camaraderie from whining/self-pity/sorrow from rooting for a loser.
Without Barfman, this may have been lost and the cubs' fans wouldn't know
how to act as they have then entered the abyss.
BTW, the goat curse is not the only curse. The Red Sox have the same
camaraderie from the "curse of the Bambino".
If the Red Sox had met the Cubs in the World Series, the winner would
actually be the LOSER!!!!!!
