    OK, I have not worn AJ's jersey in a long, long time. Every time I wear it, we have lost. I am throwing caution to the wind tonight and will wear it!

    Anybody else here going to try and cheat death, by breaking with any of your failed rituals? List what you're daring to do that has been bad luck in the past.

    Sadly, no beer on a work night, even for this. I should have planned better and taken Tuesday off.

    I broke with my usual tradition of buying an American beer for the game. Usually watching Texans would be coupled with drinking something from the States (usually Sam Adams or Bud, due to availability), but today I've broken with tradition and bought a local Canadian beer.

    If we lose, this ones on me guys. Sorry.

    Drinking lots of beer, so far it's worked 5 of 9 games this season, so I'm sticking with it ;)

    I'm breaking my season-long ritual of not watching the game on TV because the Texans are finally in prime time! Every other sunday of the season I'm stuck watching the Seahawks or the Favre's play. Damn Canadian television...

    I got a new jersey, so I'm hoping it isn't bad luck. Brought my lucky shoes down with us to the game, but the are stillettos and don't know if I can stand in them through the whole game. Brought back-up flip flops. Maybe just having them with me will work?

    I have abandoned all game day rituals. I finally just accepted that with one exception I have no control over any aspect of what happens on the field.

    That one exception is of course attending a game, being loud, and contributing to an opposing offense false-starting a few times.

    Past that nothing I do means anything to the outcome so I do what I want to do now and don't worry about it. I used to be terribly superstitious though.
