and now the steelers - is dp happy?

Forget prediction markets. The best predictor of 17 of the last 18 presidential elections has been the team which wins the last home game of the Washington Redskins before the election. A win by the visiting team foretells a change in the party holding the presidency.

The only time in the past 75 years where the football game failed to predict correctly was in 2004. John Kerry failing to win Ohio ruined a perfectly good streak.

Last night the Pittsburgh Steelers stomped the home team Redskins 23-6. Obama wins.

I hope Mr. Paladin enjoyed the game.

hahaha. The Skins actually winning a game would have been as miraculous as the Republicans keeping the White House. :)
