Back to the Future predictions come true : CUBS win world series
OK, so maybe you aren’t as stoked as I am about some baseball game, but if you’re a certified nerd, you can’t not feel excited about the prospects of Fantasy becoming Reality, am I right ? I don’t follow Baseball, but my social media feed has been flooded with the news that Chicago Cubs just beat the Cleveland Indians (8 – 7), now what’s so nerdy about it you ask. Well, remember those time travel movies with the scrawny little kid and the mad scientist? YES, the Back to the Future II predicts Cubs winning the world series.
I did some digging and it turns out the Cubs hadn’t won some major silverware in a long time and in the 80’s it was supposed to be a joke in the movie. How it goes is like this, Marty McFly travels with his girlfriend and Doc Brown to the future in 2015 to prevent their kids from ruining their lives and it’s during this visit Marty discover this news and it’s then when the idea of “going back in time and betting on the cubbies” occurs to him
Granted the timing is a bit off, we’re in 2016 and the team they beat isn’t Miami, but hey i’ll take it. Let’s just hope none of the bad predictions from other Sci-Fi movies come true, you know what I mean
By day I’m a boring old Web Developer, but as the sun goes down, I’m a SUPERHERO. Well not really I just dress up and pretend to be one.
“Centurions” was my favorite cartoon growing up and I name all my possessions “Shadow” because I can’t afford a Husky.
I camp in Games like it’s nobody’s business, and if you’ve got a problem with that I’ve got two words for ya “I’m Sorry”, cause you’re a noob.
