Like most sports, baseball has its superstitions and curses. I am not a superstitious person. When Aaron Rodgers was one of the candidates to grace the Madden cover, I was willing to vote him up there. Of course, half of Packer nation was trembling in their boots at the thought of cursing the Super Bowl Champ team. (No worries for them, he was beaten out by Peyton Hillis.)
I don’t feel the need to wear my Rodgers jersey for every game. I wear my Packers gear on game day because I am cheering on my team, not because I think it will help them win.
Naturally, when I began to follow the Twins, I had no superstitions or curses to get me strung up and paranoid about the wins. I was ready to see them dominate the AL Central.
