I have to root for he Skins?

God help me, I have to root for the Redskins to beat the Packers on Halloween:

Claim: The outcome of Washington Redskins football games has correctly predicted the winner of every U.S. presidential election since 1936.

Status: True.

Example: [Collected on the Internet, 2004]

FOOTBALL + ELECTION

Did you know….??

The Washington Redskins have proved to be a time-tested election predictor. In the previous 15 elections, if the Washington Redskins have lost their last home game prior to the election, the incumbent party has lost the White House. When they have won, the incumbent has stayed in power.

This election year, that deciding game takes place on Sunday, October 31 … vs. Green Bay.

Well, it would only be the Skins 2nd win of the season, so my Giants won’t have any competition from them. 🙂

    Really? I had not heard that legend before. Ah well, guess the Skins will be a-winning, then!

    Excuse me, but it would be their 3rd win of the season, and it seems to me, their most important one. 😉

  3. was a little wishful thinking back on the 14th 🙂

    I love Joe Gibbs, he is class. On this Sunday preceding the election, go Skins, Giants, and Cowboys
