Five Guys and a Goat March from Phoenix to Wrigley Field
Five men and their sidekick, a goat named Wrigley, are marching their way across the country in hopes of breaking the Cubs curse. The Chicago based baseball team hasn't won the World Series since 1908. It's not entirely clear how this pilgrimage will help the Cubs win the World Series, but the five men are also walking for a good cause; they're raising money in support of cancer research. Don't worry - Wrigley the goat gets to come along in a bike stroller rather than walking the whole way!
Matt Gregory, 32, brought up the idea to the other four guys when they were all working at the same Denali Park camp in Alaska last summer. Gregory already completed two 5,000 mile walks. He said all the guys were Chicago Cubs fans, so they went for it. But to complete their ensemble of a Cubs-curse march, they needed a goat. So they went to Craigslist and found a goat for $60. Appropriately, they named him Wrigley.
