As long as there has been pro football, there have probably been fan superstitions. Like there was probably some Canton Bulldogs fan in the 1920s who refused to take off his trilby hat for two years as the Bulldogs went undefeated through the 1922 and 1923 seasons (seriously, nobody ever tell Mercury Morris the fact there was a previously unbeaten team, he would freak out).
I, for instance, ate at the same Del Taco and walked out of the same gate at Angel Stadium during the 2002 World Series. You might think that's weird, but the Angels won it all, right?
In any event, I reached out to you via Twitter (this is why you should follow me) to get some of your superstitions and rituals. And you didn't disappoint. Here are some of my favorites.
