Anything recorded could be plotted. Say if you were modeling American college football wins (yes/no), many large programs play smaller schools early in the season. So you would imagine to predict wins early in the season based on prior year's data since playing smaller schools is a 'seasonal' pattern.

Why don't use a regression model instead of time series analisy?
