Yeah yeah, we know all about players and their individual quirks for entering the playoffs (not shaving, not stepping on the chalk lines, wearing lucky charms, having the same meals, etc.) but what about us fans?? I'm sure in the midst of all of these games each of us has our own quirky rituals that supposedly guarantee our teams a victory. Care to spill the beans??

My old room mate and I used to munch on those hideously dyed red pistachios during the Wings playoff runs (seeing as how they're playing now, I might start soon!). For the '84 Tigers games it was always a rally hat. Another one for the Wings had to do with that mini Stanley Cup on top of the TV that none of us dare touch. The Pistons I really didn't do much other than watch.

When teams wore the colors they are SUPPOSED to wear (i.e. WHITE for home, RED for away, the way God intended it to be!), I always wear the respective jersey while watching the game, although that isn't working for CRAP now!!! Not very original, I know, but I thought I'd throw my 2 cents worth in the ring (cup).

I got a Pistons little bobblehead trinket thing at a game and never brought it inside (got lost in my trunk)

I brought it in for game 3, when the Pistons got housed.

It went back in the trunk, where it will remain.

I never watch the first period, and I never wear socks during a playoff game. needless to say, I usually watch the games at home.

When the Wings won in Edmonton last week, I had driven my Mom's red Mustang (aka, "My Mom's Red Wings Car" to work. I drove it to work today. Let's hope it works. [Sigh.]

Always stand up when Chauncey is setting up for a three. Dribble a basketball during timeouts to calm my nerves.

Whatever Red Wing superstition I had up until tonight went out the window. I'd like to think that my superstition (it always comes back to us fans) wasn't the cause of the Wings' demise but why take a chance?

I only watch the final quarter of any deciding (must win) pistons game in a series.. Root for them to loose, works every time. If I cheer them to win, they're sure to loose.. :>

I have the same Piston superstitions now that I had during the Bad Boys days. I have chants during the 4th quarter that I won't reveal. I have to park in the same area of the Palace lot for every game. I have beads that I must wear to say my 'hail Chaunceys'. My nails are done in a red/white and blue pattern that needs to be duplicated exactly every time I get them done (during playoffs only). I can never again have a chicken salad sandwich at the Palace, we lost a playoff game the one time I tried it. Tuna's ok though...I cannot touch a blown up thunderstick during a game. And if you are ever at the Palace and see someone doing Rip's free throw routine along with him, c'mon over and say hi! Yes, I am a fairly sick woman...but I have a good time, mostly.
