Many of us are still celebrating the Bills first win on the road this season against the Miami Dolphins. For many of us, that translates into “ok, what did I do last Sunday? I need to do the exact same thing this Sunday.” You know what I’m talking about… Game day rituals and superstitions!
A few weeks ago I ask you to share with me your game day “good luck” charms. Some of the answers were a lot of fun so I wanted to share them with you.
Wayne Williams says he has several rituals that if he doesn’t complete he feels personally responsible if the Bills lose. Here’s what Wayne writes:
– I always wear something Bills related on gameday. My son, 8 months old, does the same.
– I drink 4 cups of coffee (to symbolize our 4 AFC championships) in the morning before kickoff out of my Bills mug.
– If I drink beer DURING the game, I will always drink PBR, as PBR’s colors are similar to the Bills and their can represents our away jerseys.
– My first Facebook status, every gameday, is always “BILLIEVE”.
That’s dedication, Wayne! We thank you, and your 8 month old, for being Billievers!
Jodie McCay @KlassicKindred says: Bacon breakfast or whatever team I cheer for #Bills #Leafs #Jays loses. Eggs guarantee a loss.
Stay away from the eggs, Jodie. They’re high in cholesterol anyhow!
Circle the Wagons @BuffaloBills76 says: I have to wear the same shirt I wore the week before if it’s a win. If it’s not a win I wear a different shirt.
I have a feeling thousands of us will be wearing the same clothes we wore last week!
One of our corporate sponsors, Amherst Pizza and Ale House, says Chicken Wings on gameday are a must!
If you haven’t been to the Amherst Pizza and Ale House, I highly recommend their wings! They’re delicious (trust me, I’m a food snob) not to mention we need to support the businesses that support us.
Many of you asked me if I had any gameday rituals. Of course I do!
I’m the product of a Catholic education and we were always taught we shouldn’t pray for things like our favorite sports team to win… So, I get around that by praying that every Buffalo Bill plays to the best of their ability and that no one gets injured. If the Bills won the week before I have to wear the same thing I wore last week. And finally, I have “home” and “away” Bills earrings.
It’s never too late to share your superstitions or rituals with us! I’d love to hear more!
LET’S GO BUFFALO!
