Notice the emphasized phrase. And for the record, it is 'Take me out to the ballgame'. Gematria shows us why they "forgot" 'out'.
Scottie Pippen's performance was October 22, 2016, the same day the Cubs ended the 'Curse'.
10/22/2016 = 10+22+20+16 = 68
When I think of Chicago, another '68' comes to mind.
Also, having a former member of the Bulls on 'curse' breaking night makes a lot of sense.
