Game Day Superstitions

Yeah, we all have 'em, and since we all must suffer through an entire weekend without our beloved boys in black & gold trouncing yet another unsuspecting victim, I thought I'd share my little rituals and superstitions - which my girlfriend finds quite amusing. :-P

 

So, here they are:

No team colors on game day. Ever. No jersey, no hat, no anything related to the Saints.

Watch the game at the same place: Cooper's Ale House, Greensboro, NC.

Order an Abita Turbo Dog as soon as the game starts.

Second Turbo Dog and food at the 2 minute warning.

Diet Coke in the 4th quarter.

I have done these without fail from the 2nd game on (I was out of town the first weekend of the season, and had to improvise - but I did adhere to every item on my list other than location!), and SO FAR (knock on wood), it has brought us to a 4-0 start, I am convinced of it.

The punchline: I'm totally NOT superstitious, subscribe to no faith whatsoever, and am a rationalist about everything in my life but the Saints. When it comes to our Saints however, I'm irrational, just ask the patrons at Cooper's Ale House in Greensboro (especially the Eagles, Bills, and Jets fans that hang there - for some reason, they don't care for me)! :-D

OK, y'all's turn!
