Comments: Schrodinger's Box Score

Send this theory to the Nats. Maybe they'll pay you to not watch, thus increasing their odds of winning.
Heck, maybe you could blackmail the Phillies by threatening to become their fan.

I have the same effect on the Dolphins. On more than one occasion my sons have thrown me out of the room because I was "jinxing 'em".

I think you need to consult the Cubs (and Cubs fans) on the whole "don't do anything different..."

It could just be that the Nats routinely fall apart in the middle innings whether or not you watch, and when you watch you tune in just before they run out of steam....

"Wait until next year." Or that's what Cubs fans say.
