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:
