The curse of the Goat is definitely done. “We were on the phone with Jed. He was recapping the game, and in the background, Theo says he wanted roasted goat for lunch,” restaurateur Kevin Boehm said, referring to Jed Hoyer, the Cubs’ executive vice president and general manager. “I said we’d make it happen.” Boehm is co-owner of Boka Restaurant Group with Rob Katz. They enlisted chef Stephanie Izard to prepare the goat. It’s a specialty at her Girl & the Goat restaurant, which is part of the Boka group. “They’ve said there are no curses, that it was just a matter of putting together a great baseball team,” Boehm says. “But they were happy to eat that goat.” Glad we cut put that curse to rest.-TO
