This day in baseball: The curse of the billy goat is born

On October 6, 1945, William Sianis attended Game 4 of the World Series with his pet goat in an attempt to promote his bar, the Billy Goat Tavern.  However, when ushers insisted that the goat must leave Wrigley Field, Sianis placed a curse on the Chicago Cubs to prevent them from ever winning the World Series again.
