Exclamation Steeler Superstition

do you have a Pittsburgh Steeler related superstition that you hate to admit you do before each game? some pro athletes have them and i know i do. so, tell me what yours are IF you have them.

this may be a pointless thread in the wake of that stupid loss to the Titans, but i thought it'd be a good one to try and have some fun.

==========

every week before a Steeler game, preseason included, a buy my game food and buy a 6 pack of Rolling Rock the Friday before the game. i ALWAYS have to drink Rolling Rock.

the Saturday before a Sunday game, i break out my Steeler gear. a jersey, the Terrible Towel, and whatever other tee shirts or hats i have. IF i leave the house, i wear my gear. if not, i keep it ready for one i wake up on Sunday. to me, Steeler Sunday is like Christmas morning. i wake up extra early and get my pre-game watching over with. RIGHT before kick off i strap on my gear (including old school black and yellow Chucks) and find my spot on the couch. beer in hand and 10 month old puppy (in Steeler gear too) at my side. i make sure my house phone is off and my cell phone is on silent. ther remote control is ready to mute the commericals and then i get ready for the kick off.

sounds like a typical ritual...BUT the devil is in the Towel. i have my Terrible Towel in hand and i wear it around my neck on offensive plays and i rest it on my lap on defensive plays. on 4th quarter comebacks, i wear it on my head instead of a hat...just incase i have to puke it my hat. haha!

IF the Steelers win...i wear my gear for the rest of the day and i am Mr. Happy Go Lucky. IF the Steelers lose, i disrobe and hang my jerseys back up in the closet and put my gear back where it belongs only to wait until the following week. but, you can't even talk to me for the next week or so and i find myself reading Steeler magazines and books and watching Steeler dvds. i kill alot of time on these boards as well. =)

maybe i take it a LITTLE too seriously...but i'm sure there are more freaks out there. i want to get the skinny on those cats. haha!

If I am wearing a hat, if our defense is on the field my hat has to go backwards (I want REVERSE plays)...

O line... hat turns around for advance field plays...

Yep.. its sad.

I'll watch the game on different TVs throughout the house depending on how we're playing....(i.e one TV might have more luck then the other)

Of course

Never run out of beer. If I do the steelers probably lose

I don't know why I started it but I must have had my reasons :

During the season I grow a beard if we are on a winning streak I dont trim or shave. Also I have to wear a jersey and a steelers shirt under it.
