Losing For Kerry? 

Yahoo! News - Kerry claims victory after Redskins' loss
Senator John Kerry declared victory in the US presidential election, staking his claim on a historical quirk linking past White House races and the Washington Redskins football team.

The National Football League's Redskins lost 28-14 to the Green Bay Packers at home on Sunday and, if tradition holds, this means President George W. Bush is bound to lose the White House.

The legend surrounding the Redskins' last home game before Election Day is simplicity itself: If they win, the White House incumbent will remain president. If they lose, the incumbent loses.
One wonders, did the Redskins throw the game? It would be the ultimate act of patriotism if they did, but I hope not. I want an honest race even down to the meaningless omens.

UPDATE: Apparently, Limbaugh says the refs threw the game for Kerry.
