I thought about this in the thread where Jonesy said he didn't wear his lucky shirt. What are some of your superstitions before a game?

I always sleep up until about 30 minutes before gametime.
I then brush my teeth and start watching Fox Pregame.
I then start to clap once the guys run out onto the field.
I don't eat until halftime.
I won't drink anything unless we are on defense.
I always watch the games in my pajamas.
I always go to the Saints Report gameday chat.

I went to a friends house for a game and actually didn't do any of these during the Jets game and we all know how that turned out... Less than 30 points, so I vowed never to do it again.

In 07 my son, Dylan was born the day before we opened the season against the colts. We all remember how that year started. We finally got him into some Saints clothes for the fifth game and we went on that little streak. Ever since then, he has had his Saints duds on every game. My wife knows it is very important, even if I am working on Sunday, to get his Saints gear on before the game starts.

LOL, what a crazy bunch we all are it appears. I've had different routines throughout the years.. for most years it was just "wake up in time for the game, and DO NOT wear a Saints jersey, cause it always seemed bad luck..

This year, started a new routine and as you can see, because of my routine we are 5-0 :smilielol:
Wake up early every game day, 2 hours before the game, fire up the new grill I just bought for this season and start on a beer. Make burgers and dogs for everyone here, this year that has meant my two boys, their cousin and few of their friends, and a long time friend of mine who just this season started making it to my place to watch the games.. Each game I alternate between a Saints T-Shirt and my Deuce Jersey. And after every game I update my avatar.. Anyways.. this year has been a blast so far :)

I have one....

I have to watch the Cox On Demand Freezone NFL Replay of both the last Saints game and the last game of their upcoming opponent each week.

I'm worried this week because Miami didn't play a game so I couldn't watch them. I was worried the week of the Giants game too because there was no Saints footage to watch but that worked out okay obviously.

I try to distract my wife so she doesn't watch the game with me. Sounds horrible, doesn't it? She watched the Jets and Bills games with me. Last week, I had a buddy and his wife come over. The girls stayed upstairs and look at the results :D

If I am home, I have to watch the game alone--no phone, no distractions, my girl stays in the room. If I am somewhere else, I am very uncomfortable, but I watch ther game and just try to blank out all surroundings.:worthy:

Shower, ****, shave, shampoo, brush teeth, and put on saints gear. Get drunk.

Wish I could sleep the morning away. I wake up at 5am and have to wait, and wait, and...

I made scratch nachos for the 1st game this year, and they worked. So,,, I have made them
for every game, and won't stop until we lose. Lucky for me they're delicious.

I used to BBQ ribs, running outside to baste and turn them during commercials. They were
done about the time the game ended. If the Saints won, it was awesome. If they lost,
I still had good ribs to fall back on.

When I am not offshore. Get up at 6 go to Church, get the news paper. Prepare my cold drinks in the ice chest. Put on the Saints crocks and Brees jersey. Watch pregame and the head to the KC hall and start cooking and drinking. Do not stop until the game is over.

When offshore I stay on SR and wait until game time.
