Playoff Living, Installment the Third

First #3: The Lucky Hat

Ok, so it’s not really lucky. The Sabres don’t seem to care what hat I’m wearing, if any. It is, though, the first time I have worn any apparel with the new logo, and also my first New Era cap. We all must support New Era; before long they will be the only employer in the area. Best to get in good with our future haberdasher overlords.

we love you, perfect leader, and welcome you into our lives!

I also had a lucky playoff hat that I retired after game three of the ottowa series. The sabres won the next game. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

I was never superstitious about hockey, but since I’ve started playing it for real I’ve picked up a few superstitious habits, such as parking in the same spot and wearing the same thing on game days. Also, a pregame walk has become ritual. I haven’t gotten to the point where I’m lacing up my pads the same way before every game, or counting the number of times I tap the posts before the opening face-off, but it could happen.
