It's a good thing I've been around a while!

I'm talking about the 0 year curse--every president elected in a year ending in 0, going back to Harrison, has died in office, except for Reagan, who was shot and lived. It's just as relevant as this "pattern" of NFL/MLB championships.

Maybe that other people get banned for the smallest things and you get away with it.
Political Discussions: We tried it before. It didn't work. There are many places on the Internet you can discuss politics, this isn't one of them. Don't start that thread, don't hijack that thread, just don't.

If someone thinks that was political, then they should ban me. It wasn't remotely political though. It just ties in with superstitions and patterns like Fenway's Giants/Twins correlation. And the Red Sox/White Sox pattern too.

I didn't think it was political. Bad choice of words maybe for people who don't click on that link (bush should be assassinated), but after you read that link you can tell batman was just saying how silly these predictions are.

The Redskins and Twins both were the champions of the 87 and 91 seasons.

Just like NYG and and the Twins were crowned in 87 and 91.

So, you know..go Redskins.

The only way to resolve this is for the Twins to be contracted into the White Sox... I would have liked the Idea more before the Santana Trade, But Liriano as our #4 and Nathan rounding out the bullpen will make it a lot easier to see Mauer sitting behind home and AJ only playing every 5th day... do you think Morneau would rather play 2nd or center?

HAHA.

I've been banned for various transgressions about maybe 15 times in four plus years. That's not exactly the resume of someone who supposedly gets preferential treatment.

But, hey, if you want to ban me--go ahead, make my day*



*don't actually ban me.

A trend that I do like with the G-men:

Giants win SB XXI
Skins win SB XXII

Giants win SB XXV
Skins win SB XXVI

Just need a coach first :(:

My opinion is if the Twins bring back Bush, the Sox can win the AL Central.

There was no Super Bowl in 1905 when the New York Giants won the World Series. The White Sox, despite being a decided underdog because of their lack of hitting, won the World Series to cap off the following baseball season.

The other times the White Sox won the World Series, as many have noted, the Red Sox won the previous year. If all it takes is patterns, go ahead and be optimistic. Optimism is what the weeks leading up to the baseball season are all about.

The Twins only win when Ron Gardenhire can figure out a way to play the "poor us, everybody gets everything and we don't because we're from Minne-no-place" routine.

Cleveland is the team to beat. They've been the team to beat the last five years. How do I know? ESPN told me.
