       October 12, 2004

    You hear a lot about "presidential predictors" as a proxy for determining who will will an upcoming election - i.e. "if the stock market closes on an uptick, the sitting president wins, etc." One such predictor that we've talked about in the past involves the Washington Redskins.

    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.

    As luck would have it, my Green Bay Packers are scheduled to play the Redskins on October 31. About a month ago, Kris and I struggled with mixed feelings on the game; on the one hand, we wanted the Packers to win, on the other hand, we wanted to see W win 4 more years. Could we have both, we wondered? Could this be the year that the streak is broken?

    I'm happy to report that no such confusion remains. After seeing the Green Bay Packers lose to the Tennessee Titans, on MNF, at Lambert Lambeau Field, by a record terrible score of 48-27, I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't win another game this season.

    So rest assured - A Redskins victory is nothing short of certain, and, accordingly, GWB is guaranteed another 4 years in the White House.

    Don't ever accuse a Packer Fan of never taking one for the team.

    Perhaps President Bush can find a nice post in his 2nd administration in, let's say, East Timor, for Coach and GM Mike Sherman. Grrrr.
