Question Just for Fun – Game Superstitions or Rituals?

Thought it’d be fun to hear everyone’s game (past or present) superstitions or rituals…..

Here’s mine…..my husband travels a lot for his job. My heart broke for him yesterday as he boarded a plane in Baltimore for California (LA not San Diego) at 3:30 and didn’t get to see ANY of the game……

So, on my way to work this morning I’m thinking how glad I am that he will be home for next week’s AFCCG…. if anything to help keep me from having a nervous breakdown….then I thought again…..

In 2005, he was away for all the playoff games (Italy ) – we won and ultimately went to and won the SB.
Last year, he sat along side me….at home and watched us lose against Jacksonville
And obviously yesterday……we won!

How terrible of a wife would I be if I call his boss today and REQUEST that the be out of town next Sunday???? Cause seriously, I’m thinking about it!

I break out my Bettis and Rothlisberger jerseys along with all three Terrible Towels. I'll wear one jersey, hang the other on my chair that im sitting in then ill take two Terrible Towels and drape them on the edges of the television. The third sits atop my shoulders while im watching.

During Superbowls i watch alone. I wont allow anyone in the same room as me during Superbowls. Im a pacer too. Ill pace when im nervous back and forth a few feet beyond the tv.

And you have been great. It's always fun when opposing fans like yourself are very intelligent and classy. Keep up the good work and and hopefully you will stick around even after the Steelers win on Sunday

Oh, trust me, especially if Philly wins the NFCC.

I worked in Philly for 7+ years. Bad enough they won a WS title, but please! No Super Bowl!

We always drape an extra Terrible Towel over the TV in the Steelers Room.
