WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - “Know you’re gonna be talking about a win, because the Skins are gonna cruise 31-17 tonight!”
That was Cakes on Monday morning, only hours before the Eagles sprinted to a 26-7 first half lead over the Redskins on Monday Night Football, and eventually hanging on to win 33-27.
As a refresher, Cakes has a long history of negatively intervening into the fate of Washington sports franchises.
It’s not like every time he predicts a hometown victory the team loses. It is, however, inevitable that in a big game, when it most appears that either the Redskins, Nats or Caps are in the ideal position to make D.C. proud with a win, sorcerer John Auville steps in with his mythical powers and reverses their fate.
Just look at all the vitriol that came pouring into his Twitter timeline (in no particular order) when it became clear he’d burned Washington, D.C. yet again.
As if the message needed further reinforcement at this point, remember: Always, ALWAYS #BetAgainstCakes
Listen to the prediction that F’ed everybody at the bottom.
