A strangely specific high school prophet may have predicted this year's miracle season for the Chicago Cubs back in 1993.

Tuesday night, the long-cursed Cubbies will play in the World Series for the first time since 1945. It's an event they haven't won since 1908, and their mere appearance in the Fall Classic has shocked longtime fans to tears—exhibit A, of course, is Bill Murray.

Meanwhile, this yearbook photo from 1993 shows that one guy, Michael Lee, apparently isn't surprised at all. His senior quote read:

Chicago Cubs. 2016 World Champions. You heard it here first.

Obviously, you're skeptical. Well, the Chicago media's covering the Cubs World Series like they might the moon landing, and any conspiracy theories are swiftly fact checked.

A video on WGN shows the yearbook in question's cover and the photos inside, where a one Michael Lee appears to call the Cubs' win completely out of nowhere.

And the internet has rejoiced.

But the words of the prophet, incredible as they are, won't be completely proven until the Cubs make good on the prediction by sealing the win.

To ascertain the odds on that prospect, ask a Cubs fan about Steve Bartman.
