CHICAGO -- A 1993 California high school yearbook has officially -- accurately -- predicted the outcome of the 2016 Cubs-Indians World Series.

In his senior year picture at Mission Viejo High School, Michael Lee wrote:

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

Lee's former classmate, Marcos Meza, provided WGN-TV with video proof that the yearbook photo and its message are real.

"When [Lee and I] connected on Facebook in 2009 I sent him the photo and told him we were nearing 2016. He posted the photo of his prediction on August 8th," Meza said. "After my Dodgers lost it was time for me to make this go viral and BeLEEve in the Cubs for 2016."

Meza's hopes for the image to go viral definitely went viral. And now that the Cubs clinched the Fall Classic, it's sure to gain even more attention.

WGN-TV has already stated on Facebook that they will be doing a follow-up on this story!
