I am a very superstitious person.  When I played softball I had to always have a new bag of sunflower seeds to start the game.  Didn’t matter if I had some seeds still in an old bag- I had to have a new bag.  When I was performing, even today, I go through the same little ritual before I start playing or singing.  I have to roll my neck a few times, pop all my knuckles, then I just say a little prayer.  Sometimes I do it without even noticing it.

The year the Cardinals lost to the Red Sox in the World Series I developed a new superstition.  Never again will I talk to my brother in the middle of a game.  Game is going really, really well.  My brother calls- in mid statement- Isn’t this a great—Johnny Damon hits a grand slam—huh, that sucked.

I haven’t developed any superstitions towards TTC yet, but I’m sure they will come.  Being only our third month I haven’t noticed any “patterns” except that what ever we have been doing, hasn’t been working, so who knows.

Lucky Cardinals ShirtWhich leads me to my ultimate superstition- the Cardinals T-shirt.  First game that I wore this t-shirt last year, the Cardinals won.  So of course I had to wear it again, and again, and again.  I wore it the entire post season!  And see how that turned out?  So of course I’ve got it on again today- keep that good mojo going.

To get the full wonder of this shirt I have to describe a few key points that do not come over very well photographically.

1.)  There are no armpits in this shirt- call it my own version of air conditioning/making sure the pits are shaved.

2.)  One could easily tell if I were out free-boobing as there is very little holding the shirt together around the StL logo.

3.)  The tag is holding on with a wing and a prayer

4.)  The color gray is very deceptive.  It looks like it wouldn’t be see-through but lo and behold it is!  Found that out the hard way, long story.

So there is my ultimate superstition- I hope everyone has a fabulous Friday the 13th!
