Why the NFL matters

As Gregg Easterbrook noted on Tuesday (and Sports Illustrated confirmed today), the outcome of the Washington–Green Bay game will decide the election. From SI:

Since the Redskins became the Redskins in 1933, the result of the team's final home game before the presidential election has correctly predicted the White House winner. If the Redskins win, the incumbent party wins. If they lose, the incumbent party is ousted.

You can be assured that, even more than usual, I will be rooting for the Packers this Sunday. I encourage you to do the same!

On a side note, I apologize for the short missives that have been flooding my blog. I have a lot that’s due in the next week or two, and I’m reading William Langland‘s Piers Plowman for the first time. I wish I had read it much earlier—I love it and must write more about it.
