Superstitions: not crazy if they work.
If you want to know why superstitionados do the things that they do, then you need to throw logic out the door, because having a superstition is all about going with your gut and keeping the winning tradition alive.
Well that, and some other stuff too...
For instance, you have to wear the same outfit for every single game.
And you better not wash any part of that outfit.
And let's not forget, if your team is winning, nobody can move.
Now for the most part, having a superstition isn't all that bad when your team is performing well. Sure, you can't move or do anything, but watching the game takes less effort.
The hard part comes when your team is losing. That's when things start to become stressful and that is where our lesson truly begins.
When things start to turn bad, the first move is always to move around the objects in the room.
It could be as simple as turning a bottle around 180 degrees.
Or standing up for a little while.
Did you try holding your breath and hovering over your seat during a crucial play?
If that doesn't work, it's clearly time for people to move around now.
Basically, just play "Hot and Cold" with the things around you and see what works.
When you finally find the perfect combination of moves, it's time to shut down.
And that means no talking.
And definitely no celebrating until the game is officially over.
Oh and one last thing...
