Major League Sports and the White House
The Washington Wizards, formerly known as the Washington Bullets, won their only NBA title in 1978, when Jimmy Carter was the president of the USA. The D.C. United won three MLS titles, in 1996, 1997 and 1999, when another Democrat, Bill Clinton, was in the White House. The Washington Redskins also won three titles, but their NFL championships were all achieved when a Republican was the president, Ronald Reagan in 1983 and 1988, George H.W. Bush 1992. The Washington Capitals never won an NHL title. Perhaps they are waiting for a Green Party president?
