As reported elsewhere, the Washington Redskins have successfully predicted the outcome of every presidential election since 1936. In short, if the Redskins win the home game before the election, the incumbent candidate/party wins. If the Redskins lose, the challenging candidate/party wins. The Redskins hosted Greenbay today, and lost due to an extremely unfortunate/fortuitous penalty. So, if history holds, the election belongs to Kerry.
Anyone who's heard me strike down one of their third-hand anecdotes as a dopey urban legend knows that I'm skeptical about these things, but I'm somehow drawn to this particular correlation. It's probably because I like the idea that the outcome of the election is determined by something other than popular will.
As a final note, I'll point out that if the Curse of the Bambino can come crashing down, there's no reason for the Redskins/Election link to hold up. Either way, I'll be eagerly awaiting next year's Supreme Court appointment firestorm.
