As i was headed to my car and changing for work after Game 5 I caught a wiff of my jersey...
it smelled...musty. I had refrained from washing it since the Preds have won every game I have worn it for, whether i was at the game or not. I started wondering if it was OK to wash it now that the series was over or if I would wash the luck out of it. I know that there are some very specific rules to certain traditions, such as the playoff beard. I know some people who think if they are watching in a certain room or with certain people it can change the outcome of the game. Another example is to say "Shutout" or "Perfect Game" while one is actually going on. Generally if davisca calls out SK, he will score a goal or two in the next game. I tend to not believe that what I am doing at home or what I am wearing affects the play on the ice, but I think that it is kind of fun to play along.
What are some superstitions/traditions that you participate in?
Do you believe they really make a difference?
Can I wash my jersey?
