How do you show your playoff spirit?

Just wondering people's rituals or special things they do around the playoffs. I'm wearing my jersey today since the Wings face the Preds tonight. I already had a random person say (jokingly) that their mother would knock me down if she saw what I was wearing. I also have the flag up on my car.

Does anyone have anything unique they do? Or good stories about playoff rituals?

I basically lock my self in my room with my nice t.v. I go and buy some IBC Rootbear and Cream soda....Beef Jerkey as well. I really just focus on the game.
Although I do have a good luck charm.....My dog past away a year ago and we had him cremated and I have his ashes in a charm on this neclace I have.
I only use it wisely, but if I really need the Sharks to come threw that thing is in my hands......It's worked before

Also I tape the games in the playoffs.


I JUST LOVE PLAYOFF HOCKEY!

You cremated your dog and put his ashes into a necklace?

Is it just me, or does anybody else hate the flags on the cars? It's particularly bad in Toronto. Especially if you're not a Leafs fan. At first, I was wondering if I could get away with "collecting" flags myself, but at 230 lbs and not-exactly-linebacker-speed, I figured I might do better to employ somebody with a bit more mobility... so for any fast enterprising youths in Toronto... $5 bounty on any of those stupid Leafs car flags you can bring me!

When Philly beat Toronto I put one of those leaf flags on my car with a big "X" through it. Of course when I parked my car I took it down, I didn't want to get a flat tire.

My playoff ritual is I grow a beard, eat a hell of a lot of Chips and proudly fly my Leaf flag on my car. Thanks to this thread I now know too keep an eye out for a 230 pound dufus who wants to rip flags from cars . Really man, let people have their fun, how is a bloody flag ruining your day? Do these flags somehow taunt you as they pass you?

Good for you, show your team spirit. Put lots of flags on your car too. That seems to piss some people off.

I usually go with the beard thing...I usually shave it off a week or two before playoffs start, and then let it all go. It'll get REALLY shaggy...it has before.

So, the beard thing comes until Colorado is knocked out of the playoffs.

The playoffs are the worst time of the year for me. No one wants to know in England so there is no one I can speak to about the games. I find myself boring my friends, telling them about how Robert Esche needs to find form or how we'll miss Eric Desjardins and I can see the boredom in their eyes.

I had that problem (apart from my Dad, he's a huge hockey fan) so I converted my partner. Now I can talk to her about how important it is that Theodore attends training camp and Blaisdell and not Howe is the best right wing of all time.

For last years playoffs I was particularly fascinated by the swedish-blonde-afro-mullet type of hairdo seen on some players, namely Alfredsson and Axelsson. I did my best to emulate their dedication to letting their hair grow by starting well before the playoffs began. My goal was to not cut it until the team with the last swedish-blonde-afro-mullet player was eliminated. It felt very nice to cut the hair when it was all said and done.
