This, I am assuming, pertains to the Chicago Cubs' "Curse of the Billy Goat". Short story is back in the 1940's a man was kicked out of Wrigley Field for bringing a goat. They haven't won a championship since.....

the ad works, but only in Chicago.

yeah, makes a lot of sense when you're in chicago. I've seen people on michigan avenue actually stop to take pictures of themselves next to the (bus shelter) ads. localized executions do seem to get more attention.

here's the detailed story on the curse. it's massive in chi-town.

If you know the story or not this ad can stand on its own. Perhaps the best among the lot.
