Every game day I wear Boise State leggings (and have since the first home game), a long-sleeved orange Boise State tee and tall socks. I have to wear them for every home game I go to. If I don't, I feel they'l lose. Am I crazy?
First of all, let's take a look at what a superstition is.
A widely held but unjustified belief in supernatural causation leading to certain consequences of an action or event, or a practice based on such a belief.
Me, as Tawsha, would like to refer to it as a ritual.
For every Boise State home football game, I wear the same outfit as the game before. For every Seahawks game, I wear the same outfit as the week before. Both games include the specific team's leggings. By the way, it's a cute outfit.
Here's where Chris starts to think it's weird. This past weekend, I was watching the Seahawks game (my team) and they were going back and forth against the Patriots. For football fans, you know what this game means (heartbreak Super Bowl two years ago - for Seahawk fans). I was wearing my outfit and had gone upstairs to watch the game. While I was putting my son to bed, singing nighttime songs and doing our wind-down, the Seahawks started scoring. Things just turned around. I went into my room to watch the rest of the game and my girlfriend was like "get out, they are doing well". Instead of being mad, I had already turned around and walked back into my son's room where I was when they starting improving. I literally laid in my son's bed past the time he fell asleep because I believed (we believed) that my being in the same place would keep things "right".
Am I crazy? The next morning, Kekeluv told me that he was putting Lennox down and the same thing happened to him. He was going to text me to ask what he should do. Guess what he did? He stayed in with Lennox because the team improved while he was there. Is he crazy?
Superstitions and rituals are a real thing. Do you do anything like this?
