Ferris Bueller's Day Off..2016 World Series-Death of Gordie Howe, 1984 Cubs Season
In my last post I talked about the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off and how it was foreshadowed by a sign after the game.
Anyway I watched the movie last night.
The opening scene it starts off with him faking to be sick. Just want to point out his blanket with Native Americans on it.
The point in the film is basically to get his friend Cameron out of his shell and stand up to his dad. Notice for most of the movie he wears a Gordie Howe Jersey.
It doesn't seem like that big of a deal except for this movie is set in Chicago so seems a little strange he's wearing a Detroit Red Wings Jersey. Also Gordie Howe died on June 10th 2016 age 88.
Curse of the Billy Goat=88
He also died 71 days after his bday.
Cubs haven't won in 71 years.
Detroit is connected to the Curse of the Billy Goat and Curse of Rocky Colavito.
Detroit Red Wings=82, 91
Chicago Illinois=82, 91
Interesting too as I'm noticing this after Game 5 of the World Series. Gordie Howe died the day after Game 5 of the Stanley Cup.
Howe also died on the 162nd day this year.
Major League Baseball=162
162 Regular season games.
He also died 145 days before a potential Game 7.
It's the 145th MLB season, and 145 years since the Great Chicago Fire.
Notice the guy who plays Cameron also born on 7/1 and from Cleveland.
In the movie they also go see a Cubs game at Wrigley. The scene is pretty short but they mention Lee Smith pitching when Ferris catches the foul ball.
He was the pitcher for the Cubs.
He made his MLB debut with the Cubs on 9/1 of 1980.
There's also a lady wearing a 1984 Cubs National League Champions sweater.
Not that big of a deal but interesting when you look that team up.
Notice they show us seat 104 as well...I'm assuming Ferris is in 102 or 106?
10/4 is the day that leaves 88 days in the year.
1984 was the first time Cubs made the post season since the Curse of the Billy Goat as well.
Cubs coach that year was from Cleveland.
Cubs GM was born on 8/4.....The 1984 Cubs...
He was also the first Cubs executive to clash with the City of Chicago over getting lights at Wrigley Field. They got them in 1988.
Curse of the Billy Goat=88
Another interesting thing that could possibly be nothing...but makes me wonder as I keep mentioning the significance of Teen Wolf. When at the parade the movie theater is playing Teen Wolf and Godzilla 85. Obviously these movies came out around the same time, but still interesting as there are a ton of other movies that could've been on that sign.
There was also a 33 address I forgot to take a screenshot of during this parade.
There's a scene where Ferris' dad is reading the newspaper and it says "Baseball, shame, cocaine".
Now isn't that interesting in regards to the Jose Fernandez story. They just let us a know a few days ago how he had Cocaine in his system during his boat wreck.
Of Course what would a movie be without putting a 1 eye symbol in it lol.
At the end of the movie Ferris comes back in and says the movies over and to go home.
Notice how Wikipedia highlights "It's over" also.
