    When things start going really bad and I start thinking we might be in real trouble I put on a hoody and pull the hood over my head so I can barley see. It's never failed when I've done it including Saturday

    Re: How your superstition helped win the game

    You know, in 2008-2009, I led the charge that this Alabama team is good, they donít need superstition as we were shedding all the Gameday, headgear, SI JINX , etc superstitions. As we are getting later in this dynasty, I am reverting back to some small superstitions. I overthink plays. I TALKto the TV. This is from my days of going to games and talking to the fans around us and watching games on TV with friends and family . Even while Iím alone , I still holler and yell to the point my family( all girls ) leave during Bama games. And while yelling, I once made a mistake and said letís go defense while the offense was on the field. We turned the ball over on the next play. Now I think during games that I canít call out the wrong unit while they are playing. I get so wrapped up in this that I flirt with disaster by thinking about the wrong unit in my head. Kinda like moving a hurt finger or arm even though you know not to , just to feel the pain. Sure enough, something bad happens now just by thinking about the wrong unit. Itís magnified by the fact Iím temporarily in a wheelchair and canít burn off nervous energy. But thatís a superstition and a struggle I go through during games. God I need a psychiatrist!

    Guys. I want to give Jalen some props but really. Really the reason we won that game was because midway through the 3rd quarter. I went and changed into my 2009 national championship T-shirt that I bought from the Rose Bowl and the Bama hat that I wore during the undefeated season. The one my dog chewed up but is still wearable. Maybe.
    RTR. Youíre welcome

    Re: How your superstition helped win the game

    Funny. I wore the wrong shirt Saturday. I thought to myself as I put it on, we will probably struggle in this game now. But I'll admit my usual superstitions and nuisances had largely become laughable memories my kids tease me with. I mean, Bama's been boat racing teams this year, right? So why be nervous enough to run around the house one full lap if our team lost momentum? Why wear a new Bama shirt every year and break it in on A-Day to assure its capability to acquire victory mojo? Well lesson learned, after three quarters of causing Bama to struggle I went and located the correct attire and sho nuff, Boom Bama wins. I know there are thousands of people depending on me to get it right. The stress can be, well, enough to make me crazy. But I will not let you people down again, I just had this one bad game.

    Re: How your superstition helped win the game

    You are all normal compared to me, lol. This is for only tightly-contested games:
    I move from spot to spot while watching the game depending on that spot's mojo. If it's going well, I stay there. If things aren't going well, I move to a spot till something good happens till something bad happens and repeat. I've stood behind the couch watching a game.

    As for drinks, cup with logo has to face the television and the cup can never get below half-full.

    As for clothes, if things are going poorly, and thankfully, that's seldom, I'll change shirts for better luck till I wear one that's bringing good luck.

    The above always works. You're welcome Coach Saban and Alabama nation.

    At games, I'm totally normal.

    Re: How your superstition helped win the game

    Part 1: I usually never wear ANY Alabama gear on gameday. Then, this year my Sister sent me a black Alabama t-shirt. I've worn it all year long.

    Part 2: During Thanksgiving I bought a shirt at the Alabama Bookstore on the Strip. At the counter they were giving out I <heart> Rammer Jammer stickers. I was going to an Iron Bowl watch party so I grabbed a handful. At half of that game we put on the stickers and boom!- mojo turned. Suffice it to say we put on those stickers at half of the GA game....

    After reading many of the posts, I think many of US need to be placed in Bryce Hospital. However, I think they closed that facility to EXPAND the U of A.
