2016: The Year of the Underdog? (UPDATED)

Just a quick post from my iPad, as my computer isn't connected to the WWW yet.
I hate to say it, but all of the underdogs seem to be winning this year, Leicester City in the English Premier League soccer being this year's champions.
Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks winning the NRL final for the first time in their 49 year history.
The Sharks?
The Western Bulldogs winning the AFL final after about 60 years and the Cubs winning the World Series after 108 years.
Notice that the Western Bulldogs even have the same colours as 
the Cubs
The Western Bulldogs. Real underdogs?
Trump would be an underdog too, wouldn't he?
Let's HOPE the Cubbies were the last underdogs to win this year, but I have a nagging feeling that we are going to be blaming the 
'Back to the Future' trilogy for giving the USA President Biff.
Great Scott!
Marty, you have to travel back to the future once more and make sure Biff is just cleaning your father's car and and not the Oval Office in January.
And no stopping for scary clowns, either Marty;-)

What the FLUX happened Marty?
You don't have to be Einstein to realize that Trump as president is not going to be a good thing for the world ... not that Hillary would have been any better, I think.
Looks like I'm going to have to go back to the future and get someone who isn't a loose cannon, if you can't do it Marty;-)

UPDATE: 11/11/2016
After updating this post about goat curses I see this story in the local news -
"A 73-year-old man is in hospital after being attacked by an aggressive goat in Queensland's Gold Coast hinterland.
Paramedics say they had to act as "goat whisperers" to calm down the animal that had broken into the man's yard at Mudgeeraba and attacked him.
Emergency crews were called early this morning when a neighbour heard a man calling for help on the rural property.
He was highly distressed when found, having been attacked by a horned goat.
It is understood he struggled with the goat for some time.
Paramedic Stuart Cutajar said the man was holding onto the goat on the driveway when they arrived.
"It had already charged at him a number of times and quite large horns, so he was able to subdue it somewhat, but couldn't let go of it through fear of further injury," he said.
Paramedics treated the man on scene for cuts, abrasions and dehydration."
