CHICAGO – Who doesn’t love the ‘Back To The Future’ trilogy? Well, as much as you may love it, you probably don’t love it as much as Chicago Cubs fans, better yet the Chicago Cubs themselves. The 1989 film ‘Back to The Futue 2′ predicted that the Chicago Cubs would finally win the World Series in 2015 (If you didn’t know, we are in 2015). And just yesterday, The Cubs beat The Pittsburg Pirates 4-0 In a wild-card match, which marks their first postseason victory since 2003. Coincidence? OR NOT?
The Chicago Cubs have not won a World Series since 1908, over 100 years ago. It is the longest championship drought of any North American professional sports team. I think it’s safe to say that no living human being can remember the Cubs’ last victory. It’s no surprise that Cubs fans loved Back to The Future 2, as it gave them a small glimpse of what that fateful day would be like. Could 2015 finally be the year?
Have the Cubs intentionally been losing for the past 26 years, just so they can finally fullfill Back to The Future’s prediction? Speculations arose after Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon reportedly told reporters: “2015 has finally come. We can finally try and win”. Whatever it meant, it sure seemed rather fishy. Is this just another marketing strategy for Back to The Future, happened to strike a deal with the Cubs? Have the Cubs been good all along? Whatever it is, we still want the Cubs to win, and we wish them good luck. We also heard Steve Bartman was secretly planning a 2015 comeback, hopefully he is actually arrested this time.
