Vote!

Standard

Today is election day. But according to my uncle the cheesehead, the race has already been decided. Since 1936, the outcome of the Washington Redskins most recent home game has accurately predicted the next president — if the Redskins win, the incumbent wins. Snopes.com confirms this. On Sunday, the Green Bay Packers beat the Redskins by a score of 28-14 at Washington. If you buy into the correlation, this means that George W. Bush will lose today.
I’m just glad I didn’t hear about this before the game, or I would have had to consider cheering for the Packers. Blech.
Of course, this is the year in which the Red Sox beat the Yankees and won the World Series. And I wasn’t even sitting in the lucky chair when they did, so clearly this is a year in which curses don’t mean anything. Thus, I’m not going rest easy until the votes are tallied. (You did vote, didn’t you?)
