An eerily prophetic tweet from 2014 predicting the Chicago Cubs would face the Cleveland Indians in Game 7 of the 2016 World Series and force extra innings has gone viral.

On Nov. 4, 2014, a Tampa Bay Rays fan tweeted specific results of the 2016 World Series, right down to the game into extra innings.

“2016 World Series. Cubs vs Indians And then the world will end with the score tied in game seven in extra innings #apocalypse,” Twitter user @RaysFanGio wrote.

Since the prediction, the tweet has been shared over 150,000 times and liked nearly 125,000 times.

On Wednesday, with Game 7 tied at 6-6, Gio’s tweet began to gain momentum as the game went into extra innings after a brief rain delay with many fearing Gio’s prediction about the impending apocalypse.

Though Gio didn’t predict the World Series winner, one Cubs fan did, back in 1993.

Michael Lee etched forever in time in his Mission Viejo High School yearbook, a bold baseball prediction some 23 years ago.

“Chicago Cubs. 2016 World Series Champions. You heard it here first,” Lee wrote under his senior year photo.

Lee’s prediction surfaced earlier this week after the man’s classmate took to social media to share a picture of the yearbook.

Speaking with Chicago’s WGNTV News, Lee explained why he decided on the yearbook quote.

“I’m like, ‘I don’t know what to put, I’m not a big literature person,’” Lee told the news station. “And then it came to me, I’m like ‘oh I know, I’m gonna put this.’”

Lee explained the quote stemmed from a dream he had when he was a kid. The Chicago native attended high school in California before moving back to his home town.
