Athletes tend to be a superstitious lot. Professional athletes, even more so:
- Make sure you always put on your uniform the same way (until you have a bad game, of course).
- Tape your stick only in a certain way.
- Eat the same exact meal before a game.
The list goes on for days.
Personally, I never bothered with them in high school and college sports. I didn't think they made me any better. I also figure I'd be pretty well hosed if I wasn't able to make the exact same sandwich or whatever the case is.
What about you, fair reader/commenter?
As an athlete or as a fan of them, what's your take on rituals and superstitions? Partake in any yourself?
