    How your superstition helped win the game

    Was wearing a short sleeve t-shirt with “Crimson Tide Football” on it. At Half changed into a long sleeve National Championship (17) shirt. Quickly changed back to original t-shirt. Didn’t want to be responsible for a Bama loss. You’re welcome Bama Nation!!!

    I stopped posting in the 'Predict the Score' thread after L8U and MSU and we have played better since.....

    well except last night.... but we still won so I will continue to not predict the score.

    Thanks for the thread. At halftime I realized that I had not put on a Bama shirt. I put one on at halftime and the game turned around. You’re welcome.

    I felt the urge to turn to superstition so strongly last night, but I fought it off. Instead, I watched the entire game with the TV on mute, I couldn't take Gary. I sat there trying to convince myself that it's just a game and that my life won't be hurt if Bama loses. I'm still working on not taking loses so badly.

    This was me. My wife was a lot more relaxed. I was ready to puke.

    I had my black out shirt from the 2008 game and I also wore that for the National championship game in January

    Re: How your superstition helped win the game

    When I'm not at the game(s) , I ALWAYS watch the game(s) in the media room. For some reason I was watching this game in the family room. With the score 14-28, I finally asked myself, "Self, WHY are you not in the media room!? Off to the media room. The first play I saw in there was Jacobs' 59 yard run. Three plays later the score is 21-28. Bottom line: Family room 14-28. Media room 21-0!

    I wear the same outfit shirt to socks and shoes and everything in between.

    Last year we had a bundt cake for my sons birthday during the iron bowl.... then we brought another bundt cake for the national championship game. I made a comment at halftime about the bundt cake and my mom set it on their back porch and the rest is history. So bundt cakes are not allowed anymore

    Re: How your superstition helped win the game

    I have a shirt that I wear pregame and than a different one during the game. Yesterday I forgot to switch at the start of the game. I realized my mistake at the half and changed shirts. We played much better in the second half and won. Sorry to cause all the stress. RTR

    I'm not actually superstitious, but my wife and I do have fun with it from time to time.

    My wife accumulates little stuffed animals, and some small ones ended up lined up on an ugly couch we have. Well, we're trying to sell the couch, we took some pictures, so they had to go.

    Right before Tua gets knocked out of the game, my wife declared that they need to be back there and got the box they were in so they could "watch". Well, Tua gets hurt and I declare that they have to be lined up like before so they can all see.

    Hurts enters the game and the rest is history.

    Re: How your superstition helped win the game

    So I normally pace the floor the entire second half of any game we are not blowing them out. I sat down on the couch at about the time Tua got hurt and Hurts came in. His first drive was outstanding and I wanted to get up and pace the floor but I was afraid I would hex them so I stayed on the couch and didn't move until the final Georgia pass was deflected out of the endzone. It was excruciating but I had to take one for the team.

    FYI I almost threw up when I realized we had to kick an extra point to tie the game.

    Re: How your superstition helped win the game

    I wore a brand new shirt yesterday to my buddies watch party. Luckily, Ol’Faithful was with me and I changed shirts in the 2nd Q. When we FINALLY scored to cut it to 28-21. I left the pool cabana area and went inside to grab a beer. Stayed inside as we got a stop. Rest of the game on offense I watched outside and made the 100 yard sprint into the house for defense. I ran out right before the Hail Mary and was told “Get your butt back inside.”

    Besides winning, the positive was:

    I got in my 10,000 steps yesterday! I also realized don’t buy a new shirt the night before a big game!

    Wore my lucky underwear. Stopped at Outback at Chapel Hill Road in Douglasville GA for lucky pre-game steak lunch. And guaranteed our next win in Atlanta by stopping at Cracker Barrel in Douglasville for lucky post-game breakfast-for-dinner!
