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?
You can get Vernor's in N. Dak? The last time I visited a friend who lived in Alabama I asked what she wanted me to bring her. 3 cases of Vernor's and 2 sacks of Bate's hamburgers did the trick. Before even asking me how my trip went she insisted on cracking a Vernor's first.
