It doesn't matter who make's the Game Thread, it has no effect on the outcome of the game.
I had a friend growing up who actually believed the outcome of Red Sox games hinged on his positioning in his lazy-boy. He had to sit one leg folded under, remote in right hand (even though he never changed the channel) and beverage of choice in his left hand. He believed it. That's all that mattered.
Some people have stupid superstitions but the bottom line is they're their superstitions.
