Some think local goat is turning Cubs' luck around

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - It's the curse that has haunted the Chicago Cubs for 70 years.

In 1945 Billy-Goat Tavern owner Billy Sianis was asked to leave the World Series game at Wrigley Field because his pet goat’s smell was upsetting the fans. He was so angry, that he “cursed” the Cubs, saying "Them Cubs, they ain’t gonna win no more".

But when University of Illinois student Evan Marinis purchased his pet goat Littleton this spring, things started to change for the Cubs. And now, some fans are pointing at Littleton for the team's success.

Marinis and Littleton joined us LIVE on Good Day Chicago to talk about the Cubs run in the playoffs.
