Redskins and the Presidential Race

MSNBC -Election to be Decided by the Packers-Skins Game?
Apparently, there is a trend going on with the Washington Redskins. If they win their last home game before the presidential election, the incumbent party stays in power. If they lose, so does the party. It’s a streak over 17 games, and six decades.
So…if Green Bay wins, John Kerry will win. If the Redskins beat them, “W” will pull off the victory.
Well, these streaks are amusing…but they are really statistical flukes, aren’t they?
At least, I’m sure my friend Scott, both a vowed Republican AND a Green Bay fan, thinks so.
