This time of the year, my superstition is cranked up to major levels... with that said:

We did in in 09 and look at that result.

These threads are bad juju.

if we did, I stand corrected, but I was pretty sure it didn't start until last year...

I think they're stupid anyway tbh.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

Even though i created the last one, i don't really like them either.

It's just something we have to do. Can't stop now.

I'm sure anyone who grows a playoff beard, which they would never normally wear in public could understand :thumbup:

There were more than 1000 posts in the thread for game 1 and we lost.
So it didn't work (big suprise...).

So let's drop it, we're not 5 anymore.

I went to buy some camouflage pants the other day but I couldn't find any.

We've been doing it for some years now. I think it started 2004 if not at 2002 but I know it's been a while now.

It just seems like an attempt to boost post totals and is an otherwise useless thread topic... I could see if it were a combo thread...

GDT + 2000 posts for a Wings win... that might make some sense, but even then, I don't like them.

We've been doing it for some years now. I think it started 2004 if not at 2002 but I know it's been a while now.

If that were the case, then if anything, it works even less... that's 1 year of success out of 6-8 years of doing these threads...

These have been around forever and a day. They are a great source of photos, have friendly banter, and don't hurt anyone.

Sometimes they work; sometimes they don't. Just like every other superstition. The main thing is that those of us who like posting in them have fun.

Not reading them is always an option. Not trying to be snotty or sassy. Just saying.

Who took a crap in your litter-box this morning? If you don't like it, don't participate. Simple as that! I particularly enjoy it, there is a lot of funny stuff that gets posted that is fun to look at/watch.
Wait, no. This is LGW, no one is allowed to have fun, my bad. In Soviet Russia "X posts to victory threads" post YOU!

Don't get me wrong, I do think it's useless also. I agree with you, posting 1000, 2000, or even 10000 won't get you to win a cup it's non sense, but I guess it's just for fun.

I don't know why you're being so cynical, if you don't agree with it don't post in them. Im sure you have your superstitions, just let us be :thumbup:

I have no problem with anybody else's superstitions.

That said, I do stay out of those threads and i've never posted in one of the "x number posts for victory" threads and probably never will.

Why? Because I think they're retarded. Just my honest opinion.

I'm pretty sure those who participate do it for fun, not because they think it means they'll win. Get over it, it's one thread, just ignore it.

I'm pretty sure I started this whole posting for the Wings to win years back so I am sorry, folks. LOL

I do think it should stop though only cause we started off with a loss so why keep doing it?
