I didn't mean to break tradition

It's Super Bowl week, we bleed black and gold in this house, so yes, you're getting a football post. And why I got in trouble over traditions and superstitions.

The big game is next Sunday and I cannot wait! Words cannot express how excited I am! Of course that excitement will end 10 minutes before kickoff, but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.

To celebrate Super Bowl week, GG and Little Dude are having black and gold week at school. Monday was wear something from one of the city's sports teams. Tuesday was decorate your head day.

Little Dude wore a Steelers hat, while GG wore the hat I made for her.

I tried to take a picture of her modeling it off, but the flash blinded her. So you get a picture of the hat on my hand!

Today is Terrible Towel day. And this is the day that led me to trouble. Yoi!

Terrible towel

I am extremely superstitious when it comes to my sports. I wear the same thing for every football game and I have my towel every. single. game. Ever since the end of last season I have been searching for 2 Terrible Towels. I have a total of 3, but have been MIA. When I found out about towel day, I asked my mom if we could borrow hers. With the promise of returning it before the big game of course!

She reluctantly agreed, but I decided to tear apart my house one more time. Lo and behold, I found those 2 towels hiding between the sheets. Way in the back of our hall closet. I'm giddy as a kid in a candy store so of course I have to share. I posted something on Facebook thinking my friends who are also fans will be excited for me. Two more towels = two more times the luck. Or so I thought.

One of my good friends told me we would lose the game because I wouldn't do or have the same items for the bi game as I had for previous games. We Steeler fans take pride in our towels and our superstitions, but damn! I didn't expect to get yelled at!

I'm still sticking with two times more luck!

Until next time....

I think you're safe in this case. Terrible Towels were originally intended to be used only for the playoffs... It's just in the last 10 years or so that we see them at EVERY game! So they should be very happy to be out of the closet and put to good use for the Super Bowl. Heck, they'll be "fresh" after a nice long rest. Myron would never allow a jinx to come to a Steeler fan at the hands of his beloved towels.

Wave away, little sports fans!

Okay, I probably sound like a fool, as I don't watch football, but I have to ask - what do you do with the towels???
