Sometimes a radio station’s got to do what a radio station’s got to do.
So it is with iHeartMedia’s WEBG(FM)/Big 95.5 in Chicago and its efforts to help the Chicago Cubs put aside ancient curses and defeat the Pittsburgh Pirates in a one-game playoff.
The BIG Bonfire Curse Reverse 2015 went off without a hitch on Wednesday, much to the delight of a crowd gathered at the Grand Victoria Casino in nearby Elgin, Ill. The inset shows the beginning pyre with larger view showing firemen tossing a pirate ship replica onto the fire.
It must have worked since the Cubbies beat the Pirates 4–0.
