Its Only Weird if it Doesn't Work



So we're talking superstitions are we? For myself I can't say it's anything drastic or out of the ordinary outside of the fact I follow it....for Now during the regular season I rotate through my jersey collection depending on who the Habs are playing: Markov jersey for away games, Robinson jersey( for the rivalry games(except the leafs) and Gionta jersey for everything else + Leafs games.

But for the playoffs it is a completely different story and this tradition for me started in 2010 during that amazing run to the conference finals on the back of Jaroslav Halak and Mike Cammalleri's epic performances. And the one constant I had was just a simple Maurice "Rocket" Richard shersey (Shirt+Jersey) was given to me as a gift from a friend who had travelled to the Bell Centre to see the Habs clinch their playoff berth on the last day of the season and I wore it with pride during that wild ride of a postseason.

Moving onto now though I wear it under any Habs jersey I have during major games(br00nz, st00pidheads etc) and obviously during the playoffs. Flashing back to 2011 and games 7 vs the Bruins: Habs are losing late and it's do or die time, I realize I haven't been wearing my lucky shirt and upon putting said shirt on the Habs get a powerplay and P.K. Subban does this

Now if that doesn't fuel superstition I have no idea what will....but going into tonight's game against the Ottawa Senators(aka d00cheheads) The Rocket is with me...Right beneath my Brian Gionta jersey...two captains of the best franchise in hockey are going to bring me and this team the luck to win tonight. If Gionta should fail to win the game then Robinson or Markov can take over...but rest assured whatever jersey brings in the wins will not be getting washed until the Habs lose.

So tonight GO HABS GO and remember everyone superstitions are only weird if they don't work
