On the night that saw the Cubs win their first World Series in 108 years, a cryptic tweet from 2014 surfaced online that seemingly predicted the whole thing. Well, almost.
As the 10-inning classic unfolded, users on Twitter began posting a tweet from another user, @RaysFanGio, that laid out how the entire thing would unfold. The tweet wouldn’t have created an uproar, except it was written in 2014. The time stamp on the post confirms the date.
It read, “2016 Series: Cubs vs. Indians. And then the world will end with the score tied in Game 7 in extra innings. #apocalypse.”
2016 World Series.
Cubs vs Indians
And then the world will end with the score tied in game seven in extra innings #apocalypse

It’s scarily accurate. Cubs and Indians, 2016 World Series, extra innings. Pretty remarkable.
The one area the tweet fell short was in its prediction of the game ending in a tie due to the apocalypse. The Cubs won the game and the Series, so no tie.
But, to be fair, Chicago isn’t done partying yet, so the apocalypse could still be at hand.
