What will you do to help the Habs win tonight (superstitions)
I know that what some fat guy does miles away from the Bell Centre has no real impact on the game, but I can't help but think that my little routines, might have some impact on the game in some removed way or another.
I am going to wear my Lyle Odelein jersey. I spilled beer on it during game 2 and haven't worn it since due to a nice stain (yes, I do laundry that rarely). It's making a return tonight with my Begin T-shirt underneath. This clothing combination has a stellar record of 2-0 so far this playoffs. The power of two such warriors combined cannot fail in improving the Habs' chances tonight.
Most important of all, I will watch the game with my Guitar Hero guitar around my neck. This was how I watched the first 5 minutes of game one (I had to play to kill time because I was going crazy and got the hockey game on just in time.) It was only after A Kost's goal that I realized I had the guitar in my hand. I had forgotten about this in all of the hysteria that has happened post game, but I can't help but think that in some way, watching game 7 tonight with my Guitar Hero guitar in place will bring the Habs back to their glorious form of early in Game 1.
I remembered something else. I'm going to rewatch the Desjardins hattrick game from the 1993 finals. I did that on the night of the first game and it worked well.
The question is, how are you going to help the Habs tonight? Let's hear your plan.
Edit: Going to keep a running list of our contributions here (Hey, it kills time)
