What's Your Hockey Superstition?

I don't know about anyone else, but I pick up some odd (read: moronic) superstitious habits during NHL Playoff time. Some of them are sort of sane (i.e. wearing some Canucks hat, jersey, etc.), and some of them are not-so-sane (i.e. "If I use this font type on my blog, will that have a positive or negative impact on the state of Matt Cooke's groin?"). And so on. It gets a bit nuts.Fortunately I'm not alone in my obsessive behavior. Devin, who frequently comments on this blog, sent me an entertaining accounting of his own superstitious preoccupations today:
I just figured it out, these flags were on my truck…we’ve never won the cup while these flags were on my truck. Like an idiot, I just kept putting them on my truck and we kept on not winning the cup (to say nothing of this series). So for next game, they are on my bike.Ok, revised theory, prior to the Game 7 victory, I rode my bike around town a bit (with flags proudly flying)...and we won. Yesterday (prior to the loss) I didn't ride the bike at all. So it would seem that I need to not only put the flags on the bike, but that I must ride around town the day of the game as well.Man I hope I don't have to remember anything else about that day...like what socks I was wearing, or where I rode the bike...this could become a logistical nightmare. ;)
So now we know who to blame if things go wrong. But to Devin's credit, he's got the bike set up and ready to go now. Is everyone else doing their part?
