The ATW question of the week was “What is your superstitious game time routine?” Do you cut the heads off live chickens? Do you smoke only when the offense is on the field? Do you not wash your socks? We asked and you responded, so here is your superstitious routines…which by the way…haven’t worked!
Stephen from the Miami Herald forum said – “I put on my Ronnie Brown jersey, drink from my 1980’s era cup with orange soda and eat shrimp! Not sure why I eat shrimp but it worked for awhile. Maybe I need to change what I’m eating.”
Joey Mallory – “I’ve done everything to drinking non-alcoholic beer, to watching the game naked. I’m still searching for something that works…LOL If it’s possible I try to eat food that reminds me of the other team. If we’re playing Buffalo, I eat buffalo
wings, if we’re playing New England, I eat New England clam chowder…etc.. This doesn’t always work out. I couldn’t imagine eating some Jets, maybe I should try some New York style pizza or something like that. My new thing is that I decided to delete the wall paper on my computer. Up until about two days ago it was the Dolphins schedule and Joey Porter. That things been there all year and we’re 0-11 so I got rid of it. I basically do whatever I was doing when the Dolphins are doing good, over and over again until i realize what I’m doing has nothing to do with how the dolphins are playing. But I refuse to believe that.”
L. Vickers – “If the Dolphins are losing at half-time, I make my wife have sex with me. She stopped in week 3 this year. This sucks!”
Tom Ranty – “I will not wear the same clothes every week if the Phins are losing. I will change them. If they win, I wear them exactly the same each week until they lose, but then I blame it on forgetting something.”
Chris Munoz – I really don’t do much of anything anymore. I used to burn something of the other teams prior to the kick-off. But that started getting a little much. I have done the whole “no shaving” bit and what not, but hell I would have a long long beard after this year.”
What Do I do? “I used to tear up the QB football cards of the opposing team at a critical time. I had an entire shrine going. Like a few of the others above, I would do similar things as well in terms of clothing. I would only smoke when the Dolphins were on Defense and would blow the smoke so that only the opposition would be exhaled on. I quit smoking a year ago…Miami hasn’t won since. I’m debating on starting again.
