Yeah! My Team Lost!4 November, 2008
I have been a Redskins fan since I was born (my dad is from the DC area). I’m happy that the ‘Skins are having a good year. I’m surprised that they are having a good year.
Last night, they lost 23 to 6 to the Steelers. And I’m happy about that. Why?
The Redskin’s last home game before a Presidential election was, as of last night, 17 for 17 in predicting the national (not Electoral College) vote (I’m not close to being a statistician, but what are the odds? (seriously — what are the odds of being right 17 straight times in a random situation?)). If the Redskins win their last home game, the incumbent party wins the national vote. If the ‘Skins lose, the challenging party wins the national vote.
The Redskins lost. Yeah! Let’s make it 18 of 18.
Get out and vote. Help others vote. Vote! (For, of course, Obama/Biden.)
