    The outcome of Washington Redskins football games has correctly predicted the winner of every U.S. presidential election since 1936. In the previous 15 elections, if the Washington Redskins have lost their last home game prior to the election, the incumbent party has lost the White House. When they have won, the incumbent has stayed in power. This year it is Packers vs. Redskins at noon on Oct. 31.

    Go Pack!!

    On a related note, every time the Red Sox or Cardinals have won the World Series in an election year, the Democratic candidate has won the White House. We're guaranteed to have one of those two teams win this year, obviously.

    What does this mean? Not a damn thing, of course. :)

    It means the Redskins have no chance of winning against the Packers this weekend.

    Honestly though this could be the moment that both the Red Skins and Red Sox coincidence streak is broken.
