Great Scott! That’s an awesome idea for a giveaway. As everyone knows, in Back to the Future Part II Marty McFly travels to the future and finds out that the Cubs won the 2015 World Series. If this prediction comes true, the Volo Auto Museum in Chicago will give away a Back to the Future DeLorean time machine. The vehicle is estimated to be worth $85,000.

Here’s museum director Brian Grams on the DeLorean. “The car is fully functional. It’s a running and driving car. Though we don’t guarantee time travel with the car, its flux capacitor and other board lights light up just like the movie’s car” (ABC News)

You can bet your ass I’m entering this contest. If the Orioles fall short of winning it all, I’ll gladly pull for the Cubbies. I’m all about feel-good stories, and a Cubs championship has the potential to really be heartwarming. Just imagine the Cubs ending their 106 year World Series drought, combined with me ending my 26 year DeLorean time machine drought. Talk about pure bliss. I’m getting teary-eyed just thinking of taking that baby up to 88 miles per hour.
