Baseball and its fans have their superstitions, but so do football player, teams and their fans – and I’m sure I’m not alone when I tell you that I have my own when it comes to the Green Bay Packers.
Baseball has its rally caps and most recently a major beer commercial has made the “labels out” superstition a household notion.
We’ve all heard about the lucky shirts that have never been washed; the lucky pair of socks that, dare I say, have never been washed; the beer glass that must be used for every game; the same food that must be eaten before, during and after every game; the team flag that must be touched before each game; heck, maybe even a prayer that must be said just prior to kickoff.
Mine is very simple and I apply it not just on gameday, but every day, 365 days per year. My superstition, is that I’ve got to fold my bath towel with the label facing in after I use it. My belief is that if the label isn’t facing in, the Packers will play poorly and probably lose.
I know, it’s pretty lame. But hey! It seems to work the greater majority of time. I’ve been doing it for years and the success percentage is way above the failure rate.
