Redskin rule again called into question

By Mark Pierce

Since the 1940 presidential election, the Washington Redskin’s performance in the last home game before a presidential election has been a clear harbinger for the person about to take or re-take the White House.  Skins win, and the incumbent stays in, lose and the challenger takes office in January.

The only time the rule has not held up since then was the 2004 election, when George Bush re-took the White House, despite the Skins losing the key game at home.

Followers of these sorts of odd political patterns may need to seek a more reliable method of election prediction, as last night the president won the election handily, despite the Redskins most recent loss against the Carolina Panthers.

As the commercial says, it’s only magic if it works. Labels out, everyone!


About ImproperRedskin

I grew up watching the Redskins with my dad. I feel I've always been a part of Redskins Nation. I'm so excited about the direction the team is taking now. I feel somewhat exiled in terms of the skins living in Boston, even though I know there are other fans here. That's pretty much why I started doing this, to touch base with other Redskins fans across the country. There's always something to talk about with the Redskins, isn't there? I want to hear your voice.
