The Back to the Future people were off by 1 year. Michael J. Fox tweeted something like “We were only off by 1 year.”

Here is my FB commentary on the Cubs' impossible Dream Come True. To think they predicted this so near-perfectly in 1989 in Back to the Future 2! (From my FB page) .......... "Ever since my beloved perennial "losers" Chicago Cubs won 103 games to commandingly lead the baseball majors this year and entered the playoffs, I have tried to diligently avoid watching any game, sometimes even trying not to catch up on the news or even play-by-plays- simply for fear I would jinx them (these sort of things have happened before). So here it was- after they had finally tied the series and made it to game 7 last night. As eager as I was to find out the results, I had confined myself to other TV programs (including a most wonderful music program with Haimanti Shukla on Tara TV). Then, around 9:30 pm or so, I caught sight of a news clip which said "Dexter Fowler hits lead-off homer for Cubs in game 7 to make history." Well, then I had to force myself to locate some resource on the net which would give me updates on the game's progress. It was much too exciting. THERE WAS NOT A SINGLE PLACE WHERE THE GAME WAS LIVE. Regardless, I continued looking at inning-wise updates and commentaries, and found that they were up 6-3 after 6 innings. Meanwhile, Wrik wrote to me a FB note saying "Cubs are leading." Well- speaking of jinxes- it was the bottom of the 8th inning- when I went upstairs for a bit, and then, after coming back down, to my great horror- found that Cleveland had tied it up 6-6 in the 8th inning. This was an unfolding horror to me, and even Joyoti (not remotely a follower of any of this) laid the blame upon me for watching the game (or even following it). Down as I felt, convinced this ultimate sports miracle would now fall apart and the Cubs' history of futility run into year 109- I finally turned in for the night around 2 pm, having turned all sources of info off. This morning, though, while I felt that only bad news waited in the news cycles- I caught sight of a note from Trisha (actually from much earlier, a bit after 12 midnight): THEY WON!! Thanks, Tirul! You have no idea how long a wait this has been. For me personally- at least since 1985 or so- from the time I began to follow the Cubs, year in, year out- always utterly frustrating, utterly futile. No matter their roster had the likes of Andre Dawson, Ryne Sandberg, Greg Maddux, Sammy Sosa, Cy Young winners, and on, and on! The greatest futility in the history of sports! THEY HAVE INDEED FINALLY DONE IT!!!"

They also predicted Trumps rise to power. Biff was loosely based off of Trump. Biff becomes a successful business man then goes into politics. Pretty crazy!
Nick Rodriguez (1 year ago)
+xMxH still wasn't anything about Trump fucktard
xMxH (1 year ago)
+Nick Rodriguez Did I say Biff was the president? I said Biff was a wealthy business man who went into politics. I also said they predicted his rise to power not presidency.
Nick Rodriguez (1 year ago)
xMxH that wasn't a prediction. Trump was already a big name in the 80's when this movie was made. biff wasn't even the president. fail
Esmeralda Doll (1 year ago)
they won this year because if they would've won last year the whole world would've been in shock. Who knows maybe movies are a time travel portal
Theshark15z (1 year ago)
Now I wish I can go back to the middle of the season!!!
Mechaghostman2 (1 year ago)
Eh, only a year off. I guess Marty deciding not to react every time he's called a chicken changed events just enough to delay their win.

Or it was the baseball strike in 1994 pushing everything back a year. (there was no 1994 World Series)

+Don't tag my name They reached the National League Championship Series (NLCS) in October 2015 (same month and year as in the movie), but it was exactly one year later they reached and won the World Series. Both for the first time in 71 years. Close enough 😜

Well, you see there was that baseball strike in 1994 so actually the 2016 World Series was the 30th after 1985. not 2015. Remember in the first movie, Doc says he will be able to see who wins the next 30 World Series.

I was gonna say that.

+DJ Scott Agree with you
DJ Scott (1 year ago)
The original script was set in 1986, 1956, 2016 and 1886...but because they finished filming it early, they moved the date back one year so it was apropos for an early release. The fact that the writers predicted a World Series win for the Cubs is impressive enough, without all the other predictive details surrounding this movie series.

glenn sawyer (1 year ago)
They need to make a 4th movie about that it turned out to be a different time line, Marty forgets until the Cubs win a year later and trigers Marty mcfly to realize it didn't turn out the way it was supposed to
BlackStarPower911 (1 year ago)
glenn sawyer OR it would at least be cool to see them do a commercial with Michael J. Fox in 2016 where he's dressed in the same attire and the same background from the movie with a modern megaton TV saying the cubs won the world series.
Historydiggerpat (1 year ago)
Cubs won in 2016😂😂 they were only 1 year off
Ingen Ting (9 months ago)
The month was correct though, and at least they did reach the NLCS for the first time in October 2015 (also a first in 71 years). Close enough :P

Yup 1 years off... too bad Miami Marlins didn't make it. This would had been hella cool.
Chris'sVids79 (1 year ago)
Miami is in the National League like the Cubs. They couldn't play each other in the world series. It would have been cool if Miami was in the American League and they played in the world series though. That would have been a trip lol.

it might be a year off still pretty cool cubs may go world series this year 2016

sounds interesting
sha11235 (1 year ago)
Here's some other things: 1. Miami is a NL team, so they couldn't sweep Miami to win the WS. 2. Since it is only Oct. 21, why would the WS be over so quickly? It usually doesn't end until almost Halloween. 3. I think the idea here was to make fun of the fact that the Cubs had not won a World Series since 1903, so they decided to put this in. 4. And in reality, the team that won the World Series in 2015 is the same team that won in 1985, the KC Royals, so there is a bit of a coincidence there. 5. And I wonder if 2016 will be the Cubs' year? They seem to have a great record and are the first team to clinch a playoff spot.
Knightmessenger (4 months ago)
In 1989, there were only 2 rounds so the World Series ended by mid October. The Cubs previous World Series wins were in 1907 and 1908, not 1903. They did win it a year later in 2016 which was the 30th World Series held after 1985 since 1994 was skipped because of the strike.
hard dorothy (1 year ago)
Re: point 2: Look a https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1984_World_Series the series was over by oct 14th. they just changed when the world series happened. (and also 1983 and prior)

Wow, the movie missed it by just one year... We all know the Cubbies will win the World Series in 2016.

How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
