Who Needs Polls - Just Watch Football!

No need to stay up into the wee hours watching Tim Russert on Tuesday night, the presidential election should be all wrapped up by tomorrow afternoon! How so, you say? Well, it appears that one of the best predictors of presidential election outcomes, just happens to be my beloved Washington Redskins!

Since 1936, if the Redskins win their last home game before the election, the political party of the incumbent wins the presidency. If they lose, the incumbent's party loses. Don't believe me? Check out Snopes. Is it just a coincidence? Yeah, probably. But still, it's a pretty impressive streak.

At 1:00pm (EST) tomorrow, the Washington Redskins take on the Green Bay Packers. Will a 'Skins win guarantee George W. Bush another four years, or will the Packers put John Kerry in the White House? I don't know, but you can bet I'll be watching!
