A High Schooler Predicted The Cubs To Win The World Series This Year All The Way Back In 1993

The last time the Chicago Cubs won a World Series title, there were only 46 stars on the American Flag and TV nor public radio had been invented yet. The best pitcher on the 1908 Cubs was Mordecai “Three Fingers” Brown and he was paid a whopping $3,500 salary, according to Fox Sports. Two World Wars have been fought and Steve Bartman’s grandfather was just a wad in his father’s ballsack.

The Cubs have a golden opportunity to bring an end to the 108 year drought, especially considering a high schooler named Mike Lee predicted the Cubs to win it all back in 1993, while he was a senior at California’s Mission Viejo High School.

Lee’s former classmate Marcos Meza provided WGN-TV with video proof that the yearbook message and the photo is real, flipping through the dated yearbook to prove it hadn’t been photoshopped or altered online.

“When [Lee and I] connected on Facebook in 2009 I sent him the photo and told him we were nearing 2016. He posted the photo of his prediction on August 8th,” Meza said. “After my Dodgers lost it was time for me to make this go viral and BeLEEve in the Cubs for 2016.”

If the Cubs take home the Commissioner’s Trophy this year, they should give Mike Lee the keys to the city.

YO 2038, The Cleveland Browns will win the Super Bowl. You heard it here first.

Lol. Just kidding.
