    A pair of competitive eaters will test the power of their skills Tuesday night as they attempt to reverse the Cubs' "billy goat curse" by eating a whole goat.

    Famed Japanese competitive eater Takeru Kobayashi, who has won Nathan's Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Contest six times, and L.A. Beast, a competitive eater and YouTube star, plan to eat a 40-pound cooked goat in a single sitting at Lincoln Square's Taco In a Bag.

    Kobayashi and L.A. Beast will be joined by Tim Brown and Patrick Bertoletti, the restaurant's co-owners, who have also indulged in competitive eating contests.

    The hope is to reverse the 70-year "billy goat curse" as the North Side team inches closer and closer to making the playoffs this year. 

    The goat-eating challenge begins at 7:30 p.m. at Taco In A Bag, located at 4603 N. Lincoln Ave.
