Why, oh why? Despite an eighth-inning rally, the Mariners lost Sunday's game and the weekend series, 2-1, to the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs, who have not won a National League pennant since 1945, can blame the Curse of the Billy Goat, after the team barred a bar owner's goat from the stadium that year because of its odor.

A similar but less-familiar curse hobbles Seattle. A grizzled M's fan, still angered by the trade of shortstop Omar Vizquel in 1993, cursed the team when the Mariner Moose spilled his beer.
