As a life-long Washington redskins fan, it pains me whenever they lose. But yesterday's loss pains me a little less than usual. As Wikipedia explains, the Redskins Rule predicts a Romney win:
If the Redskins win their last home game before the election, the party that won the previous election wins the next election and that if the Redskins lose, the challenging party's candidate wins. ...
On November 4, 2012, the Redskins lost against the Carolina Panthers. It was the last home game for the Redskins before the 2012 Presidential Election, which will take place on November 6. If the Redskins Rule holds true in the upcoming election, it predicts a loss for incumbent Barack Obama against challenger Mitt Romney.
As a card-carrying member of the anybody-but-Obama club, I'd happily give up a Redskins win if the rule holds true.
