'Back To The Future Part II' Was Only A Year Off In Predicting The Cubs' World Series Win

The Chicago Cubs became World Series champions for the first time in 108 years on Wednesday night. The team beat the Cleveland Indians, 8-7, in Game 7 of the series, and naturally fans went wild.
What’s most amazing about the Cubs’ win, though, is not just the general fact that they broke their over-century long streak, but they did it only a year after it was predicted to happen in 1989’s “Back to the Future II.” Great Scott!
Michael J. Fox, who played the film’s main character Marty McFly, pointed out the crazy coincidence on Twitter Thursday morning:
Only off by a year, not bad. Congrats @Cubs. This is so heavy. #FlyTheW — Michael J. Fox (@realmikefox) November 3, 2016
Plenty of others noticed, too:
@realmikefox @Cubs yeah I made this meme last night and thought the same thing! Crazy! pic.twitter.com/3iQgacDCoI — MikeDrastic (@MikeDrastic) November 3, 2016
Back to the Future II was only one year off! Congr
