As I check email and half watch Monday Night Football on ESPN, I heard them say something interesting. The Washington Redskins are playing the Pittsburgh Steelers tonight. It seems the Redskins final home game before an election has "predicted" the outcome of an election in 17 of the last 17 instances.
When the Redskins WIN, the party that won the popular vote in the previous election has won the White House.
When the Redskins LOSE, the Party that LOST the popular vote in the previous election has won the White House.
Plainly, a Redskins win is good for McCain, a Redskins loss is good for Obama.
Hmm... Redskins halfback Clinton Portis is on my fantasy football team this season, but as frivilous and unscientific as this "prediction" business is, I'm going to have to cheer for the Steelers tonight.
Both candidates are also supposed to be on at halftime. Should be an interesting game.
