a dirty 30 of PBR for the ND game. Just procured another.
Are you using any superstitious voodoo for tomorrow's game?
Would you like to sit on a porch tomorrow and tell Spartan fans to get off our lawn? Clint Eastwood is the only reason why I started drinking PBR.
I have a whole pregame ritual, nothing crazy, just don't like to mess with my undefeated streak at the Big House.
I've worn the same shirt, drank the same beer and eaten the same footlong from Subway for all 5 games. I don't really like the beer or sandwich that much, but pretty much have to keep it going.
+1 for taking one for the team
Beer is Rolling Rock. I like it, but I would definitely be switching it up normally.
Sandwich is turkey on monterey cheddar bread.
I'll go partake of the same on Saturday.
I'm undefeated wearing my blue jersey for home games and my white jersey for away games. The only game that I didn't have my hat was for the UMass game.
It's all about wearing the same lucky shirt. I put my 2-year old son in the same maize "Michigan" shirt that I wear all day. So far the little dude has been good luck!
I always play the current opponent of the week in NCAA and always beat them (On Heisman. Don't think that I cheat haha).
It's not necessarily superstitious but it calms my nerves quite a bit when I can have control over the outcome.
Me too, but won 21-6
They got two late touchdowns and a damn onside kick.
My traditional tailgate beverage: 40 of King Cobra and my vintage 2003 season shirt.
My superstition is to watch it on TV with the sound off... unless it becomes a blowout, then I turn the sound back up.
...the spirit of Lloyd Brady's great grandfather, who (as many of you know), played for the 1879 Michigan team:
I always microwave six blades of grass from the cemetery across the street, on high, for 2:10, and then bake them in a chicken pot pie, then eat the pie. After that, in front of a mirror I stole from a Best Western, I recite in my best Brando voice, while crying, the 2nd verse of Buster Poindexter's, "Hot Hot Hot."
See people rocking -- Hear people chanting -- Feeling hot hot hot
Keep up this spirit -- Come on let's do it -- Feeling hot hot hot
It's in the air - Celebration time
Music sweet - captivate your mind
We have this party song - This fundamental jam
So we go rum-bum-bum-bum
Yeah we rum-bum-bum-bum
Feeling hot hot hot -- Feeling hot hot hot - Oh Lord
but now I have that goddamn song in my head, and am contemplating -1ing you for that...
I dont think I shoudl tell u what i did last week before the game for good luck, but it worked so im definitely doing it again.
prepared in my house, or under my own supervision (kind of inverse Kosher?) And I will be wearing my Shoelace t, which got me through last week's nailbiter. Also something about watching at home and on my computer screen, sometimes having to send my daughter out of the room. In part I do worry (irrationally) that she and my wife could jinx the playmaking, but also my daughter gets frightened when I start screaming. Despite this she has still developed an allegiance to Michigan, so I am convinced I'm not a complete ogre in her eyes.
I also haven't shaved since the season started.
Hauling a few kegs of natty ice and a flatbed full of used couches out to cedar village just to get things started.
Have to look out for little bro....
and a wizard hat--seems to have worked with Roundtree.
The same T-shirt and windbreaker. Also, this year I've hung them on the closet door the night before. I think I'm going to keep that going.
I'll be enjoying my Friday night pre-game cigar and scotch....because I don't want to jinx the game tomorrow....yeah, that's right.....that's precisely the reason I'm doing that.....
... the suffering we true Blue fans must go through.
I had a shirt that I wore during the whole 2006 season to every game. We won all those games. I lost it before OSU. I wanted to personally apologize for how the program has struggled since. The Horror is entirely my fault, as well as our recent struggles. However, this season so far, I have a new shirt with good juju, and will be wearing it until it wears off.
Also, I have not shaved since the season began, and that will continue until a loss or a NC. The girlfriend's not a big fan, but ya know, this is Michigan football. There are always other girls.
Wear my 2010 student shirt, still unwashed, and listen to AC/DC's "For Those About To Rock" Live version right before I leave for the game.
Then, it's game time, where I yell like mad and lose my voice. That about covers it.
I'm rocking my 2010 football season beard. i won't shave it down until we lose a game.
You're not shaving this year?
That goes for both of you
On the record: If we run the table this year and win the NC, I will grow allow the beard to grow until next season, even if it goes down to my waist.
You can hold me to that.
Same underwear. Unwashed since uconn
I tried this strategy, but ended up shitting my pants three times during the nd game. Now the girlfriend makes me watch the games naked while standing on a spread of newspapers.
instead of the Blue one ever since the 2nd half of the UConn game. I'm not stopping until a loss. Touch my M flag with my right hand during kickoff (I have one hanging on my wall). Most important: NEVER cross my feet during a game while. NEVER.
and my Rowdy the Wolverine puppet , along with some Yuengling.
I hope that combo works.
I don't watch the game. Yeah, yeah. I know. But, U-M has never won a "Big Game" I watched on TV since Bo's first win in the Rose Bowl. Michigan began its come back after I stopped watching that game. Since then, every "big game" seems to have been decided by whether or not I was watching. That includes 2006 against the Buckeyes where my neighbors were over to watch the game. For the record, I was at Epcot in 1997, and didn't watch the finale against OSU.
Consequently, I will be doing everyone on this board a favor, and be doing chores, going to Mass, and having dinner with my in-laws. I figure this streak has to be penance for a miss spent youth.
around the tv, including:
UofM helmet that shouts GO BLUE or plays The Victors when you throw
Mini Christmas tree with yellow/blue M block lights and my 1997 season tickets as ornaments
Collection of big ten mini helmets (in order of play this season)
Michigan teddy bear with Michigan sweater
Autographed 1997 National Champs Football signed by Charles Woodson
Michigan Memories, Inside Bo Schembechler's Football Scrapbook
I'm having m little brother (an m fan) come watch the game with me. Little does he know he's getting smacked anytime msu scores. Plus the usual gameday gear, seat, and food.
from the IU game, untouched because I drank a bottle of wine (which amazingly enough gave me sound judgement about starting on the beer) instead, but you guys are getting me wondering maybe I should go buy me that bottle of wine again...
If you don't, and we lose, the forgiveness will not probably ever occur.
Glad to see I'm not the only one playoff-bearding it for the season. No trim & no haircut until we lose - and given that I was already a few weeks w/o either before the season began, it's getting a bit wild by now.
Im wearing a specific sweater. I wore it to the uconn and bgsu games, and just aced a history test in it. Its loaded up with mojo, baby
I sacrifice 21 virgins every Friday evening, (21 obviously symbolizing the great Desmond Howard and calling on his magic). See the below for a photo of some of this evening's lambs:
Just make sure the virgins werent from state, wouldnt want to anger AMHBG with used goods
Lol at this silly comment, there aren't any virgins at state!
I wear a white undershirt, my authentic Charles Woodson '97 jersey, khaki shorts, and sandals while partaking of whatever beer is the 2.75 special of the day at PB Bar & Grill in San Diego.
From this I will not diverge.
I ref'd a couple soccer games and rushed home to watch the game. Problem was I forgot to hang out my M flag. So every Saturday since I ref a couple games and rush home without hanging out my flag. The way I see it we should be good at least until the end of the month. Then I am going to need a bunch of you to come up to Saginaw and play a couple of soccer games on Saturday's. Don't worry I'll arrange for beer pizza and a 20ft screen to watch the game on.
Last year for the Iowa night game a couple of my buddies and I got an enormous inflatable screen to watch the game on. It was unreal. We brought all of our couches on to the front lawn and watched the game in a cold Ann Arbor night. Highly recomended. You will get a few stragglers walking down the sidewalk, but aren't games always more fun with random, overly drunk people you have never met before?
This isn't the actual company we used, I don't believe, but a similar one...might I suggest for the PSU game?
I ask Jobu to come and take the fear from my heart. I offer him cigar, rum.
You don't help me now. I say "Fuck you," Jobu, I do it myself
are you telling me jesus christ can't hit a curveball?
I was wearing the 2009 student season shirt for all of the home games. Now that we have reached 5-0 and are facing our first real test of the Big Ten season, it's time for me to break out the 2010 shirt. Today I wore the '09, tomorrow I wear the '10, thus symbolizing the transformation of the team and of course the rebirth of Denard, aka Dreadlock Jesus.
completely understands his role tomorrow. He knows that his older brother and I expect him to sit in his seat at the Big House and not watch the game (by looking down at his feet) if Michigan is not playing well on offense or defense at any point. This behavior has developed over many seasons and he employs it willingly and to great effect. Of course he would rather actually watch the game but he knows that no one individual is greater then the team, the team, the team.
at 12 midnight every Friday night before game day called "Midnight Victors." I plug my volume output cord attached to my desktop speakers to my Ipod and turn the volume up to max and chant "The Victors" as it plays out loud and booms through my living room. I started this in 2004 and 6 years later I'm still doing it. It's one of my main Michigan traditions at home.
Well, every game so far this year I have worn the same pair of jeans, shoes and jersey. Im not changing a damn thing.
Ever since the Brock Mealer shirts became available I have worn mine, along with my dark blue hat...always backwards.
I don't think I will stop wearing the shirt even if we lose, because even if our team doesn't perform well ON the field, that shirt will always remind me how well they perform OFF the field...
EDIT: wrong thread. I'm too high on the Blue stuff right now.
I will threaten to do this - http://lol-i-like-making-domains-with-hyphens-really-long.ytmnd.com/
- I always wear yellow on Fridays to work, and yellow on Saturdays. Nothing specific, I just rotate through whichever of my many yellow t-shirts are clean. I got shit from my co-workers last week for wearing yellow the day before OU-Texas, and I just shrugged.
- My significant other does not shave on Fridays and won't cut his hair. I've been bothering him for weeks about getting a haircut and it always comes down to it being Friday and him saying, "Well, I can't get a haircut now, gameday's tomorrow."
- We always get tacos after watching the game. Last year, we got them from Taco Bell and this year we wanted to try something new since there's a plethora of taco establishments here in Norman. We've decided on Taco Mayo; their 3-cheese quesadillas are magic.
being the little brother in the family it's my duty to slap myself up the head to remind myself what it is to be the little brother. take the beating and accept it then cackle with knowing glee...
Man, I gotta say I'm with the army of mgobearders, but my beard comes with a story. Last year I cut my hair and shaved/trimmed my facial hair before Michigan State. This year I unknowingly followed the same pattern except I'm determined to keep it growing until we lose. I've never been a superstitious person, but if we win today I may never shave again...
I'm normally a superstitious person, much to my father's disappointment, but I'm switching things up today (ie made biscuits instead of waffles, wearing a different shirt) and I'm telling myself it's ok because it's the first home game of the Big10 season. To add to the good luck, I re-dyed my hair blue like I did before the UConn game, but it had started to fade by week two and I am telling myself restoring the electric blue hair means I am restoring good things.
I dyed my hair in fall 2003. Seemed like it worked out.
well thats the fucking ball game, once again turnovers and shitty Defense is gonna cost us in this season.....
Edit: Matt Millen can burn in hell....
Wow, I hope these Refs get shanked on the way home or something HORRIBLE refs...
it's weird how when you practice voodoo rituals before a game they say you're just superstitious and maybe a little magical. But then if your team loses they say you're not magical at all. You're a just a plain ol' goat killer. It's really a fine line.
