See . .this is a rarity for me. I’m rooting for the Skins today against my beloved Pack. There are somethings that trump a Packer win – – and that is the my President winning re-election. Call me superstitious, fine.
As the record shows – if the Washington Redskins win their game on the week before elections, the incumbant has won re-election. If they lose, the challenger wins the office.
Along the same line – there is another theory that the record shows if the Green Bay Packers lose their game on the week before election, the incumbant wins re-election, likewise, if they win, the challenger wins.
This week – – the week before the elections — my Pack is playing the Washington Redskins. Which means, I have a choice to root for my Pack, or root for my President – – if I were a superstitious girl. Just to be on the safe side, I’m rooting for my President.
Currently – the Pack is winning 17 – 7 at the end of the half. Washington really needs to pick this game up!
Go ahead, make fun of me. Laugh at me. Chris has been doing it all day! 😀
Update: – Packers won the game 28 – 14 on a penalty that had the Skins victorious. The penalty cost the Skins the game when the Pack intercepted and then ran it down for a touchdown. That was a bad call on the illegal procedure, however – – so it’s my opinion that the Skins were disenfranchised!!
Good for my Packers .. guess we’ll have to wait and see if the football lore has any truth to it.
Of course, it’s been said that Boston broke the curse with their win last week in Busch stadium.
