Supersticious minds...

With a big game coming up I was wondering what supersticions or rituals you guys have before or during Chelsea games.

My main one is that I cannot/do not/will not watch penalties (either individial penalties or shoot outs). I have to look the other way or leave the room. I can listen to them but not watch them. I have done this since the world cup in 1990.

I will watch penalties against us though as I hope my jinx makes them miss.

My only other one is that if we win a game I will watch the next game at the same place (eg the same pub or at home) but if we lose I will never watch the next game at the same place.

To let you all know I was at home listening to the Newcastle game so I will be at the pub on wednesday night!

I've got this thing about beer(don't we all? icon_lol.gif ) when I'm at a pub to watch the match...when the 90 minutes is up and the injurytime starts, I simply can't have an empty pint ahead of me. I need to be able to take a sip immediately after the final whistle. Like toasting to victory, so to speak. If I "toast" too soon(empty the pint before final whistle and there's no time to get a new one), I might jinx it. This is something that I do only when Finland or Chelsea are playing, though. 431.gif

I'm very supersticious but I don't have a certain thing that I need to do.

Here's a list of things that I either try to avoid doing or that I have to do:

1. Don't masturbate. Might sound wierd but I get a feeling it will jinx my team. Like God will punish my team if I do it (even though I don't believe in him).

2. Sit at a certain place on the couch. If things don't go the right way I might move to a different seat as if that would make a difference.

3. I try not to go to the bathroom if it's a close game. If I go someone will score (us or them).

4. Don't be cocky before the game. I never boast about what an easy game it'll be because that will surely jinx us.

I bet there are other things that I either have forgotten or don't actually know about icon_confused.gif

That one's ok. He'll only make you go blind and you just won't be able to see the goals.

I have to confess that the draw at the Toon on Sunday was my fault. I have a CFC tee-shirt that I nearly always wear to watch the game and I have raraley seen us lose while I have that shirt on.

This week I didn't wear it, I wore a different CFC shirt that Loz gave me. The only other time I have worn that shirt to watch a match was the loss to the Spuds 1064.gif

I was getting so much grief from Mrs Yorkleyblue (you know who you are) about how the shirt I was wearing could not affect the game so I didn't go and change to the lucky shirt before settling down with my normal cup of coffee and Sopcast. You all know what the result of that horrendous error was!

I also have a 10p piece that I picked up in a pub a few years ago while watching the 4-1 against the scousers in their slum. I usually have that in my pocket and toss it in the air during the second half. This weekend, I didn't do that

I'm very superstitious but I do have a certain thing that I need to do.

Here's a list of things that I have to do:

1. Masturbate several times. Might sound weird but I get a feeling it will jinx my team if I don't. Like God will punish my team if I let don't do it enough. ("Show some effort man!")

2. Sit at a certain place on the couch (not on the wet spot, ideally). If things don't go the right way I might not be able to get up.

3. I try not to go to the bathroom (see point 1 - there's no need).

4. Become very cocky before the game. I always try to boast about it with claims that I'm twice as big as a Man Utd fan and eight times bigger than Leeds. And don't even get me going about the Arse.

I bet there are other things that I either have forgotten or don't actually know about, but they're usually to do with point one so it's okay to forget them for now...

Sorry darling. Not my finest hour. icon_redface.gif

Since I can't remember winning a penalty shootout since 1990 I suggest you start watching them again!
