Sports Superstitions

May 11, 2009 |

Sports and superstitions go together like peanut butter and jelly. This is especailly true in hockey.

For example, fans of the Caps and other teams have grown “playoff beards”. Red Wings’ fans are known for throwing octopi onto the ice. I have adopted my own superstition for this series: posting a blog with the video below.

Every time that I have posted that video before a playoff game, the Caps came through with a win (look it up if you don’t believe me).

So, I will continue to crank up this Pummeler song and video with hopes that the Caps pummel the Penguins and take this series from them for good.

I would like to read any sports supertitions/rituals that you have. Until then, go Caps! Go Ovechkin! Go find the jerk who is paying off the refs in the Penguins’ favor! And go find some tissues for Crosby!
