On Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs secured a 38-35 Super Bowl victory against the Philadelphia Eagles in Glendale, Arizona. First Lady Jill Biden was in attendance and had tweeted earlier in the day, “We’re ready. #FlyEaglesFly.” She had also posted a video of her wearing an Eagle’s jersey with the number 46 and “Biden” on the back. Despite her enthusiasm, the Eagles ultimately lost with a Harrison Butker field goal with eight seconds left on the clock.

This isn’t the first time that Jill Biden has been present at a championship game that her team has lost. In November, the Houston Astros won game 6 of the World Series against the Phillies. The momentum shifted for the Astros after a no-hitter, despite the Phillies leading 2-1 in the series. Jill Biden was also present at this game. The Astros were only the second team to ever pitch a no-hitter in the World Series.
And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout,
But there is no joy in Philly—mighty DOCTOR Jill has struck again. https://t.co/tW95dYLI6I

Now, fans are pointing out that it may be more than just bad luck that these teams have lost in the championship game with Jill Biden present. Some have even gone so far as to call it a curse. It is true that both of the First Lady’s teams have now lost in the championship game. Whether it is bad luck or a curse, it is clear that Jill Biden’s presence has not been beneficial for either team.
