When you believe in things that you don’t understand, Then you suffer, Superstition ain’t the way – Superstition by Stevie Wonder
If you’re a regular here, you know … in general, Older Eyes hates commercials. Older Eyes especially hates beer commercials. But I am a reasonable man and, every once is a while, when a blind squirrel finds a nut, I’m willing to acknowledge it. I love the current Bud Light commercials featuring the peculiar little superstitions of sports fans. This is my favorite … the expression on the face of the skeptic when the field goal is good is priceless.
These commercials work because most sports fans really do have superstitions they have believe will help their team win. So here it is, Top Sites Tuesday #186 where we offer Two Thoughts on Tuesday and and I’m thinking … for One … about my little sports superstitions. I’ve been known to wear the same USC shirt for every football game when the Trojans are on a winning streak. I wear my UConn National Championship hat when March Madness rolls around and my lucky Lakers hat during the NBA finals. In the name of propriety, I won’t discuss my lucky underwear, but all have done their job, as the championship banners show. This year, however, every time I watch one of my teams, they lose. My USC Trojans were ranked number one preseason, only to finish 7-7. The Lakers are in disarray. Last week, I watched my last best hope, the #1 University of Connecticut Women’s Basketball team for the first time this year and they lost their first game. Now I’m afraid I’m a jinx. So, here’s Thought Number Two. I’m renting myself out for $100 a game plus travel expenses. You provide the beer, the pizza, a few wings and the large screen TV. I’ll watch your favorite team play and root for their opponent. It’s a sure thing.
