Goat to G.O.A.T.
For 108 years the Chicago Cubs labored without a championship, and went over 70 without even claiming a pennant because (according to some) of the infamous curse of the billy goat.
In 1945 Sam Giannis and his goat Murphy were kicked out of Wrigley Field, spurring him to curse the team and giving birth to dark North Side lore. For decades superstitious fans believed that the goat prevented the loveable losers from turning around their fortunes, until Theo Epstein brought new hope, dispatched silly fables and won an epic World Series.
When the Cubs blew a big league in Game 7 the Windy City held its collective breath and wondered if they were living through another heartbreaking moment...but an extra-inning win finished one of the most dramatic championships in history and shattered talk of the curse.
Suddenly instead of goats, we labeled the boys in blue as GOAT – Greatest Of All Time!
With 100+ wins and a championship trophy notched by an unbelievably young squad, a dynasty seems in the making, celebrate the evolution from barnyard voodoo to unstoppable force with this fun new shirt!
