Chicago Cubs fans have not won a World Series in a 107 years and will do just about anything to change that, including walking 1,600 miles with a goat to reverse the famous Billy Goat Curse.

Six Cubs fans from all across the country, are walking from the team’s Spring Training home in Mesa, Arizona to the Cubs Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois, all while being accompanied by a 4-month-old Nigerian dwarf goat named Wrigley. With the help of Wrigley, the men hope to end the curse of the Billy Goat casted on the Cubs in 1945. Legend has it, Billy Goat Tavern owner Billy Sianis was asked to leave the Cubs World Series game because his billy goat was bothering other fans. Sianis warned officials, “Them Cubs, they aren’t gonna win no more,” and even sent a telegram to team owners. The Cubs lost the 7-game series and have not been back to the World Series since.

The group, which has named themselves “Crack the Curse,” left for Wrigley Field on legendary Cub Ron Santo’s birthday on February 25 and hope to arrive in Chicago on May 28.

You can follow their voyage in the blog crackthecurse.com, and are asking supporters to donated money to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle
