The Tribune Company, new owners of the Cubs, finally invited the goat to opening day at Wrigley Field in an attempt to lift the curse, Sam Sianis and his goat finally walked the grass of Wrigley Field.  Sam raised his hat and said, “The curse is lifted.” The Cubs won and won and won their way to their first post season game and division title in almost forty years.  Sam and the goat again walked the field during Game 1 of the playoffs resulting in 2 consecutive home wins, but when they were left behind in Chicago while the cubs got swept in San Diego.  With 8 eights left to get to the World Series, a routine ground ball went through the legs of first baseman, Leon Durham, sealing the fate of the cursed cubs and ending their World Series hopes.
