Everybody knows about the Cubs and the goat. Here's Sam Sianis, owner of the Billy Goat Tavern in Chicago, with his billy goat in the tavern in 2003. Sianis' uncle, William Sianis, put the infamous curse on the Cubs Oct. 6, 1945 as they were fighting to win the World Series, after he was forbidden to enter the park with his pet goat. But ... do you know the name of Sianis' goat? It was Murphy.
