So, What Was Your Superstition...

Title says it all. What was your superstition during The Streak.

Personally, I've yet to break out either of my Hawks jerseys. Didn't do it for the first five or so games, they were winning, and then it just kept going. I wore red, and even a Hawks logo shirt on occasion, but not a jersey.

You???...

I covered my entire body in crisco before every game and listened to the entire soundtrack to the Broadway Musical Cats between periods. The grand finale was sacrificing an alley cat after every win.

Don't believe in this stuff, but I didn't wear my Hawks jersey on game day for the first time this season and they lost. Spooky.

I usually keep track of the points per game (2, 1, or 0) on my pocket schedule, but I didn't get one this year until about 18 games in... not going to lie, I've purposefully held off marking it as a result, haha.

I moved between the two colorado games. First time watching a game in the new spot. It's all my fault.

I try not to as well, but it's difficult. My Hawks sweatshirt needs a good wash. Maybe it will get one now.

I didn't have one. I'm still undefeated when making a GDT though, so I guess there's that.

Streak was fun and all but I really didn't get too caught up in it. NHL is all about the playoffs when the game goes to a whole different level. I guess I just kept myself grounded.

My trick was to keep one avatar on another forum. The site goes buggy, the avatar goes amok, Hawks lose. For every regulation loss, I will change my avatar on that forum.

I've been wearing a Hawks rubber wrist band since before the season started. I guess that helped. I also wore a Hawks shirt every game day during the 11 game win streak.

I don't believe in superstitious nonsense, but I wasn't going to chance it.

I have a really nice black leather Hawks jacket, I started wearing it as soon as the lockout was over and for some reason didn't wear it for the first 6 games but as soon as they started piling up points I didn't wear it at all and refused to look at it till they lost in Reg. Now I can wear it again, kinda stupid whatever works.

Normally I don't believe in this kind of thing, but I'm starting to worry. My gf has never seen the hawks win a game. She's seen 4 from the most recent Vancouver series, 3 from the Phx series, and the one in Colorado the other night.

I made it my mission to not miss a game.

They never lost when I watched.
