I'm Uber Superstitious!

- Not Shaving
- Waking up to the Rangers Goal Song Every morning
- Listen to Misfits - I Wanna Be A New York Ranger, and Frank Sinatra - New York New York for home games, 30 minutes before puck drop
- Listen to Maxine Nightengale - Right Back Where We Started From, for Away games 30 minutes before puck drop
- When Drinking a beer, turning the tab to 11 O'Clock
- Not wearing my Dubinsky Jersey (They lost each time i wore it)
- Not Going to a pub to watch the game (0 - 3)
- Watching the game a parents house (4 - 0)
- Wearing the Lundqvist Jersey (4 - 0)
- Being Humble and not ***** talking my brother who is a Sens Fan. (Well at least after we won the series)

Funny Notes: Night Before Game 6, i put in the Rangers 1994 DVD set and watched "The Messier Guarantee" (Entire Game)

Night Before Game 7, watched "Matteau Matteau Matteau" (Entire Game)

Seemed to end well

Me, my boyfriend (im a girl) and brother got really bad as the series went on

We wore the same clothes as game 6 for 7(My brother puts on the same rangers hat and t-shirt, My boyfriend wore the same shirt as he did for game 1)
We ordered food from the same place and the same thing.
We sat in the same seat.
I Refused to throw out or move anything from the coffee table until after the game.

My boyfriend and 2 of my brothers work together.
They all touch a Rangers towel when they leave. The day they forgot to touch it the Rangers lost.

I abandoned the playoff beard after Game 5 because I felt something had to change. Then last night I wore the exact same outfit that I wore during Super Bowl XLVI.

1.playoff beard...nasty and it's only the start of round 2.
2. Stand during periods in front of kitchen tv. (worked in '94), sit at the kitchen table during intermissions and get caught up on the posts, unless we score. Then I read them right away.
3. Corresponding home/away jersey on.

Totally went against the grain yesterday and did a few things I never do. Bet on the team and wore my Rangers jersey during the game. So starting game one it will go something like this.

1.) Bet all my vcash on the Rangers.
2.) Wear my jersey.
3.) Dressing my on year old daughter in her Rangers cheer outfit, and taking a picture. (Game 1 I took a picture, game 2 she didn't wear it, Game 3 she touched it, Games 4&5 she didn't touch it because she was sick and I didn't want to make her put it on, Game 6 she wore it briefly, Game 7 she wore it and took a picture.)
4.)??
5.) Profit!

The wife and I must wear the same jerseys (me-WC Callahan, her- Richter heritage) and sit in the same place in the same room. No colors of the opposing team on gameday (under clothing included). Same game day post in the GDT.

I get frisky with the wife when NJ wins
I eat a whole bag of cookies and cry myself to sleep when NJ loses.
Not really superstition...and I think she's starting to cheer for competition.

-Listen to Map of the Problematique, Lonely Boy, and then the "I am a Ranger" video right before game time
-I have one CCM blank white and one CCM blank Blue jersey, so I wear the color that the rangers are wearing
-Wear the same Rangers hat each game

I won't wear the shirt they gave out at game 1 anymore.

Yes, we won game 1 and I was wearing it at the game.. but I wore it for Game 2 and 4 and those were losses.

Won't wear it again on a game day.

I actually avoid the forums when it's gameday. I will not even look at posts when I have my phone with me.

Doing so, and Game 6-7 were ours.

-Started the playoff beard and kept it going until game 4's loss (was way too angry and decided to shave). Haven't touched it since and do not plan on doing so.

-Same clothes for the game if we won the previous game, different clothes if last game was a loss.
-Sit in the same spot on the couch.
-Eat the same meal if we won the previous game.
-Rally towel from game 1. (Had one from last year's game 4 against the Caps but got rid of it for obvious reasons).
-My third grade students chant "Let's Go Rangers" on the way out at the end of the school day. That one is my favorite. They rocked the school before game 7!

The three losses the Rangers had in this series, I:
- watched the game at home
- didn't do my nails (I have nail polish that's an almost exact match of Ranger blue and painted my nails for the playoffs.)

Yesterday I made sure to go out to watch the game somewhere with a fresh new manicure.
