Cum Hoc Ergo Propter Hoc

I was watching Saturday’s Norwich game against Chelsea on ESPN. The commentary was clearly intended specifically for US use. During the game it was mentioned that the last time Norwich beat Chelsea was the same season that the San Francisco 49ers had won the Superbowl. I was at that game, the 3-0 win over Chelsea, not the Superbowl.

On Saturday Norwich drew their game, managing a clean sheet for the first time this season. They failed to emulate their 1994/95 victory, but came close. On Sunday the 49ers failed in their attempt to get to this year’s Superbowl. They lost the Championship game in over-time after a fumble. So these two events are still linked by having last occurred 17 years ago.
