Ruby at the World Series!

Ruby stands outside Wrigley Field during the 2016 World Series

So there's a ball game here in Chicago this weekend ...

Ruby takes it all in at the World Series at Wrigley Field

The Cubs are in the World Series for the first time since 1945

The Curse of the Billy Goat: The Chicago Cubs have not been in the World Series since 1945. Many believe that the team was cursed during game four of the 1945 World Series by Billy Goat Tavern owner, Billy Sianis. Sianis was kicked out of game four because his goat was bothering other fans. Outraged, Sianis cursed the Cubs and claimed that they would never play in another World Series again ...and until this year, they haven't.

Have fun, Ruby!

Sherri Telenko said...

According to that story, I think you should fear tavern owners, not goats. So, the cubs are a baseball team, right? Very cute photos.

Interesting about the Billy Goat curse. Our South Carolina Gamecocks had a story of a chicken curse.

Janet Keefe said...

Living in the Northeast, we know what curses are all about, but the Red Sox finally broke theirs! Good luck to your team!

Maybe if a goat could be the cause of a curse, an adorable dog can be what breaks the curse. :) It is really cool that so many ball parks are becoming pet friendly. I hope it was a fun game!

Heartprints Pets said...

Aw, Ruby, that's so awesome that you can go to the World Series!! Go CubS!

Christine Caplan said...

As a Chicago native that spent many summers at Wrigley Field - I am cheering the team ON! When did the stadium become dog friendly? WHAT FUN!!!!!! Boy I missed out on that!

Katie A. said...

It's really cool that you get to go! Have fun :)

Daily Dog Tag said...

I think it is awesome that you got to go! I like that both haven't won in a long time, that will make it sweeter for the winner and the second place team should be proud that they were so close.

Tenacious Little Terrier said...

How neat Ruby! Mr. N has not been to a big sporting event yet. I think he would disapprove of the yelling lol!

Lindsay Pevny said...

This looks like a blast, I love your photos, too!

Kimberly Freeman said...

What a great piece of trivia. Thanks so much

Jana Rade said...

I hope that was a lot of fun for you!

Bobbi and Gracie said...

What fun, Ruby!! And you look marvelous!!

Elizabeth Keene said...

Really? You've been at the games??? SO jealous! I'm pulling for the Cubs, too; just because I love Chicago so much (was there this summer). I had no idea about the goat curse! Hope it's broken (if it was even a thing to begin with)!

Spencer the Goldendoodle said...

BOL, how awesome you are at Wrigley Park! Good luck to the Cubs, we are rutting for them! :)

Jackie Bouchard said...

I'm watching the game right now, Ruby and it sure looks like your team is about to win! (Unless I just jinxed them.......)

Madi and Mom said...
