Long Wait

This 104 year old guy wants to throw out the first pitch at a Cubs play-off game this year. He's one of the few fans in town who were alive the last time the Cubs won a world series.

The true Cubs fan knows all too well
the facts in this recital:
One hundred years ago they won
their last world series title.

The local lore would have it that
a certain goat's to blame -
a goat who on that fateful day
was banished from the game.

And ever since, the legend goes,
our dear Chicago Cubs
are fated to spoil every year
with sad late season flubs.
