Ok - so everyone (myself included) is up in arms over the last 4 losses (my temper flares like gas on a fire each time I get a text from my Raiders fan friends), the offense, the OC, the defense, the special teams, and the list goes on and on.

I'm ready to talk about something else. We know what the issues are and have been. I'm ready for the Browns and getting this thing back on track. I don't know about you, but anytime we beat them, I feel a little bit better.

To that end, I know that we all have our own little rituals or superstitions that we all follow win or lose. One of mine has always been that if they lose, no one in the family wears any Steelers gear until the next game day (it is kinda starting to evolve into until we win again). What are some of yours?

during this losing streak, I wore my #86 WARD jersey the first 2 games, then my #95 Lloyd jersey last week, traveling to various taverns to watch 'em Stillers:
we celebrated my fiancee's birthday yesterday, so I didn't wear a jersey, but a Yellow turtle-neck baseball shirt under a Black dress-shirt, and the still lost, to lowly Oakland
:noidea:

I'm be switching between the Penguins playing Montreal & 'em Stillers versus the Browns Thursday evening, and I am seriously thinking of wearing my #25 Talbot Penguin SCF-winning sweater, trying to break this slump

I am going to have to break out my 70's jersey's cause my current ones are a bust. Lambert this Thursday against the Clowns, Green against Green Bay, Harris against the Ratbirds, and Greenwood against the Fins.... maybe bring some of that 70's magic back and finish off the season 10-6

Bear in mind we are 6-6, so our rituals are working as well as not working. :noidea:

Everything Steelers got washed after this loss. That includes terrible towels, all jerseys, shirts, clean socks, and everything else, didn't matter if it was clean or not I had to get the funk of 4 straight losses off.

I have the usual stuff like what Steelers gear I wear or I use my Steelers mug for coffee on gamedays, etc.

But what I really find funny is that if superstitions really did work - to think that these guys are out on the field busting their butts to try to win but they end up losing because some random fan in Iowa or something forgot to wear his Steelers underwear that day :rofl:

I feel the same way but still always carry out my rituals because I don't want to feel like I did something to jinx the game. I know its dumb but hey superstitions make sports better.

Hey you might be onto something here. It worked for the Titans, maybe it's worth a try?? :hunch:

You're not superstitious?? That would take the fun out of it for me:chuckle:

Unfortunately I'm the type the does different things the week after a loss and if we win, I stay with it. Lose, I change it up again.

And yes, I'm nuts.

I always have my my Terrible Towel somewehere on me. It is around my shoulders if I am eating or wrapped around my right hand (It makes for a good stress ball). The last time I took it off while they were playing Bettis fumbled in Indy.

I need to figure out a new ritual or routine because the past 4 weeks have been brutal. I am running out of ideas about now :chuckle:
