Is this real life? Fans of the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians may have been on edge during Game 7 of the World Series on Wednesday, November 2, but one guy knew who’d win — two years ago.
Back in 2014, Twitter user @RaysFanGio predicted the outcome of the big match. “2016 World Series. Cubs vs Indians,” he tweeted on November 4, 2014. “And then the world will end with the score tied in game seven in extra innings #apocalypse.”

The baseball enthusiast was right on. The teams had to go into an extra inning in Game 7. The Cubs eventually took the win with a score of 8-7, finally breaking their losing curse after a 108-year drought.
The tweet went viral during the game and has received more than 120,000 likes and 150,000 retweets. Per CBS, the user, who hasn’t identified himself, swears the tweet is not fake and revealed that he posted it when Cubs manager Joe Maddon joined the team back in November 2014.

He wasn’t the only one to correctly guess the big win, though. In 1993, a man named Michael Lee wrote about the Cubbies in his yearbook senior quote.
“Chicago Cubs. 2016 World Series Champions,” he shared at the time. “You heard it here first.”
Lee’s former classmate Marcos Meza shared the yearbook pic via Twitter in August. “After my Dodgers lost it was time for me to make this go viral and BeLEEve in the Cubs for 2016,” Meza told WGN-TV.
