You have probably been living under a rock if you don't already know the New Orleans Saints are 6 and 0. You can feel the excitement in the air. If you log on to facebook, chances are you'll see a "who dat?!" post. Will this be the year... Dare we say it... The Saints make it to the Superbowl? From sitting in a certain chair to watching the game on a specific television, many black and gold fans are very superstitious. One family insists that their 11-year-old son wear his Saints jersey whether he watches the game or not because he's worn it every week since the beginning of this winning season. Dave Baker refuses to wash his favorite Saints hat for fear that it may jinx them. One die hard fan called his favorite radio station to relate the story of last week's game. He decided to wear his Saints jersey. Well, in previous winning weeks, his wife had worn it. The game began and the Saints were losing badly. He and his wife realized what the "problem" was so they swapped shirts (are you getting the mental picture?) and the Saints pulled off a big win.
In the spirit of Saints superstition, we are wondering... do you have one? Is there something special you do for EVERY game... Just in case? Let us know!
