    Game day superstitions

    I didn't consider myself superstitious, but last year my wife gave me a red Iowa State polo for the basketball season. I started wearing it for the home games, and I quickly realized that we were winning all of them. Obviously I decided it would make sense to wear it to every home game since it was "lucky". Then the Kansas game came, and it was a Golden Rules game. I was torn if I should follow my tradition and stand out or join the masses. Against my better judgement I did not wear my lucky red polo, and I think the only reasonable explanation to the end of the Kansas game was that the superstition gods were punishing me and the rest of Cyclone Nation for my transgression. For that I apologize.

    Anyway, I wonder if anyone else has some game day superstitions?

    Yep, I always were underwear, unless I don't. That's about it.

    I have to wear an odd number.

    If I wear an even number of ISU branded clothes it's bad mojo.

    Socks. White socks. Different copies of white socks. Not the same ones over and over white socks. Makes me feel better through games. Makes winning go smoother.

    There's our problem. Everyone knows that odd numbers are evil.

    Re: Game day superstitions

    My superstition this year seems to be getting ****** off because there is a stupid bye on two weeks in September instead of a game.

    Ouch, I hope that isn't the team's superstition.
