The Most Important Football Game ... Ever
This Sunday's Redskins-Packers game may well be the most important football game ever. According to the Urban Legends Reference Page, the outcome of the last Washington Redskins home game before the election has correctly predicted the winner of every
U.S. presidential election since 1936. In fact, every time since they became the Redskins this has been true (before 1936 they were the Boston Braves). If they win, the incumbent stays in power; if they lose, so does the incumbent. On Halloween Sunday, my Green Bay Packers are playing the Washington Redskins in Washington, DC, that is, at home. Every democrat should join me in rooting for Green Bay. Go Pack!
