A photo shared on Reddit of an alleged 1993 senior yearbook quote by Michael Lee reads: “Chicago Cubs. 2016. World Champions. You heard it here first.” Redditor number1makeitso, who shared the picture, claims it is “verified.”
We have since contacted number1makeitso to inquire about his verification and to gather more information about Michael Lee.
However, some skeptical Redditors believe that Lee just misquoted 1989’s Back to the Future Part II, which prophesied that the “Cubbies” would win the World Series in 2015.
This year, the Cubs are looking to break the Curse of the Billy Goat, which some superstitious fans believe is why they haven’t won the World Series in 108 years.
Tonight, we will learn if Michael Lee is indeed psychic as the Cubs play at Progressive Field, where they will take on the Cleveland Indians. To learn how to watch Game 1, click here.
