World Series as an Election Preview??
I'm sure that this has been reported on sports and/or political shows, but I have not seen it. I just thought last night--if the Red Sox pull off a miracle and end up defeating the Yankees in 7 games, and the Astros win one of two games in St. Louis, we will have a World Series pitting Texas against Massachusetts. Remind anyone of a certain political contest being waged this fall? I've seen everything from the NYSE, the Iowa Electronic Markets and the Farmer's Alamanc cited as a predictor of elections. Why not the championship of America's pastime? Alas, at this point I am fearing that the Red Sox have about as good of a chance as John Kerry at winning--not good, but possible. Also, it is interesting that I am neither a huge fan of the Red Sox, or John Kerry, but I am rooting for both of them because I intensely dislike their opponents.
