A tweet sent back in 2014 predicted the exact outcome of Wednesday’s World Series Game 7 minus one important detail — the world didn’t end.

Still, people are completely freaked out by a two-year-old tweet from that correctly predicted the 2016 World Series would be the Chicago Cubs against the Cleveland Indians with the score of Game 7 tied in extra innings. This all came true.

Luckily for civilization, the Cubs won the game 8-7 to capture their first World Series title in 108 years and the world did not end — yet. However, a late-night rain delay with the score tied led to many people thinking the apocalypse was actually coming.

The user, named Gio, wrote the tweet the day the Cubs hired manager Joe Maddon. The scary, cryptic tweet has been retweeted over 152,000 times and liked over 126,000 times.

Check out some of the Twitter reaction:

We’re still alive… for now. Having captivated the entire country and delivered impressive ratings for host network Fox, the Cubs now bring the World Series title home to the Windy City for the first time since 1908.

Their win also finally put to rest that pesky smelly Billy Goat who was ejected from Wrigley Field in 1945, prompting his owner to curse the team. The whole thing is a great success for Chicago and baseball… assuming the apocalypse doesn’t arrive tonight.
