Cubs fans, goat, to arrive at Wrigley

The Curse of the Billy Goat began in 1945 after the Cubs refused to allow the owner of the Billy Goat Tavern to bring his goat inside the game. Legend has it the man then told the Cubs they would never win a World Series again. "Hopefully they'll let Wrigley in, but that's up to the Ricketts family and the Cubs organization," said fan Matt Gregory.

Six Chicago Cubs fans who set out to crack the curse by walking cross country with a goat are expected to reach Wrigley Field on Saturday.

In February, the fans started walking from Mesa, Arizona, to Wrigley with a goat.

Besides cracking the curse, the fans also raised money for Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. ESPN reports they've raised more than $11,000.
