center, video boards, fan concessions and more.

Businesses currently advertising where the proposed new video screens will be placed, have voiced their opinion against the changes, while fans seem to be split on changing their nearly 100 year old ball field. You can check out the proposal at
