I think I would have waited until after we win the SB.

Re: My August pick to win it all!

I did the same thing at the Venetian in the first week of August. I put $10 down and got odds of 66-1. I'm hoping that one pans out!

My wife put $10 on the Colts and got 6.5-1. It's kind of funny to think that a Redskins-Colts super bowl is still a possibility at the divisional weekend.

Dude, that hilarious!

My girlfriend did exactly the same thing for me back in August. $20 at 30-1.

At the time I just thought it was sweet of her to throw down $20.

Why has Washington continued to wear all white uniforms? Why do some fans have the exact same ritual, every week, on game day? Why do pitchers(baseball) never step on the baseline when they go to the mound? Sports superstition. Even if they don't believe in superstition, 95% of players and fans do think about them when it comes to sports.

Re: My August pick to win it all!

southpaw, you realize he's had this thing a lot longer than yesterday right? so posting a picture of it shouldn't matter cause it still exists in physical form regardless of the date :P

If you think anything a fan does has any effect on the players of the game you are completely mistaken.

If we win, I'm definitely printing this sucker out and taking it to Vegas when I go right after the Super Bowl. Thanks, Warpath!

Re: My August pick to win it all!

I almost smacked my mom for taking a Skins ornament off the top of our X-mas tree before the last philly game because I put it up about an hour before the St. Louis game and we hadn't lost since. During the first half of that philly game I kept giving her dirty looks and she kept apologizing profusely like she was actually the reason that we were playing so poorly. Obviously the ornament had no impact on the game; just like the fact that I had to watch the game while wearing a tux as opposed to my normal Skins hat/fleece combo last week because I was at a wedding didn't matter.

I used to think the clothes I wore or the chair that I was sitting in or whatever affected the game but it really doesn't. The only lucky charm that this team needs is St. Gibbs, and I'm pretty sure he'll be there on Saturday.



This team makes its own luck, we're just witnesses...

Re: My August pick to win it all!

Amen, Art.......

But it can't hurt to wear exactly the same jersey/shorts combo 7 times in a row, can it?

Re: My August pick to win it all!

What does superstition hurt? Why tempt fate? You can't prove that fans and their rituals have any less affect on the game than he can prove that it does. Maybe it is silly but it is one of his way of enjoying the game and his team. Don't be so rude as to put down something like that. There are a lot of people who'll probably get peeved because they do a lot of the same things.

Absolutely. I make my son wear the same Skins sweatsuit every Friday to daycare, and then my wife has to wash it so he can wear it again for the game. Is that silly? Sure. Does anybody actually believe that performing a certain ritual will guarantee a certain outcome? Um - yeah, actually. It's called religion.
