    Pre and Game Time Superstitions.....Let's hear about yours?




    For some, it may be something as simple as wearing that certain players jersey while watching the game.
    I for one have had a number over the years..




    I used to have a Vikings Troll Doll, and I would comb his hair before kick off and talk to him... :




    Not to many years ago, I would put all my pets outside, not only did I get tired of thinking they jinxed me, but I don't think they liked me yelling at them when we had a bad play or outcome to a game..




    For the past couple years now, I tend to believe that my Pre-Game ritual brings us lots of luck, and I try to cook different ethnic meals.....





    I won't change the style of cooking till we loose a game, then I pick up on another the next week..





    For the season opener this year, I made, italian style hot sausage and peppers....WE WON... ;D





    Last Week I made Lasanga....We Won AGAIN...





    Tomorrow, looks like I'll have to wip up a little something Italian again, to keep the streak going red hot...





    I'm going to make one of my favorites...Eggplant Casaroule
    ALA ITALIANO...





    HOW CAN WE LOSE NOW.. ;D


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    I put on a jersey, and tell everybody to shut up.

    Oh ny god! I was just thinking about this.
    On game day,I can't wear any Vikings clothing. I can't drink coffee out of my Vikings cup or mug.I have to move that stuff out of my sight.
    I can't watch the pregame shows.
    I can't look at the pictures of the starters they put up on the screen at the start of the broadcast.
    I can't have anything out of place between me and the TV.
    And I can't look away when they show the cheerleaders. Well, maybe that one isn't a jinx, but I still can't look away;right Cajun?

    If the opponents get a lead, I have to stop watching the game!

    Last week for example...Brad threw an int when we were down by 7, I turned off the game until it was over (had to go to a school function). We won!! Sucks but works!

    For Home games, I make sure I wear a home jersey.
    For road games, an away jersey.
    I don't wash the jerseys after a victory and make sure to wash them after a loss.

    That's about it.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Gotta wear the hat, despite the fact that my classmates who are Lions or Packers fan often find that as reason to verbally lynch me.
    WE CAN BUILD ON THIS!!!

    In AP I trust

    I wear a jersey every game day, if we win I don't wash that jersey until I wear it on a day we lose. I don't eat during the game and if I drink and we are winning I need to keep drinking, if we start struggling then I have to stop drinking. Very stupid superstitions, but oh well.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    it all depends on whats happening, but normally its food. i remember when we were playing the packers in the playoffs,
    i had some extremely lucky cookie dough. when i watched the redskins game at the local burger hut, i had some blue gatorade, and was that some lucky gatorade or what?
