Talk about rituals and superstitions.

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?
