After All the curse stories about the damn goat, it is Time Pearl Jam played Goat to lift the curse Once and for all. Now they have brought a goat or two on field in the past, but they forgot they need one for every year of the curse, so 18 thousand people bringing that goat to Wrigley in song, should be more than enough.

She was an Evil Little Goat...

    for those who do not know, this is actually a real thing I am referring to (if you believe in curses that is)

    Hmmm, not sure how I feel about this. Our Cubs are playing well. Better than well. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Until they win something called a World Series, it is broke. Ask Seattle how the best record ever for a team is with no ring? They are a trivia question, not a champion. Get that goat on the field and let 18 k sing it

    Seattle does not have the best record ever. That belongs to the 1906 Cubs (116-36). They lost the World Series to the White Sox that year, but went on to win the next two against the Tigers.

    Regardless, I don't want anything to do with a damn goat at Wrigley Field. They've already tried bringing goats back into the stadium in '98 (swept by the Braves in Divisional round) and '03 (fuck Alex Gonzalez). There's not such thing as a damn billy goat curse. The only thing that has kept the Cubs from winning the World Series is playing bad baseball at the right time.

    Agreed. Enough with the curses and superstitions. Just play ball and whatever happens on the field happens.

    Tried this a couple of weeks ago and got very little love: http://community.pearljam.com/discussion/257153/evil-little-goat-wrigley-8-20#latest

    That said, I love the idea...even partially or as a bit of a laugh.

    Wait, are you sure that if they play it that it wouldn't prolong the curse?

    I came on here to say "no...I like some 'out there songs, but this one's pretty lame.'" But I was not putting 2 and 2 together on the Curse of the Billy Goat (of which I have heard). Now that I see your explanation; yes! And followed up with "All the Way."

    Goat into all the way, I like that idea way better, make it one song.

    Those prior goat gimmicks were half assed publicity stunts, we need to mean it to remove a curse. Those other cub teams were not nearly as good as this one.

    I was talking about best modern era game record where they play the amount of games we currently do, 162, not winning percentages

    I would rather hear several songs over Goat, don't get me wrong, but playing Goat would be an added fun venue related thing
