This is just too bizarre a story.
Today, Sunday, the Chicago Cubs played the Kansas City Royals in an inter-league game, that was a "Throwback Uniform Day." Both teams wore old replica jerseys from when the Cubs' predecessors, the Chicago Whales were in the Federal League, and Kansas City had a team, as well, the Packers.
(As you'll note, that's not a bear cub inside the "C," but a whale...)
But obviously that's the not bizarre part of the story.
The two teams had played each other 100 years ago to the day. Back then, on May 31, 1915, Chicago beat Kansas City 2-1 in an extra inning game that went 11 innings.
Are you ready?
Today, May 31, 2015, Chicago beat Kansas City. 2-1. In an extra inning game -- that went 11 innings.
It turns out that every 100 years, the Chicago Cubs are able to win in an interesting fashion. Maybe that explains things more than the Billy Goat Curse.
