You could score a DeLorean if the Cubs win the World Series

Written by

In 1989, Back to the Future Part II made some ambitious predictions about what the year 2015 would look like, and a lot of them turned out to be true. There are wireless video games, tablet computers and even a functioning hoverboard. The film's most absurd prophecy might have been a 2015 World Series title for the Chicago Cubs. 

The Volo Auto Museum is putting its money where Marty McFly's mouth is by giving away a DeLorean to one lucky drawing winner if the North Siders can clinch their first championship since 1908. Vegas pegs the Cubs' odds of winning a championship this year at 15 to 1, which seems slightly high for a team that finished the 2014 season with a 73-89 record.

The car in question can be seen in front of Harry Caray's in River North. If the Cubs end up ending their 107-year title drought this year, someone will actually have to drive around in that thing—the novelty will probably wear off after about five minutes.
