    Several people are superstitious when watching their team play... Do you have any rituals that you partake in when watching the game?

    I used to be. Then I grew up and came to the conclusion that I'm going to be disappointed by the end result no matter what stupid jersey I wear.

    And such is the life as a San Diego sports fan.

    I used to be superstitious because it was fun to joke about. Then I found out people actually take it seriously and it lost its humor value.

    I wash my charger socks. I don't wear them, I just wash them.

    My only superstition is that I won't call a game a win until it is over. And it pisses me off to no end when some Charger fan around me says something like "it's over!" way too early.

    Well since a supersticous person *who asked me for a cigarette* then a lighter, but then turned down the free light for his free cigarette because he is supersticios about red lighters...

    superstition is superstupid. But I do enjoy laughs at my friends who *knock on wood*.

    I ain't superstitious, I'd gladly accept a 13 win season and the a SB win with a score of 13-0.

    What's superstition, and what's tradition?

    Superstition is when you think that if you don't do something every time, it will effect the outcome. Tradition is when you habitually do something, for an occasion.

    It's my tradition to wear Charger gear on gameday.... that doesn't mean I think it has any effect on the outcome.
