This Sports Illustrated Cover From 2014 Is Going Viral

Sports Illustrated may have predicted the future.

Back in 2014, after the Houston Astros finished in last place in their division for three years in a row, Sports Illustrated made a bold prediction on the cover of its June 30 issue. SI predicted that the Astros were building towards a championship - one that would come in 2017.

Well, they're four wins away.

Houston won 101 games this past year, finished first in the AL West and will have a chance to win it all against the Los Angeles Dodgers this week.

Here's the cover, which SI is pretty pumped about.

Game 1 of the 2017 World Series will come Tuesday night at 8:09 PM ET.
