Re: REDSKIN RITUALS. What weird things do you do to help the 'Skins kick butt on Sundays???

First thing, early on game day ... I clean the room that I watch the game in (run the sweeper, clean the TV screen, pick up and put away any "stuff" that detracts from the neatness of the room, take out the trash and wrap up the weeks laundry ...

Middle of the morning ... watch 1 hour of church service on TV ... I often need the Lords Blessing upon me when I watch the 'Skins

After church, if it's an early game, I go on-line and fire up the Redskins pre-game show ... if it's a late afternoon game ( like this week ), I take a little more time in the housework

Around 30 minutes before kickoff, I change into my "Game Watching clothes" ... Redskins T-Shirt, Khaki shorts and White fitted Redskins cap with the red 'R' on it, and settle into my Lazyboy ... I have the NFL.com Gameday site up, with the pregame show playing ... since I am no longer able to get NFL Sunday Ticket ( thank you condo assoc. ), I open my favorite on-line webcasting site, and when the link comes up ... off we go!

My family knows, after being married for almost 21 years, that on game days when the Redskins are playing ... don't bother Dad !!!

I love my wife and my son ... they understand my quirkiness, and they don't hassle me.

And when the Redskins win ... it's a good day !!!

You gotta get the ground rules straightened out before this relationship gets "serious" ... just kidding.

Tell us she's a 'Skins fan ... !

Re: REDSKIN RITUALS. What weird things do you do to help the 'Skins kick butt on Sundays???

Over the years I have shed most of my crazy rituals, because during peroids that skins were doing bad I assumed it was all my fault - so i stopped doing certain things. That explains the 15 redskin shirts in my closet I don't wear on game day. My wife wants to throw them out, but I told her I find comfort just knowing they are there....she just stares at me. Thats okay. My shirts understand me.

I guess the only rituals I truly have start after a game when they loose. I start off by being real angry and cuss a lot, and discourage any human contact. I spend all day Monday just hating them and wondering why they would personally do me wrong like they did and swear I will never fall for it again. Tuesday, i start by feeling sorry for the Redskins and making excuses about how close they came and if that only done "this" or "that" they would have won. Wednesday, I start to convince myself that the loss was just something that happened and it is all correctable. They have the potential. Thursday, I fall back in dispair and wonder how long I can survive being addicted to a team like the Redskins. Friday, I start to get a little bit of my spirit back because I have resigned myself that I have been riding this roller coaster for over 38 years and there is no getting off. For every game sitting in the pouring rain (with more Cowboys fans then Redskin fans) watching Tim Hasselback earn a 0.0 QB rating while Dallas slaughters the Redskins - there are the beautiful sunny day games of a year or so ago when we slaughtered the Cowboys. Saturday, I am angry again. Don't really feel like spending the next day getting up and dealing with the drive to FedEX field and all the all day commitment to the game - wish I could just stay home and watch it from my couch. Esoecially since I know they will "blow" it again. Sunday, get to FedEx about 3 hours before the game and let my father in law cook me something to eat. Then...it happens.... everything fades away and I convince myself 100% that the Redskins will be victorious today by a score of 47-3. My lack of faith and dread of another painful loss falls away and I go right past hope to 100 % certainty that today the Redsksins will win. I sit in my seat and watch the game and go through 3 hours of what can only be classified as the on set of Stroke conditions and/or symtoms till the the end of the game. If they lose - I repeat the enitire ritual. if they win.....I just stay comfortably numb and in a happy place for the entire week.

Re: REDSKIN RITUALS. What weird things do you do to help the 'Skins kick butt on Sundays???

I started thinking of the stupid things I do during the game, and decided to search the thread history before re-posting. I'm sure there are new members here that haven't said the crazy things they do.

1) I have a 13ft tall Skins banner that has not been flown since halftime of our last loss.
2) No Redskin gear has been worn on game day since halftime of our last loss, this includes laying on the couch/recliner with a team throw blanket.
3) Cellphone has been off 5 minutes before kickoff since that last loss.

How about yours?

Right now I have a beard that has been growing since the beginning of our bye week, and will continue to grow as long as we keep winning.


No other ritual or superstitious stuff though. Nothing I do is going to be tied to the success of the team so no sense in me doing anything I wouldn't normally do. The beard thing is a bit different since I'm just having fun with it.

I find someone's house that is a Dallas fan with a dog and steal it and then rehome it so the dog won't have to face a terrible home environment.








Just Kidding. I rock my #21 Jersey all day every game proudly. Except for this week when I received my brand new burdungy beauty #10 jersey for Christmas!!!!!

I get drunk! Keeping it simple! If we won its cause I drank, if we lose its cause I didn't drink enough! Looking at it that way I get to do it before and during every game.

I don't have my first drink until the Skins have a lead in the games, looks like it might be a light night of drinking for me.

I've had a peculiar one during this streak. I wear the opposing teams colors. Started by accident when I realized I had put on a green sweater during the Eagles game. And I just stuck with it

Good luck finding seattles colors anywhere other than their jersey.
