The fate of the free world, hanging in the balance

If you didn’t think there was much at stake already in this year’s Alabama-LSU game, think again.

When LSU and Alabama renew their annual hate-fest on Nov. 5, the eyes of the nation will be watching for several reasons. The game will possibly determine the SEC championship, the SEC West  winner, the Heisman Trophy recipient, the national champion, and oh yes, the presidential victor.

The last eight times that LSU and Alabama have met in a presidential election year (1984, 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012), the winner of the presidential election is a Republican when LSU prevails (1984, 1988, 2000, 2004) and a Democrat when Alabama wins (1992, 1996, 2008, 2012).

LSU is listed as a slight favorite to top the Tide at Tiger Stadium three days before the presidential election. If the Bengals beat Bama, look for the next president to be Donald John Trump. If Alabama beats LSU for the sixth consecutive time, the election should belong to Hillary Rodham Clinton.

That ought to fry a few brains among the Tide faithful.  Although in the end, they’d probably accept the trade off.

    So basically, 1 winner and 2 losers no matter what happens.

      Exactly right, there is no way to win on Tuesday (short of a moderate write-in candidate uniting the populace). Free world in deep doo-doo (not that it is free any more.) Chances of that happening is greater than any team on the planet ever beating the incredible Vols. Not sure why we are playing this season after reading all the analyst opinions.

      Repent, the end is nigh.

      I think there will be 300 million losers.

  2. This should be on urban dictionary under the definition of “Meteor Game”.

    What if the game ends in a tie?

    My question is how in the hell we got into such a mess. Billions of people on Earth and we get these two miserable pieces of $% to choose from.
    I’ve always thought that I had a half-way decent, if not a “great” choice in presidential elections. Not this time. God help us..we’re toast.

        The wonderful thing about this year is that our Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates are more qualified for their positions than the Republicans or the Democrats. Unfortunately, I believe that this is the year that will prove that the American populace is congenially retarded.

        After the election, anyone who tells me “Don’t blame me, I voted for Kodos” is likely to get punched in the mouth.

      We only have ourselves to blame. Too many good people want nothing to do with going under the microscope and being examined by a bunch of morons.

      Politics is a market like any other. If we start selecting good people for the right reasons, they’ll show up. What quality person wants to stand up on national tv and be insulted by a ignorant, poo throwing baboon to the delight of the an audience ripped straight out of Idiocracy? Not many.

    You know, some have thought we could dumb down our educational system forever and there would be no consequences…….
