Incredibly the World Series could last beyond this year's November elections. But New York Yankees fans should be overwhelmingly happy with the results of last year's Presidential Election. When it comes to winning championships the Yanks could be just smitten with Bam, and I'm not talking about The Bambino, Bam-Tino, Giambino, or Hensley "Bam Bam" Meulens either. You see when a Democrat is in office the Yankees do quite well in October.
In the last 12 most recent years of a Democratic Presidency between the Carter and Clinton Administrations the Yankees are a perfect 6-0 in the Fall Classic. One would have to go all the way back to the Eisenhower Administration in 1958 to find the last time the Yankees won it all under a Republican President.
Additionally the Yankees are 17-3 in World Series play when a Democrat is in the Oval Office, losing only in 1942, 1963 and 1964. So Viva La Bam!
