  • For Love or Country

       May 08, 2004

    From the LA Times:

    A 72-year streak links the victory or defeat of the Washington Redskins on the eve of election day with the presidential race. If the Redskins go down to defeat or tie, the sitting president's party loses the White House.

    So, who do the Redskins play just before the election? You guessed it: my beloved Green Bay Packers.

    "Like President Bush, the Packers have a record of being strong on defense," Bush campaign regional secretary Merrill Hughes Smith told the Green Bay Press-Gazette. "Thank goodness Joe Gibbs is back!"

    The Redskins' performance has aligned with the presidential outcome in the last 18 elections — a probability of 1 in 263.5 million, according to Dave Dolan, an assistant professor of statistics at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.

    I love the Packers, but I love my country more. I guess I'd trade four more years for one Packers loss. But, the Vikings better lose that day too.

    Remember that game in the previous election: the Harvard/Yale game? No matter who won, Bush would have been favored: he went to both Alma Maters.

    I don't think it will be the same this year.

    But just in case, I'm rooting Redskins.

    BTW: who do the vikings play?
