Redskins Lose Predicting Kerry Victory
A number of historical trends favor Kerry, such as the fact that no President elected after losing the popular vote has been reelected, and no President named George Bush has ever won a second term. Now we have something else on our side as Green Bay beat Washington. Since 1932 this game has been predictive, with the incumbent winning if Washington won their last home game, and the challenger winning if Washington lost.
There was another good omen for us on the football field this weekend. Michigan trailed by 17 points to Michigan State and has only come back to win when down by 17 twice. Michigan tied it up and went on win in triple overtime. The MVP's name was Edwards.
Between the Red Sox victory and the Redskin loss, Kerry would certainly win if only the election was held in a sports arena. Hopefully our ground game will also be enough to clinch a victory on Tuesday.
