The Chicago Cubs’ Ben Zobrist was safe at home as Cleveland Indians catcher Roberto Perez put on a late tag during the fourth inning of Game 7 of the World Series.

In case you were unaware of the world of Twitter, please know this: each tweet has a time stamp.

This usually doesn’t mean much, but in some instances it can be very, very interesting. Case in point: there was this tweet from a user named GIO (handle: @RaysFanGio) on Nov. 4, 2014.

Still, you’ve got to give this guy credit. That’s a pretty darn specific tweet.

He tweeted the reason behind the prediction (it had to do with Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon):
