WASHINGTON (<span style='color:red'>Reuters</span>) - The Washington Redskins lost their final home football game before the U.S. presidential election on Sunday -- and that's great news for Democratic Sen. John Kerry and bad news for President Bush.

In every presidential election since 1936, the Redskins' last home game has accurately predicted the winner. If they win, the incumbent president's party wins. If they lose, the challenger wins.

The Redskins lost to Green Bay 28-14 and Kerry quickly celebrated.

"I think it's a good tradition to follow," Kerry told reporters on his campaign plane. "I think the country should stay with tradition, don't you?"

In a written statement released earlier he said he was thrilled with the Packers win.

"The Packers have done their part, this Tuesday I'll do mine."

Bush campaign spokesman Scott Stanzel dismissed the notion that the result was a good omen for Kerry.

"After today's victory, we're confident Packer fans across Wisconsin will be excited to go out and vote for the candidate who understands the 'frozen tundra of Lambeau' is not a dessert item in an expensive French restaurant," Stanzel said.

Fans sometimes call the Green Bay team's home Lambeau Field -- named for the man who founded the team -- "the frozen tundra." Kerry recently mistakenly referred to the stadium as "Lambert Field."

Just read this on Fox Sports;

"Oh, yeah, he's going to win. It's guaranteed," said Packers safety Darren Sharper, a Kerry supporter. "I don't have to vote now. Don't even have to go to the polls. Saved me a trip on Tuesday."


Well, hopefully a few more Kerry supporters think like him :D
