'Parks And Rec' Predicted The Cubs World Series Win


You can officially add Mike Schur, showrunner of "Parks and Recreation," to the growing list of people who predicted the 2016 World Series correctly.

In an interview with The Washington Post last week, executive producer and show creator Mike Schur said the line was a very intentional prediction.

He said,

But just let us "Parks" fans embrace our inner Andys and marvel over your wizardry, for a day, OK?
