If you have attended Colorado State University in recent years, you’ve probably received numerous long-winded emails from President Tony Frank about all sorts of topics, from the grim state of higher education funding to why we can’t have a snow day.
What did they have in common? He usually mentioned the long-suffering Cubs – and in a tweet, this mention may have (sort of) predicted the future (even though he has probably mentioned the possibility of the Cubs winning the World Series every year).
“It is a rare CSU snow day,” he wrote. “Does this mean 2016 will be the year the Cubs win the World Series?”
It is a rare CSU snow day. Does this mean 2016 will be the year the Cubs win the World Series? -tf— Dr. Tony Frank (@CSUTonyFrank) February 2, 2016
Frank’s prediction, which happened in 2016, isn’t quite as eerie as the now-viral quote in a year book from 1993, where some dude named Michael Lee wrote:
“Chicago Cubs. 2016 World Champions. You heard it here first.”

Still, Frank was happy he was right – as Cubs fans everywhere are.
“Cubs win! Fly the “W”.

And a post on CSU’s Facebook page about Frank’s possible ability to predict the future is also doing pretty well for itself.
