The law of averages is the proposition that the occurrence of one extreme will be matched by that of the other extreme so as to maintain the average. That means that no matter how well a football team is playing, it cannot expect to win week after week.
It also helps to explain why some restaurants I go to can serve four 10-rated dishes in one meal — and others will barely get a pass mark. You win some, you lose some, is another way of saying it.
