    Gameday Superstitions

    Anyone out there have any superstitions or rituals for gameday?

    I personally will wear the same Iowa State shirt until we lose, and continue wearing the same shirt on win streaks, and switch shirts after each loss.

    Needless to say I have alot of Iowa State shirts.

    Anyone else?

    Re: Gameday Superstitions

    No deodorant on game days. Men are meant to smell like grilled meat, sweat, with a touch of beer/liquor breath to ice the cake. You know, that breath that your grandpa has right before he sits down to watch Matlock? However, don't overdo it. There is a fine line between grandpa and the 55 year old guy with a beard and the Def Leppard shirt walking out of Whiskey River. Supersticious? Maybe not, but I feel awesome.


    Enjoy.

    Re: Gameday Superstitions

    Last thing listened to before I leave the house is the Iowa State fight song, only wear a red hat (Thanks Missouri), and a full cooler regardless of how many of us are going.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    No bathing of any kind during a winning streak. After a loss, a baptismal type bath in the crystal pure waters of Lake LaVerne is required to purge all bad karma.

    Re: Gameday Superstitions

    Hmmm I noticed for a while that when Superfan and I wore opposing color schemesd (on of us with red shirt / gold shorts, other gold shirt red shorts) Gene Chizick actually pulled his head out of his *** and won a few games... but that didn't last long

    Game day traditions... never leave the house, no matter how late I'm running, without playing the Fight Song

    When I watch at home, play the fight song after every score


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    Re: Gameday Superstitions

    Not a ritual of mine, but one I should share:

    A buddy of mine's brother bought an ISU shirt when he first got to campus his freshman year. He wore the shirt to every ISU game all 4 years of college. When he graduated, he gave the shirt to my buddy who was coming in as a freshman. My buddy wore it every game until his sophemore year when the shirt fell apart at the shoulders. To fix the problem, he cut the front logo off of the old shirt and sewed it onto a new one, and continued wearing that to every game all through out undergrad and grad school.

    By now the front logo is completely worn off, but he still wears it to every game he goes to.

    Strange but my old roommate has a tendency to get in a fight in the stands whenever we play a team that starts with an N. If anybody knows what section LakeBison is sitting in please let me know as I would like to send him over there to check things out.

    Re: Gameday Superstitions

    I feel best about the game at hand when the one pair red underwear are next in line on gameday (without planning, counting days, etc.) This morning, guess which drawers were on top in the dresser???

    Judging by the results of the past few years, you just started a thread compiling a list of things people need to quit doing.....
