Kobayashi -- Tries to Reverse Curse ... Cubs Bars Run for Cover

Exclusive Details

Listen up Cubs fans, the Curse of the dreaded Billy Goat's about to end, courtesy of some famed competitive eaters -- including the legendary Kobayashi -- and a 40 lb. spit roasted goat.

Pro eaters Tim Brown and L.A. Beast tell TMZ Sports they came up with a genius plot while boozing in Chi town Monday night ... "We said, 'lets eat a f**king goat! We can reverse the curse!!'"

So, L.A. and Tim called Kobayashi and "Deep Dish" Bertoletti to tag team the goat. Their only problem was ... WHERE to do the deed? Naturally, they wanted a spot as close to Wrigley, but Brown says, "This morning we called bars around Wrigleyville, but no one would have us."

After 70-years under the curse, superstition runs deep ... so Brown kinda gets it. "If we don't finish the goat, they don't wanna be associated with re-cursing the Cubs."

The guys are still going for it.  They'll begin chowing down at 7:30 PM local time at "Deep Dish" and Tim's restaurant called Taco in a Bag. It's not near Wrigley, but it could work.

Then again, the Cubs are already a virtual lock for the playoffs (as a wild card team). One might say, why rock the boat?
