When the long-suffering Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians, -Major League Baseball's two cursed franchises, made it to the World Series something had to give.

Would it be the Cubs exorcising the ""Curse of the Billy Goat"" to snap a 108-year World Series drought or the Indians putting to rest the far less romantic but no less enduring ""Curse of Rocky Colavito"" to end a 68-year dry spell?

In the end the baseball gods determined the Cubs and their fans had suffered enough.

After enduring decades of misfortune and heartbreak the Cubs finally prevailed, but not without one last gut-churning roller coaster ride that ended with them squeaking by in a nerve-racking decisive seventh game on Wednesday against an Indians team that now own baseball's longest active title drought.

That means the Texas Rangers puma rihanna noir creepers , who joined MLB in 1961 and are still searching for their first World Series crown, move into the on-deck circle of the cursed.

At the moment there is not yet a fully formed Texas hex to hang on the Rangers' drought although the ""Curse of Nolan Ryan"" is gaining traction.

""There's been a lot of burden placed and I think, quite frankly, that it is misplaced puma rihanna noir et dore ,"" Cubs manager Joe Maddon said as his team celebrated. ""If you just want to carry that burden around with you all the time, tonight would never happen.

""The burden has been lifted. It should have never been there in the first place.""

108 years without a championship

The notion of curses hung heavily over this World Series, particularly in Chicago where a hex had clung to the Cubs like the ivy covering the outfield walls at iconic Wrigley Field.

For a storied franchise that had gone 108 years without a championship a curse seemed a reasonable explanation.

The dreaded ""Curse of the Billy Goat"" had haunted the Cubs since 1945 when Billy Goat Tavern owner Billy Sianis was asked to leave Game 4 of the World Series because the odor of his pet goat was offending spectators.

On his way out of Wrigley Field, an outraged Sianis allegedly vowed the Cubs would never again win a World Series.

""There's no more curse now puma rihanna noir et blanc , the goat is history,"" said Cubs fan Rodrigo Gonzales, moments after the game ended.

The ""Curse of the Billy Goat"" has grown into American sporting folklore and a -cottage industry.

Cubs fans taunt the curse with T-shirts stenciled with ""Goatbusters"" and ""I ain't afraid of no Goat"" while the original Billy Goat Tavern, still in operation puma rihanna blanche femme , is a Windy City tourist attraction with nine locations across Chicago and suburbs.

Cleveland's curse is more manufactured than organic, more a product of Indians supporters struggling to find a way to understand their own drought.

They settled on the ""Curse of Rocky -Colavito,"" the Indians' home run champ who was traded to the Detroit Tigers in 1960.

While no hex was placed on the Indians, many of the club's baffled fans believe that was the moment that damned their team to decades of failure.

Haunted Benfica

The Cubs celebration means one of the sporting world's most notorious curses is no more but there are plenty of others around the globe that endure and fascinate.

Portugal's most famous football club Benfica is haunted by the curse of Bela Guttmann. The Hungarian coach led Benfica to their two European Cup wins in 1961 and 1962 but on leaving the club in acrimonious circumstances he declared puma rihanna blanche creepers , ""Not in 100 years from now will Benfica ever be European champion.""

Benfica have gone on to play in eight European club competition finals since then - and lost them all.

In the hugely popular Irish sport of Gaelic football, the county of Mayo has experienced a title drought since 1951 which is said to be caused by the fact that the victorious team of that year passed a funeral on their way home without paying their respects.

According to legend, a curse was placed on the team by either a local priest or a woman, who said that the team would not win another All-Ireland title until every player in the team had themselves passed away.

Two members from that team are still alive and puma rihanna velvet creeper , true to form, Mayo list this year's decider to Dublin - the 10th time they have lost in a final since 1951.

""I love tradition. I think tradition is worth being upheld but curses and superstitions are not,"" said Maddon.

" A cell phone may be an unlikely tool in revealing your spouses infidelity. A cell phone, though , may be able to provide you with enough to prove your spouse is cheating. It can be the key to revealing the affair and allow you to confront your spouse about their actions.

The Bill

A cell phone bill is very detailed. You will usually be able to see what numbers have been called and what numbers have called into the phone. You will also get times of calls, which can be important.

Once you get a hold of the bill you want to note strange numbers or calls at odd hours. You should also compare the numbers to numbers that you know so you are sure to catch anything out of the ordinary.

You should also note if suddenly your spouse is using their cell phone more often. This can be a sign of cheating. If your spouse usually uses the home phone and suddenly uses their cell phone all the time and it is not explained easily then you have something.

A Secret Cell Phone

Sometimes a cheating spouse will get a new cell phone that they do not tell you about. It can be hard to discover this, but many ties they may make a mistake. They may actually give you the number. They might pretend they just got a new cell, but if you never see the bill and they are still using their old.
