    Do you have a gameday SUPERSTITION? If so what is it? And for God sakes make sure you do it next Sunday?

    As for me, I wear the same PatriotsShop pats Socks every gameday never washed and could care less! I also wear my BLUE/HOME Brady Jersey every gameday, it also has not been washed this eason. MOJO is very sensative to water! HA HA! GO PATS!

    I have to watch the game in my house (so no going to friends houses or sports bars) I also have to sit a specific chair while watching the game :D

    My flying Elvis cap has to be on my couch just above my head. No. I'm not kidding.

    No Jersey Selected

    I wear the same outfit down to the underwear and socks for every game (Meriweather jersey is the central piece). I pop open a can of Mountain Dew Game Fuel as the opening kickoff is kicked. I sit in the same recliner. And I eat salt and vinegar chips during the first drive of the game, then put the bag away.

    And yes, all of these things will be done next Sunday. I am not screwing with ANYTHING when my team is 18-0 :eek:

    Well, when the Red Sox/Patriots make the playoffs, I like to not shave during that time if possible (sometimes I can't with work and whatnot).

    During actual games, if the teams are losing and there's a seemingly crucial play/at-bat/pitch/field goal, I rub my temple with my left hand incessantly. It's weird, but it's worked.

    Um, nothing? I watch the game where ever I feel like watching it. I generally either watch it at home on my 50" or at my appartment with friends. I'll wear just about anything. I try to wear my Moss or Brady Jerseys, but I sometimes where a Pats shirt/hoodie and sometimes I just stick to my Red Sox gear.

    I was really superstitious with the Red Sox prior to 2004, but when I nearly killed my knuckles from knocking on wood throughout the playoffs in 04, I'm done with superstitions.

    Beer is central to my superstitions. I only drink Sam Adams during Pats/Sox games. When at a strange bar, and there is no Sam Adams, I'll switch to PBR (which is my lucky fishing beer) because the colors on the can are Pats colors.

    I always start drinking at noon, unless the game is earlier (I'm on the west coast). I chug on first downs. Also, on third downs (and lots of fourth downs this year. . .), I hold up my beer like the Sam Adams pose.

    Samuel Adams, brewer and patriot.

    I have a Brady jersey I wore to the game in Miami this year and also a couple weeks ago watching the Jags game.

    But I also have a TV shirt that I wore during the Colts and Giants games

    Then I have a sweatshirt I wore to the Jets game at Foxboro and the AFCCG

    I dont know WTF to wear. Maybe all 3?

    Oooo, that's a good point. I never bet on the Pats/Sox. Not even when it's straight up.

    #37 Jersey

    I wear my Rodney home jersey and put my patriots hat (logo facing the tv) on the table in front of me while I sit in the same spot on the couch. That is when I am sitting.

    When the game gets close for some reason I put the hat on.

    Haven't washed the jersey since I bought it.

    I don't shave during the playoffs. On gameday, I wear a Patriots T-shirt, a Patriots pullover, a Patriots Hoodie and an oversized Tom Brady jersey over it all (and oh do I sweat). I also spend every offensive snap on my knees about two feet off the TV.

    My wife thinks I'm nuts, but she's Dutch and doesn't understand any sport beyond soccer anyway

    #12 Jersey

    I just have to wear something Patriots. Sometimes it's only my Patriots boxers. That is to say that's the only Patriots thing I'm wearing. Not the only thing I'm wearing. I use to put my Dunkin Donuts Patriots Pat bobble head on top of the TV but, last year's AFCCG ended that tradition. :(

    #87 Jersey

    Patriots sweatshirt that I've worn for every super bowl, and for every game this year. I do wash it though.

    Pat the Patriot hat every game.

    The hat is the most important aspect. When we get behind all Pats fans must touch Pat for good luck. It has worked so far!
