Superstitions?

Postby bagobonez » Sun Sep 05, 2004 3:20 pm

Is anyone else a little superstitious when it comes to drafting?

For example, when I was trying to decide if I should draft Chad Johnson, I was at a clothing store and saw an orange T-shirt that had the number 85 on it. I thought it was a "sign" so I went ahead and took Chad.

Anyone else do things similar to this?

Never really thought about it, but that's pretty cool.

Yup. I wear the same pair of socks that I was wearing during my first FF win of the year on every Football Sun. the rest of the year.
I generally do pretty well (since 1986). Almost forgot-can't wash em.

I've never considered myself superstitous but I could see myself aiming for someone after getting a sign. I know I've done it before, but I can't remember any examples...
