Just kidding no I dont. Well, I guess I always wear the same jerseys to home games and for away games I don't really have a superstition I guess. I figured I would but I realized I didnt. Oh well. In the NFL I do but not for the Preds which is ironic. Maybe too many games to keep up with a superstition...
The normal one: I've got one of those plastic Predators wristbands that I wear only on game day.
The weird one: If it's an away game I bang my fist three times on the coffee table in unison with "Let's Go Preds" prior to faceoff. I did this one time in a moment of excitement, we won, so I kept it up whenever I'm at home to watch. I haven't kept up with how much luck it may actually bring but it hasn't brought destruction upon the team so I'll let it continue.

Reason: Had to make myself sound less crazy.
If our goalie is getting close to getting that thing they get when they don't let any goals in, no one is allowed to say the word that starts with shhhhh.... I can't say it now because it's game day.
By the same token, if that afore mentioned word is not possible for our goalie, I'll say it as much as possible to jinx the opposing goalie!
I try to wear as much Preds gear as I can on game days... I have lots of accessories like earrings and socks and a scarf. They are my good luck charms.
I do have a weird one... I have a special bra that I wear when I feel we need extra luck. Every time I've worn that bra to a game, we win. I don't want its luck to run out too soon though, so I only wear it when we really need it. Like Saturday against Detroit. You guys can thank me.
I remember in 2008 Game 3 against Detroit we were down 2-0 after 1 so I decided to walk around the concourse during the intermission going left instead of right because I thought the team would get the memo that I was doing that and they would play better. And they did and we scored 5 goals and won game 3 then won game 4 then it apparently stopped working.
I wear one of two shirts -- one long sleeve, one short sleeve. Since I've only missed a handful of games this year, the long sleeve T-shirt is getting some mileage - holes and such. Not sure what I'll do next year considering this T is going to get us through a couple rounds of post season play! Can't imagine it holding up over another 80+ games. But you gotta do what you gotta do.
adzy, whats the status of the spider and the bobblehead? is that just for breaking losing streaks?
I still have the Dunny in my office and there are still black widows outside...it was for luck. When I started telling the lads they were gonna get their butts kicked, the Dunny and Spider fell out of favor. I still have the Dunham jersey that I will wear after 3 home losses. So far it's still doing okay, but I found out the hard way during the playoffs a few years back that it only works after home losses. Can't be used after a road loss, can't be used for less than 3 and can't be used just for positive mojo. :-( I'm still trying to calculate the good or bad mojo of the new thirds. It appears that they work well if I wear it on Tuesdays...
New ritual: A double of Black Label prior to 5:00 PM before the first Playoff game. Yeah. I went there.
Gentlemen, I believe we are in the same group here. I try to always take a shot of whiskey on opening face off, for every goal, for every period we end with a lead, and a double for a victory. Remember that game in which we beat Detroit 8-0?
(I also do rally shots if needed. I guess that's the same as TPCR)
