That is too funny!

I just watch the game all alone. Once in awhile I let me son watch it with me until he starts asking too many questions. :lol:

I watch alone. During the games I pace around the room and if the vikes are losing I switch TV's or jerseys/ apparell. Good thing I have satellite on all TV's in the house!

I have one of those Cris Carter headliner figures...you know, those little figures with the huge heads lol. That's been my good luck charm ever since I got it. Also got into the habit of burning incense for each game.

I got a 14K gold chain with a 14K gold Ragnar Vikings charm for Christmas when I was 17. I wear it about everyday. I forgot it yesterday, and I felt naked. I never once forgot it for gameday, though.

I've had some strange superstitions/rituals in the past. I've posted them on different threads before so I won't go into detail now. Except for last season in the playoffs. My, jackbutt friend Erik, took my Vikings hat (we were at BW-3's watching the game against GB) and the next play the Vikings scored, so I let him wear the hat the rest of the game. He also wore it for the Eagles game, which didn't work too well.

I watch the game alone usually cuz my gf is the devil when it comes to the games. It seems like everytime she comes into the room during a game something bad happens!! It's that stupid packer karma that she has!! I'm more superstitious than having a good luck charm!

haha...i notice that happens with my woman too sometimes...it usually happens when she is getting sick of me sitting for 2 hours and she starts requesting more attention than i am willing to give. maybe that is bad luck--me being distracted is badluck? holy crap...shite, i forgot what i was talking about..i got distracted.

I usually prefer the game alone, but I like to watch it with my son, when he's into the game. Which is somewhat rare, considering he's not quite 3. This season, I'm going to bring my bedroom TV into the living room, so he can watch Baby Einstein or Buzz Lightyear, while I watch the game. Of course his volume will be lower.

I may not want him in the same room, though, for a couple of the games (mainly the Packers and at the Bears), because I might get a little emotional and want to throw or slam stuff (luckily, I have some soft stuff, a mini vikings plush football,etc.)

But, I still don't want him to see me lose my temper.

I record the games and watch the recorded version most of the time. During game time I go into seclusion (no phone calls, no visits to the store, no computer, no radio, nothing that will potentially tell me what happened in the game). That's easier to do now that I live in the south.

For the pregame ritual I usually deflate the tires on my car and breath that air for a half hour before kickoff. This is followed by filling any gopher or mole holes in my yard with gasoline and torching them right before the opening kickoff. During the game I typically will shoot buckshot into the picture window if the opposiing team scores first. At half-time I will usually go outside and put out the fires from the gopher/rodent holes and reinflate the tires of my vehicle. The second half usually entails getting dressed in full armor and destroying things with a baseball bat, depending on how the game is going. My post-game ritual consists of repairing/replacing the various items around the house and trying to explain to my neighbors, wife, and kids that this was all normal.

The whole ritual was started because I lost my lucky purple rabbit's foot back in 1971.

God I love football. Let the games begin.

Same rule for me. No answering the phone unless it is a commercial. And one more superstition. It is a new one from last year. In both 34-31's against the packers and in a bout half of the games we lost I ate Quesadilla's for lunch. No more eating quesadilla's an game day. :???:

when I was little I had a really big purple colored mineral rock that I thought brought the Vikings luck. I still have it, just in case it is good luck. Also, during the '98 season, I thought that my plush Vikings helmet w/ braids were good luck if placed on top of the tv during the game. The one time I didn't do it was the Tampa game that we lost.

As for me, a superstition I had started back during the '98 season. I wouldn't shave my face on game days. Wouldn't you know it the two times I did (yep you guessed it) the Tampa Bay game and the Conference Championship game against the Falcons. At that point in the season I figured I was being silly with superstitions and if they Vikes were going to win they were going to win. How wrong I was! Since I've kept the beard I'll have to come up with a new one. Sorry guys for costing us the SB! LOL

So, do good luck charms work in the preseason?
