If Cubs Win World Series, Someone Wins A Delorean

The title of this post's source starts with "You won't believe", and since today is April 1, I wouldn't blame anyone for taking those words literally.  According to WQAD, a museum in Illinois will give away a famous movie prop if a prediction made in that particular movie becomes true.
It hasn’t happened since 1980, but if this is the year for the Cubs to win the World Series one lucky museum visitor will win their own time machine! In the 1989 movie Back to the Future Part II, Marty McFly, played by Michael J. Fox, traveled to the year 2015. Seen flashing on a billboard: “Cubs Win the World Series.”
This year the Volo Auto Museum in Lake County, Illinois decided to put their 1981 Delorean time machine on the line. If the Cubs win, their Delorean movie prop will go to one lucky winner. Brian Grams, director of the museum tells WLS-TV “We’ll take entries through the end of the baseball season – either until the Cubs are out or until they win.” The Delorean has been on display at the museum since the 1990s.
The first line appears to contain a misprint.  The Cubs did not win the World Series in 1980; the Phillies did.  The Cubs last won the World Series in 1908.  I have a feeling that the typo might be corrected at some point.  To learn more, read the full story.
