    Howard, as a lifelong Orioles fan (the Browns arrived when I was eleven), I can put your fears to rest.

    16 out of 26 times is about one standard deviation off from 13 out of 26. One standard deviation is hardly a significant indicator of relevance. Furthermore, in your own data, you indicate that since your poli sci class it’s been three out of six; i.e., completely random.

    So root for our amazing Birds with impunity, knowing that sadly, we probably can’t influence the outcome of the World Series by our rooting, but happily, neither can the improbable victory, if it comes to pass, influence the election.
