Re: Gameday Routines, Superstitions, habits etc...
Not big on Superstitions, but I like doing stuff for "the fun of it".
My biggie was started in 1998. My wife bought me a USC coffee mug
from a coffee shop in The Citadel Mall in Charleston. It quickly became my
favorite cup because of this bad ass looking rooster on it. .. .it wasn't
officially licensed by the school, but had a picture of the State of SC,
the Block C logo and this fighting chicken with a pissed off look.
I basically turned it into my Gameday Cup and just drank coffee out of it
on the mornings of every game. Win or lose I did it for 13 years and I
accidently broke in after the second game of the 2011 season. My son
had bought me another Gamecock Mug that was licensed by the University.
It was bigger and colored Garnet and Black, and had this glass coaster
with it. I actually never drank out of it, but had it as a display piece in
the China Cabinet for about 6 years. I (sadly) picked it up as my Gameday
cup the week after my other was broken and used it while I tried to find
another one like the one I broke online and anytime we went out to
do any shopping. .... I have yet to find another one like the first, but
for the last year +, I break out the new Gameday mug to have my coffee
from every morning. ... I have it sitting in waiting right now to kick off
the 2013 season with.
