Thousands of REALTORS® stayed up last night in Orlando to watch the Cubs win their first World Series since 1908. As exciting as it was, one other fact may be even more exciting:
If you live in Chicago you know the Billy Goat Tavern resides in the basement of the National Association of REALTORS® building, but you may not know about “the curse of the Billy Goat.”
In 1945, the owner of the Billy Goat Tavern was asked to leave Wrigley Field with his smelly goat! As he was leaving he belted out the words, “Them Cubs, they ain’t gonna win no more”… a curse that has haunted them ever since.
Well, into the wee hours of November 3, 2016, that curse was lifted! However, the decades old relationship between REALTORS® and The Billy Goat Tavern remains! You can learn more about the curse here.
