I'm going to say probably not but the way our political season is going I'm not going to completely discount it either.

Parks and Recreation may be on to something. They are off by a year though.

Boston won for the first time in 86 years, the following season the White Sox won for the first time in 88 years..and all without any Gotterdammerung.

The world can probably survive a Cub's victory.

And wasn't it the Cubs winning in 2015 for the movie Back to the Future?

Thank you for a thread title that made me laugh more than most in recent memory.

It sounds like they're saying it in the past tense though. Which would mean that they would have won it 2016, I suppose.

So you're saying there's a chance?

It seems the most likely scenario.

The Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians meeting in the 2016 World Series? To some, it could signal the End Times. But the possibility might not seem too far-fetched to many who follow the game.

I think if the Cubs play the Indians in the World Series the chances of the apocalypse are much more certain.

If ..........and I do mean if.............the little North Siders somehow win the Big One, it could be more than an apocalypse. Jupiter will probably align with Pluto, Mars, and Venus.

But this can't be their year. The Dodgers are going to find a way to beat them in the NLCS. Win for Vin!
