    There’s a long tradition of brining a goat to the stadium, for opening days and playoff games, in hopes of shaking the baseball demons. But Robert Poe, manger of butcher/meat shop Carnivore Oak Park, thinks that more extraordinary—and savory—means than we’ve seen in the past might be necessary.

    “They’ve been brining a live goat, and it hasn’t worked. So we decided to kill the fucking goat,” Poe told Chicagoist.

    Carnivore is processing the sacrificial animal into traditional Merguez sausage, a North African dish. Poe and associates will share the links outside Wrigley, at 7 p.m. on Friday, and lead a “ceremonial dance” to help eradicate the jinx, because why not? You'll know them by their dress: "We'll be in our butchers’ uniforms and bloody aprons."

    Everyone seems to be pretty smug about the Cubs rotation.

    The Cubs and Giants previously met in the playoffs in 1989. The Cubs boasted a trio of 16-game winners: Maddux, Sutcliffe and Bielecki. They lost 4 games to 1.

    No bad PR could come of some wholesome pre-playoff animal sacrifice

    Tomorrow will be a Cubs-themed free jeans day to celebrate the Cubs first post season game, so feel free to wear your Cubs gear in addition to your jeans.

    Credit to the younger folks moving up the ladder here, there's talk of making all Fridays free jeans day... with a charity jeans day on Thursdays.

    Why brine an animal if you're not going to kill and eat it?

    It's cruel to force a live animal to sit in a cold salt bath like that.

    I'll just throw this here; I wonder why the playoff hats (so far) have the New Era logo on the side.

    We still have a paid jeans day, complete with a voluntary auto deduct from your pay check

    :fuckallthat:

    I just pay whenever I feel like it. Once every few weeks. Paid jeans days are so dumb.

    Yes but I am sure you have seen enough baseball to know that there is not a New Era logo on the back of a professional baseball players hat.

    That's why in 1989 Jake Taylor had the bullpen guys run out and grab a bucket of KFC for Pedro Cerrano.

    Only time I wear a cap is when I golf. I only have a Sox 2005 WS champs hat. And my #28 Davey Allison hat autographed by Bobby Allison. And maybe a #4 kodak film cap.
