I go to church; does that count?
Do you have anything that you ALWAYS do before/during a game? A certain food you eat? A certain jersey you wear?
I bout my Jared Allen jersey at the home opener. We won. I wore it last week during the game. We won. Guess what I'll be wearing tomorrow.
Everything happens for a reason.
for home games.
before me and my dad go to bed, drink a beer. we wake up, drink 2 beers. on the way to the game we drink 3 beers. before the game we drink 10-20 beers. and on the way to our seats, we chant the tomahawk chop song.
thats my routine.
it might not work every time but we get our daily and much needed beers.
I wear Priest for home games and DT for away games. (I wore Priest the first 2 weeks while the Chiefs were on the road. Wore Priest at the home opener and wore DT last week.) I hope I have now found the working pattern.
Thanks for all the yards, TDs, and memories, Priest!
A couple of years ago, I tried to adopt my own alcohol related ritual for the games. It didn't work. I decided I was going to drink a "shot" of Jaggermeister, for evey Chiefs touchdown. For two weeks, I had one shot per game. The third game, (I think it was in '04) I alterred the rules. I decided that I would drink a shot, for every score, by either team. I don't remember what the final score was, because I blacked-out. After that, I decided I would abandon the idea and drink when I wanted to.
Currently, I have no specific rituals.
