Chicago Cubs fans are looking at a 23-year-old yearbook photo as a good omen. The Cubs famously haven't won a World Series since 1908, but in 1993, high school student Michael Lee outrageously predicted 2016 World Series glory for the Cubs in his yearbook picture. At the time of the prediction, Chicago Cubs All-Star shortstop Addison Russell wasn't even born yet! The photo has resurfaced and gone viral after Twitter user Thomas J. Dale posted a photo of the yearbook prediction.
Although faking a yearbook picture is as easy as a few clicks on Photoshop, one Reddit user named number1makeitso backed up the prediction after claiming to have found four other copies of the same yearbook, all featuring Lee's prediction. The user posted them on Imgur as evidence:
