‘Parks And Recreation’ Amazingly Predicted That The Cubs Would Win The World Series In 2016

by 1 year ago


Back to the Future: Part II came oh so close, but their prediction about the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series was off by just one measly year.

Parks and Recreation, however, they somehow managed to get it absolutely right.

In the final season of Parks and Recreation in 2015 Tom and Andy took a trip to Chicago in 2017 and met up with Lucy. As they were walking through the city Lucy informs the guys that “obviously everyone’s in a really great mood now because of the Cubs winning the series.”

This was something brought to everyone’s attention Wednesday night when the show’s creator Mike Schur posted this tweet…

And it wasn’t just a happy coincidence either. Schur, a big baseball fan told the Washington Post, “As soon as we decided to throw the last season of Parks and Rec into the future, into 2017, we sort of started calculating what the world might be like … I was the only person on the staff who cared about baseball enough to track the Cubs’ minor league system.”

Even with the bold prediction coming true and thrilling the hearts of millions, Schur still remained humble, “I can’t emphasize enough how little credit I feel like I should take for that prediction.”

Whatever! Right Cubs fans?

Here’s the scene that made it all happen (kind of).
