    Re: Gameday Superstitions

    If at home.. I prefer one lamp on, out of line from the tv so as not to glair, and definitely no ceiling lights on. Not sure why, just feels right.

    We used your second method once during halftime, ISU made a huge comeback and it became a tradition for a while.

    Unfortunately once kids came the wife decided that wasn't a great tradition anymore. You can blame her for the McDermott years.

    Re: Gameday Superstitions

    If at home and we are doing poorly or losing I will change clothes. So far this year at halftime of the BYU, UNI, and Iowa games I have changed into black nike sweatpants and a black under armour quarter zip pullover. And I will come back and switch to a different chair.

    Gee whiz! I'd have hired a sitter for the Mc D years if I'd known!

    Is your half-time activity how you got your user name?

    Re: Gameday Superstitions

    Seating position is big for me. Toward the end of the Iowa game that James White won in OT, I had a spot on the couch that was working. I went to the bathroom during a commercial. Coming back, ISU was about to snap the ball and I literally laid out horizontal and flew through the living room to land back on the couch in time. And it worked.

    I had to go put my ISU underpants on early in the second half despite them being in my dirty pile. It worked.

    I have a cool shrine to the "Bill Self assassin" that I bust out for every game :)

    Re: Gameday Superstitions

    Last season when we had the Vegas tourney and West Virginia football game in the same weekend I wore my high school class ring both days, and watched as we lost all 3 that weekend. I've never worn it on a game day again. I also have a football jersey that when I ever consider wearing we lose our football game. Too dedicated to throw it out, but too superstitious to wear it.
