Perhaps no word better encapsulates the highs and lows of sports than goat. The word actually has more meanings than you would think not only is a goat a four-legged mammal, but it's also a disgusting move used by the staff of Shenaniganz to prank each other in "Waiting" But neither of these apply to sports. In the athletic world, goat means two things: you are either the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) or a goat (the guy who blew the game or scapegoat). I think both are fascinating, but since I only have 800 words to write something insightful, I'm going to set aside the GOAT for now and focus on goats. Goats have been around for as long as sports have, and as sports continue to climb in popularity, goats become more and more famous.
