Michael Lee, once a normal high school graduate in the early ’90s, is being touted as the next Nostradamus. This Gen X-er couldn’t have known that a simple prediction of the Cubs winning the World Series in 2016 would vault him to anonymous and yet specific fame twenty-three years after he donned his cap and gown, but here we are. Now the Cubs are hosting the Cleveland Indians in the World Series, their first trip to the championship in over 70 years, and Michael Lee has the weight of Chicago and a billy goat curse on his shoulders.
Look at him, predicting confidently with his steely gaze. Who are you, Michael Lee?
