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)

UPDATED FOR THE FLYERS SERIES!!!

Guy Carbonneau (the human, not a poster): HOPEFULLY, HE WILL WEAR THE UGLY TIE AGAIN!!!
Lyle Odelein: Wear Odelein jersey, Begin T-shirt and watch the game with a Guitar Hero controller around his neck. Watch tape of Game#2 from 1993 cup finals.
crazyshea: Pulverize a small rabbit with his car. Kill larger animals (Bald eagle?).
Jeffonfire: Don't watch the game at home. La Cage?
GoHabsGo20: Fly a flag on his car and at home.

I will not watch tonight's game at home.

stats:

We're 0-3 when I'm watching at home

We're 3-0 when I'm watching somewhere else (Bell Centre, La Cage)


so I'll probably be at La Cage aux Sports tonight with my bro and some friends.

You should have taken that rabbit's foot. It might have brought us luck for tonight.

I'll be wearing my only undefeated Jersey/ T-Shirt combo which is my vintage white Richard Jersey with a plain white jersey, it has a 14-0 record including last years visits to the Bell Center.

I'll also eat Delissio deluxe pizza for supper as they won all games this series when we ate that before.

If they lose... welll

But they wont !! GO GO

Will wear my white shirt with a blue and red pattern on it to work. And a red necktie. Yes, the shirt looks like a table cloth or something a clown would wear. But I'm making that sacrifice. Wore it on the morning of Game 1 (yes, the games are on in the mornings here) and that worked out OK. And later on when I'm at the gym, I will only do sets of 6, 8 or 11 reps for TKost, Komi or Saku respectively.

Would have been better if you hit a bear (assuming you were ok afterwards of course )

I've worn my Komi jersey for every game, going back to probably mid-March. I hadn't put it through the laundry, mainly because I put it on for the game and take it off after so it wasn't really dirty. About two weeks ago I noticed some discoloration on the white stripes, but we were winning, so... yesterday I broke down and washed it.

Now I have to decide whether to wear it or switch to my white jersey...

I'd take the injury is we were guaranteed the win. Problem is by the time i found a bear to hit around here it would be playoffs time next year

I'll probably wear my white Koivu #11 jersey for this one. During the regular season I always wore my casual clothes that I always wear when at home. I kept wearing the same clothes for the first game of the playoffs and in the second game, until the Bruins came back to tie it, I put on my red Koivu jersey on and eventually Canadiens won. After that I've been wearing that same jersey so its record is 2-2. Hopefully the white Jersey turns out to be victorious in its debut.

I only washed it b/c we lost! I didn't even wash it after the first loss, only when we lost two. Trust me, I'd have let it go until June if we were winning.

I've got my lucky habs t-shirt on tonight. Everytime I've worn it during the day, we've won. I think. It's all I can do, my Higgins jersey draped on the chair has failed me.

the volcano hasnt explode for some time now. i guess its good energy still available for the habs... lolllll

edit, also i shaved my head.. but the day before last game.. still we lost.. but i said to myself i wasnt do it for the habs.. but in fact.. i think i know I DID.. oh well.. hehe, other than this I have really changing approach to the game.. trying to reverse the mojo somehow..


btw, some freaky signed happened yesterday.. I was getting home.. and i have my keys in my pocket. when i pulled out my keys.. my habs sign i have with my keys.. removed itself from my keys.. i saw it as a sign habs are going out of playoffs.. the thing that hold the sign with my keys.. got loose.. I did manage to fix it back my hammer the best way i could..... after a couples of knocks.. the little metal think was replaced perfectly.. so i wonder.. it wasnt somewhat almost lose for some time now.. the thing is.. wich part are you going to take.. the habs out, or the habs replaced in order.

I am positive.. so i take 2nd option.. but i had no decision on removing the the habs sign on the first place.. but i did had the decision to knock the thing off to replace things the way they should be.

GO HABS GO !!! DESTINY AWAITS!!!!

sorry for my poor english. its really terrible when i read it back.. ahhhh if only french was allowed.. lol.

I'm not doing anything. I've already done too much and it didn't seem to help. So for the grand epic jinx-busting supersuperstition... I'm going to eschew doing anything at all. For the first time ever. See if that works.

I'm almost glad my toque-wearing attempt last game failed, in that it's waaay too hot to have to keep wearing the toque every day!

I'm wearing my Red authentic Kovalev jersey (as it's a home game) at work over a navy blue long sleeve Habs t-shirt. I'll be wearing them both for the game too.

I don't know if I'll be doing my playoff ritual from last year (Bulldogs run) tonight though. Last year I used it a fair bit and the Dogs were something like 10-2/3. Not used it much this year (as I didn't in the early rounds last year) and it's 1-1. Last year it worked great in the must win games. I did it before game 6 and we all know what happened there. If anyone feels strongly about whether it should be used or not, let me know.

"What will you do to help the Habs win tonight"

Poison the Bruins' food and water.
Kidnap Tim Thomas' kids.
Bring a sniper-rifle, in case a Bruins goes on a breakaway.

You know, the usual...
