    Talking REDSKINS RULE Predicts Romney Win.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redskins_Rule

    The Redskins Rule is a trend involving National Football League games and United States presidential elections. Briefly stated, there is a high correlation between the outcome of the last Washington Redskins home football game prior to the U.S. Presidential Election and the outcome of the election: when the Redskins win, the incumbent party wins the electoral vote for the White House; when the Redskins lose, the non-incumbent party wins. This coincidence has been noted by many sports and political commentators and has held true in every election since 1940, except for that of 2004.[1][2

    This could be an extremely good thing.

    And people who will see a world
    That I shall never know

    Whenever you think of giving up, just think of all the people who would Love to see you FAIL

    Its origin has been embedded in this nationís consciousness since the Nat Turner revolt; a pathological fear that the oppressed will one day rise up and inflict vengeance upon the oppressor.

    I guarantee if they'd won yesterday then that's all we'd be hearing on television today from the left.

    Ha. Rush Limbaugh was saying that earlier, but instead we get to hear more about Superstorm Sandy because the 'skins lost.

    ...and what about the fools that want to change the name of the Redskins. I say keep the name but change the logo to that of a potato.

    Hell, the Redskins lose practically every weekend. I wouldn't predict they could beat a high school team these days, let alone determine an election.

    Dan Snyder is the Barack Obama of football. Takes a great franchise and turns it into crap.
