From my stepdad…

(FYI, I did check this on Snopes.com, and it’s legit…I mean…statistically)

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

The Redskins have proved to be a time-tested election predictor. In the previous 15 elections, if the Skins 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.

The Green Bay Packers beat the Washington Redskins 28-14 today.

  1. I can only hope the Redskins are on track this election!

  2. I can safely say that outside of some games that determined which bowl game trip I got to go on as a college band member, this is the only sports game result I’ve ever been excited by.

    I know it means nothing. But it still makes me happy. 🙂

  3. Oh, if only….

  4. Sigh. I guess their fortune-telling days are over.

    Sigh.

    And sigh again.
