WRIGLEYVILLE — We all knew this might happen.

Someone brought a goat to Wrigley Field for Game 3 of the World Series.

Millie the Goat made an appearance at the north end of the ballpark thanks to Joe Roetter, who brought her all the way from Grand Haven, Mich.

"She broke the curse," Roetter said confidently as the Cubs and Indians plowed through the fifth inning with no score. "She's the world's luckiest goat."

"That's why we're here. I'm a longtime Cub fan," said Roetter, who says he often spends time watching Cubs games with Millie, "drinking beers in the garage, and she eats the cigarette butts."

Fans have long attributed the Cubs' World Series drought as the product of the Curse of the Billy Goat. Supposedly, Billy Goat Tavern owner William "Billy" Sianis cursed the team when his pet goat was ejected from the stadium. "The Cubs ain't gonna win no more!" Sianis is said to have sworn.

Roetter was last in Chicago to see the Grateful Dead concert last summer, but he said he had to make the trip to bring his "lucky goat" to break the Cubs curse.
