If they bite on this, I'm willing to pitch in a few dollars myself, if you give me the data on when you do and don't watch. I'll do an econometric analysis, and if there really is a Pepple effect, documenting that should bring fame and fortune to us all.

Ha! I doubt if they'd look at my insignificant blog. As for actual data, this is just my impression. (It's also my impression that if I watch Leicester, they will generally lose.) I imagine if I actually started taking data, the whole effect would disappear.

By the way, my wife has just reminded me that in the late 1990s, whenever we were about to go on a trip to England, the dollar would plunge in value against the pound. Fortunately, that effect seems to have disappeared.
