you are out of your mind....lol</P>


but thank you....clearly this is why the Giants won SB 46...:)</P>


BTW....I have a real NFL Hampton Jersey fromwhen he was playingand I met him at the Atlanta playoff game this season. I happen to be wearing the jersey and he signed the back for me. Very cool. I bring it up because I used to think the it was bad luck and didnt wear it for years. Last season I wore it here and there and they won 10 games. This season I wore a more often. Lucky I was wearing when I actually met Rodney...</P>


Also now you have to do all that same **** next year too you know.....[;)]</P>

A great list... great habits... great superstitions,...great paranoia... great fun.
For me, just 1... the same shirt since the Jets game.
And Jupiter aligns with Mars.
Any way you slice it, you did everything perfect.

Giants hat. Jacobs Jersey. Must sit in either the middle seat in the sofa or sit on the arm rest. During a big down, i need to sit in the middle seat with my hands on my chin.

Dress 2 year old son in Giants hoodie and Giants sweat pats.

Put a baby boppy around my waist (yes even with no baby on it).

and did it from the falcons game on everything remained the same.

i wore the eli jersey every game until the 4th game in a row we had lost, my pops was like maybe its bad luck...

we all got our lucky habits

LOL!!!

I love this post. This man is a true freak'n fan, and there is no doubt that he is the 12th man all by himself.

I have always tended to watch the games by myself, so no one messes with my good mojo... but I have to say that this years it was different. I helped my parents buy a new home, and have been staying with them for the last few months before taking off on my nomadic professional lifestyle. I watch the game with my dad (a Lions/Bills fan) and my brother (a diehard 49ers fan)... and they were being a bit of a pain during the time the Giants trailed, but non of them had watched the Giants perform their 4th quarter magic this season, so I knew that they would be silenced by Eli and the gang. Sooo sweet :)

I have to say that Miked1958 is a great fan. I hope that his family enjoyed the game as much as he did.

Go Blue!

AND I made sloppy joes with chips, put out Eli's autograph and the SB XLI t-shirt he signed, put up my Champions tshirt and put this stone by Eli's sig that reads on one side "I sought the Lord and he answered me, the other side "He delivered me from all my fears". The stone gets turned at halftime.

damn this makes me feel terrible! Everytime i wore a giants shirt on Sunday they lost! So i stopped wearing any gear on Sundays!

My old man got me a conference championship hat and that sat on the coffee table for 2 weeks!

Now I can proudly wear my gearz!

02-07-2012, 11:40 PM
I rocked all Giants gear game day back in 2000

since then, every BIG game, playoff and Super Bowl, I wear no colors other than a jacket and hat/ cap

42- they won
46- they won

(my wife stays dipped in Big Blue blue though...)

so maybe it's her ?

im always scared to wear giants gear on gameday.. i feel like it brings bad luck for some stupid reason. I just wear normal clothes usually... rock the **** out of my giants gear on mondays tho.
i had to sit in the same spot on the couch and had my buddy sit on the other couch in the same spot every game. ALso try crossing my fingers in weird positions and sometimes it works ill keep them that way untill we have a bad play... cant be good for my dexterity.
I also threw my drinking glass towards my kitchen after a ****ty play in the super bowl and shattered the door of my oven.. So worth it

LOL! #3 is just cruel! Eagles fans have to be in complete misery.... so much for their dream team. At least, my father is a huge baseball fan, and my brother supports a team that has found new life with their new coach. San Francisco was by far the toughest team we played this year... and after the NFC championship game, my brother was ALL IN with the Gmen... my dad was the one causing trouble... but he is a huge Michigan fan, so when he saw that Manningham plays for the Gmen, he just sat and watched talking about how good #82 (#86 at UofM) was as a wolverine.

Anyhow, torturing Eagles fans is always great. This year I realized that I really really really dislike the Eagles, and that I love beating the Jets.

Go Blue!

Actually, my wife is totally responsible for the Gmen winning the Super Bowl. She ordered 3 different Giants t-shirts from the NFL website for our 2 sons and me to wear on game days. She gave them to us on the day of the Jets game and we wore them faithfully that day and every game after that. We also sat in the same spots on sofas in different rooms! Thanks JoAnn for "making it happen!"

Ok here's mine: After the Redskins game I threw my 80's vintage Giants troll against the wall and he fell behind the stand up mirror.Poor little guy. I forgot about him and we won the next game.

After that I was afraid to rescue him so he stayed there till after the game Sunday night.

He's back in his place of honor now (the curio cabinet).

I had quite a few in terms of clothes & rituals during the games, but I'll mention just this one. I have a copy of the sports page of our local paper sitting on a chair in the front hall. It carries the headline "Repeating History?" It's from the week prior to the Atlanta game. At some point after the Wild Card round win, I decided I "had to" leave it there. LOL

Thats the funny part. we didnt.. and there is like 3-4 other rooms she can get to from living room. It was strange that during the games she was always in the room or on that little Stool for the whole game and with as much noise as we make its no wonder she didnt run and hide.</P>


by the way i noticed that the two tags she wears put on by vet are giants colors. One all red and one all blue. coincedence because i was transferred down here (on Alabamas Gulf Coast near Florida State line) 15yrs ago and there are hardly any giants fans. Mostly Saints, Atlanta, Jags, Tampa, ever Dallas. BUT no GMEN fans to speak of. </P>

I only have one really big one...the lucky hat.

Anyone who was at the NFC Championship game vs. the Redskins during the 1986 season will remember how freezing cold and unbelievably windy it was that day. My attire for the game consisted of heavy-duty, cold weather gear. While we were tailgating one of our crew pointed out that I wasn't wearing any "Giants" stuff. This worried me a little so when a guy came around selling Giants hats, I bought one (5 bucks). It was red and blue, with a red pom-pom on top, and a round patch on the front that had a silhouette of the Giants helmet and the word "GIANTS" written below.

After the game I forgot about the hat, but prior to the Super Bowl XXV playoffs I remembered it had been good luck during the championship game so I wore it during each of the playoff games and during the Super Bowl.

The legend of the hat was solidified during the 2000 season when, upon my arrival at a Super Bowl party I realized I had forgotten it This gave me a really bad feeling but I convinced myself not to go back home to get it because it was just a silly superstition.

I don't wear it all the time though, only when I get a gut feeling before a big game that says, "wear the hat" This year it was the second Dallas game, the Green Bay and San Fran games, and the Super Bowl.

The Giants have never lost a game when I wore the hat.

We as fans suit up each game putting on what we feel gives our team the best shot at winning.

And that includes sitting in your favorite Giants spot a certain way and a number of other Rituals us fans go through...

Thanks GMen for makin this one season to remember for a long long time

Why?

Anyway, my rituals change each season. They weren't all that intricate this year.

I had to wear the same shirt for the game, but couldn't wear it all day. For example, on Super Bowl Sunday, I changed into it around 5pm. My oldest son could not wear any NYG gear.

For me it was th opposite. I started DVRing from Jets game on...

So you see the giants problem the whole time wasnt injuries and a tough second half schedule. Nope. All that had to happen was for you and I to switch our DVRing habits. So that's It!! Two guys single handedly responsible for the giants losing streak and run to super bowl. So there you have it!!! Glad we straightened that out before it got to late

We got it from a friend of a friend in NC. Neither of us knew we were both Gmen fans till my son got to his house and saw all the gmen gear and stuff. He was so pumped to meet another gmen fan he gave my son the jersey. He was a huge guy, a Samoan I think. Anyway it had some wing sauce stains he said he couldn't get out. I was going to wash it to teamed get them out but the giants started winning and I couldn't wash it

Had to wear snap back Giants hat
Had to wear shorts and slippers (i don't watch the games at home)
Wouldn't change stock background on new phone
Have to sit in the middle of the couch
Get up and walk into a certain room during halftime
Refuse to drink during the games
No social networking during games

I thought the it was hysterical that the 2 Giants that were sent to get the Ham for the ST player with the biggest Hit would leave the team practice on Fridays around the same time for their trek to the Supermarket. They had to take the same route as the first time they went prior to the Jets win and always had to make the same wrong turn they made on their original run. They would also sit and wait in the parking lot of the Supermarket for a Minivan to come by before they would pull out. That was the type of vechicle that cut them off when they went their first time.</P>


also they once missed one of the turns and had to go all the way back to the Stadium to start over to make sure they didnt screw something up for the team</P>


or the one about Deihl who had to talk to his friend 4yr old son back in 07 prior to each game including the playoffs and how frantic he was when he couldnt get a hold of the father who was on a flight enroute to the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Al. He said when he landed there was ten voice mails from David. The first few were calm and then they got more and more frantic as the giants were in locker room preparing to play agianst the packers in NFCCG...</P>
