I can't wear the opposing teams colored clothing during games. If I am, i always put something white or black on in its place. Don't have anything orange though.

I'm really unlucky. The other day I had a pocket full of change. As I was walking back from class, I dropped them on the ground one at a time. All 10 or so coins landed heads up, I just give my luck away. So when it comes to hockey, I try every superstitious ritual I can within reason.

I said they were gonna lose a very close game one, which they did.
I said they were gonna get blown out game 2, which they did.
I said they would win both games at home, which they did.
I said they were going to have a good game but lose in Buffalo for game 5, which they did.
So for today's prediction, I say they win by 2. God let me be right with this sixth sense BS.
A+ prediction.

For Flyers games, I have a pair of lucky boxers I wear, sadly they failed me last night (like the first time they failed me....Game 7 of the Conference Finals vs. TB, 2004...).

When I play hockey, I'm VERY. I have a set order I put my equipment on, if I mess it up I get worried, and if I mess it up and score a goal, I keep the routine that I messed up with. Kinda funny actually.

I am very superstitious. During the games I have 2 beers per period and one during the second intermission. The parents say I'm a drunk, me? I'm just helping the boys!

if the Flyers win, I'll keep the nail polish on the same color. But if they lose, then I change my nail polish color. I'll wear the same thing i wore when they won, wear the same scrunchee(sp?), sleep in the same room, wear the same pajama pants to bed, listen to the same songs as well.

but yes, i am very superstitious

Odd story here. I have this cup that has been in my family for 30 years. It is your usual drinking glass except it is devoted to the 76 Flyers cup team. I drink from it every flyers game since it fell into my hand in 2003. On Saturday, it broke in my dishwasher!

I knew there that the series was over.

Almost same situation. I always keep my nails the same way that they are, since they've been winning. After game 4, I broke two nails
