DBD 08.28.09 Gameday superstitions


It's no secret that, as dedicated Cal football fans, our spirits have a tendency to rise and fall with the success of our favourite football team. Sometimes, we get so connected to the game that we feel responsible for what happens on the field. This is why, oftentimes, you will see fans (especially in the south) praying during games (worth noting: Tony Dungy, a religious man, says he never prayed for his team's success because God has better things to do).

 

That said, what are your gameday superstitions? What things do you think, or imagine, affect the team and try to control? Is it out-of-control expectations - imagining victory in a close game while the game is still within reach? Is it taunting the football gods with trash-talking and stupid "FOURTH QUARTER'S OURS" chants? Or is it something as simple as wearing the wrong colour jersey? Bringing a good-luck charm?

 

My personal superstition is simple - as a general CFB fan, I like to follow almost every single game on Saturdays, including West Arkansas A&M @ Mid-Nebraska Tech. I check scores on my phone constantly, but for some reason, bad things always happen to the team when I check scores on my phone while I'm in the stands. As such, I try to keep my phone hidden away.

 

Anyway, let's hear yours!

 

P.S. Eight days till Cal football!
