“Cubs win World Series. Beat Miami?”  (Scene from Back to the Future 2)

“Cubs Win! Cubs Win!” (Harry Carey after a rare Cubs win)

Oh… if only Harry Carey’s dream could come true….if you are a Cubs fan. (Which I’m not).

I guess one would have to be born under a rock to not know that October 21, 2015 is the date highlighted in the movie Back to the Future 2. One of the predictions is the Cubs finally win the World Series. ‘Course I don’t know if that will happen. They will have to get past the Mets and then either the Jays or Royals.

There are several other interesting factoids about the movie which people have focused on. Like technology featured here. Or other predictions here. It has been fun for a Back-to-the-futurite like me to see what all has come down the pike. Nike says they have power laces coming. Some companies (Tesla for one) are even touting their “breakthrough into hoverboard technology.”

After spending time with my dad this past week, the future is more of a reality than it had been. Retirement. Social (in)Security. Aging. Dementia. Creaking joints. Bulky knee. (Already lost the hair). 🙂

Truth is nobody knows the future. Spielberg et al came close on some things. But there has only been ONE who has hit it right on the money. And one day in the future He is returning when His Father says, “Now.” And He is not going to need a Delorean.

    Nothing wrong with hoping and wishing. Unfortunately that doesn’t make it true. But keep on hoping and wishing.

    If God wanted to show us his sense of humor, he could arrive in a Delorean.

    Very appropriate post for Back to the Future Day!

    By watching these shows as a kid, I expected to be taking my hover car to work and sending my kids to school in their jet packs by now. Oh, and having the automatic lawn mower mow my lawn while I sit in a lawn chair sipping lemonade. TV really has let me down. The last one hurts the most.

    Looking forward to the One promise that I can count on!

    On the same wave length this week–our group Bible study at church is on 2 Thessalonians 2!

  5. I don’t think the Cubs are going to make it.

  6. Love your fun facts from “Back to the Future,” Bill! What great, entertaining movies those were.
    And yes, only God really knows the future; we should rest content in that knowledge.

    Good one, Bill. Even with all the proof of fulfilled prophecy across history some folks continue to be “willfully ignorant”.
