in the interest of unfairness

In the interest of unfairness, the Senate today has passed an unprecedented resolution to spot the Chicago Cubs ten runs tonight in their game against the evil doers, the LA Dodgers.
"This should even out the playing field a little bit and make our baseball economy even more robuster than it was before", said Jack Reed (D - Rhode Island). "Those lovable Cubbies are down 2 games to zip. If our government isn't allowed to change the rules mid game then what chance does democracy and capitalism have?"
"C'mon!", added Arlen Spector.

The lovable Cubs got beat by the beloved Bums!
Is there a metaphor than can be employed here? Something about a ball and its unpredictable manner of bouncing?
