Theo Epstein is a baseball wizard. All the dude does is end curses. He added a little celebratory meal to ending the Cubs curse.
According to the Chicago Sun Times, Theo ate a goat in the bleachers at Wrigley to celebrate breaking the Cubs 108 year World Series drought.
Theo Epstein and his team have said they didn’t give much thought to that superstitious billy goat curse.
But when the president of Chicago Cubs operations returned from Cleveland with the World Series championship, he made an interesting request. Epstein asked some restaurant friends to deliver something special for lunch: a roasted goat.
“We were on the phone with Jed. He was recapping the game, and in the background, Theo says he wanted roasted goat for lunch,” restaurateur Kevin Boehm said, referring to Jed Hoyer, the Cubs’ executive vice president and general manager. “I said we’d make it happen.”
The fucking legend of Theo Epstein is being written before out eyes. Any chance he attempts to break curses in other sports?
