1993 Yearbook Photo Predicts Cubs Will Win 2016 World Series

Premature tattoos are one thing, but possibly successfully publicly predicting the Chicago Cubs’ first World Series championship in 108 years 23 years beforehand is a feat not seen.

Check out this amazing senior quote from Michael Lee. The Mission Viejo (Calif.) grad dedicated his love for his Cubbies by noting the following in his 1993 yearbook:

“Chicago Cubs. 2016 World Series Champions. You heard it here first.”


The photo has blown up the interwebs over the past day after Thomas J. Dale posted it on Twitter. He said his mother found it. Go mom.

And if you think this may be a photoshop hoax, au contraire! WGN confirmed it exists. Others who own the yearbook posted pics here.
