Hockey fans are a superstitious lot. I do the bracelets, never wear red on game day unless it's Wings gear (all season), avoid the unlucky purple t-shirt on game day (all season), and have as my wallpaper a picture of the last Wing to score a goal.
I'm all set. The stuff for the bracelets is set out, Ericsson is looking very handsome on my desktop, and unlucky clothing has been banished.
I also have a stash of Vernor's in the fridge, but that's a tradition rather than a superstition.
What do you do?
Money on the board! Current total: $7
$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster. +$5 if one scores a hat trick.
+$1 if a GWG. +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.
$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.
The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)
Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik
Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert
Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan
Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd
Jordin Damien Gustav James
