Re: Superstitious about victories?

I bought a Santana Moss Jersey and when I tried to put it on on game day it was to small and very tight. The hanger had been marked wrong. And I had just bought a new ball that I hold. This was at beginning of win streak so I still am wearing the to tight Jersy although I can barley move and hold the new ball. I guess I need to lose a few pounds so I will be more comfortable for playoffs.

i get what you are saying but the power of the ball is unmatched.

=================================

I have this football right. Now i can only use this football once a year. ONCE!!! so i save it. It works for 24 hours for good football stuff to happen. I can only use it ONCE every football season.

THe good news. I have not used my lucky football yet this season. To use it i must proclaim i am using it and place it on, near or behind the tv(depending on the type of TV ofcourse).

I stressed many games deciding whether to use it or not but i had hope throughout the entire season that we would make the playoffs. I saved it for the playoffs. I was about to use it in the eagles game but i said NO we need this for the playoffs. I almost used it early in theseason but i held strong.

Now in the playoffs. I won't put it up before a game starts because i feel that we may not need it. The power of the ball is not all great. It works to a certain limit. No amazing 1 minute comebacks but if there is a last two minute drive that we need to get into field goal range to win the game it is money. I can put it up anytime. I will save it as long as i can but if things look grim it may come out sunday.

I am saving it for the superbowl and will put the football up before the game so we have good luck the entire game. That is if my skins can make it to the super bowl on their own without the power of the football

I am usually in the chat room during game days. I will take advise on whether to put up THEE ball and have consulted with friends throughout the season. I mean i call them up and say "is this the time for the ball?".
I'm gonna need some instances of greatness from this "magic ball" before i put my faith in it. I just watch the games with my kids(my 4month old son is major good luck)and my 89 burgandy jersey,with my fav. redskins hat

Re: Superstitious about victories?

Haha I actually find it lucky NOT to wear my Portis jersey, the only win they had when I wore it was the first Dallas win. I stopped wearing it after we lost three in a row, so it has been working well.

Re: Superstitious about victories?

I wake up early before most folks and get naked and climb on the roof only wearing a leather helmet where I sit crossed legged facing N-NE in the direction of the old Griffith Stadium.

I sing Hail to the Redskins 3 times then climb down and make Bacon and Eggs.

Go Skins!

Re: Superstitious about victories?

Every game I have watched this year, the skins lost. Every game I have listened to on the radio with Sonny and Sam, they have won. I guess I won't be watching any more skins games the rest of the year. Maybe I can get my neighbor to tape the games for me.

Re: Superstitious about victories?

I'm not a very superstitious person but right before this five game winning streak i bought a new redskins tee shirt and have worn it during every game since. I had to work the day of the giants game and wore it under my work uniform. Needless to say, i will not stop wearing the lucky tee.

Re: Superstitious about victories?

Ive got a couple of things i do..first I got a Riggins jersey hangin over my tv that i wont wear..i make my son wear his Portis jersey and hat and we both wear our pants inside out. I was tryin to get everyone to do this cause ive been doin it for five weeks now. Everyone going to the game sport your pants inside out and start something amoung Redskins fans. Lets take over the stadium with burgundy and gold ...and inside out pants. Boston got the inside out caps during playoffs we got the inside out pants.

Re: Superstitious about victories?

I have worn my throwback Arrington jersey with a pair of gray sweat pants. I put the jersey on about 1/2 hour before the game. I have worn this outfit for the whole season and we are 10-6. I didnt get into my uniform until the second quarter of the AZ game and we just got out of that one, so it must work right???

Re: Superstitious about victories?

I watch my game over at a friend's apartment. He has DirectTicket and 4 tuners with 4 TVs, one of which is a 52" DLP HDTV. All of this is in the living room during football season. I go over there to watch the skins when I'm in Nashville (usually). I have two jerseys: A burgundy Arrington and a burgundy Jurgensen. I've worn the #9 for the past 5 weeks straight while placing an autographed picture of Joe Jacoby blocking the stuffing out of some Packers dude by the TV. I also listen to an NFL films CD through in the hour before the game. I forgot my picture last week and had to go get it at halftime. I missed the first couple of plays. Within 5 seconds of putting it in front of the TV, we threw the long bomb to Moss to get it inside the 5.
