Lee had hoped that the prediction might come true last year when they almost fulfilled a prediction made in 1989’s “Back To The Future II.”
“When it didn’t happen,” he said, “I thought maybe they’ll do it next year.”
Lee tried to put the prediction out of his mind during the games, but had a good feeling during the rain delay during Game 7.
“Going into the 10th inning, I thought this might be good for the Cubs since they were deeper,” he said.
Once the 108-year drought was ended, Lee said his phone practically broke because so many people were calling to congratulate him.
“I’ve never texted so many people at once,” he laughed. “My brothers, Dad and I were happy.”
Lee couldn’t have predicted the media interest in him after his Cubs prediction came true. He’s skeptical that people can predict the future to begin with.
“I think this is really a very extreme coincidence,” he said. “Does it blow my mind? A little.”
Although Lee could rest on his laurels, and possibly never buy another beer in his life thanks to grateful Cubs fans, he’s trying to use his newfound fame for good.
