AUGUSTA,Ga (WJBF) A reason to celebrate, the Cubs finally winning the World Series.
“It means the drought the lovable loser is finally over,” said Brandon Greene, Assistant General Manager of the Augusta Green Jackets.
“Go Cubs I guess,”he said.
Many thought a Cubs victory parade would never happen because of the “Billy goat curse” that hexed the team for 71 years, after a goat got kicked out of the ball park.
The GreenJackets have avoided a goat curse at their ball park but why tempt fate.
“I don’t think you want to see a goat walking around a baseball park that doesn’t mean something good,” said Greene.
That’s not what they’re saying in South Augusta where some city goats are at work in this storm pond , here they’re not calling the “Goat Busters.”
“Because look at them they’re cute to me,” said Kastarra Lawrence.
“So you like them you have a lot of fondness for them.”
“Yes,” she said.
You wouldn’t want them to go.”
There may be praise for these goats but the GreenJackets may pass on putting them on the field.
“I don’t believe in curses too much I don’t think I’d ever want to see a goat around here,” said Greene.
“You think your goats would be a cursed at all?
“No these aren’t,” said Lawrence.
No curse at all they’re good goats good goats great goats never hurt nobody,” said Lawrence.
The GreenJackets are now looking at the future a new stadium is where the team will “go at.”
A modern ball park for the team to goat, I mean go at. oh boy.
“I guess that’s right,” said Greene.
“I never thought it that way but not yet,” he said.
They can always bring these Augusta goats along for good luck
