Superstitions and commemorations

It’s hard to understand why but since forever there’s been a strong link between sports and superstitions. People who don’t have them dismiss them as absolute madness, but for the people who believe in them they hold the key to their team’s fortunes, basically the difference between life and death.

Superstitions in sports affect players, fans and even match officials. According to the player profiles on sharksrugby.co.za Brad Barritt eats sushi the night before a game, Jacques Botes always puts on the left boot first and John Smit wears black underpants. We all have friends who make sure they perform certain rituals like dressing in a certain order, sitting in the same spot for the entire game and those who regard old clothing items as their lucky charms.

I don’t have any strong superstitions but my pre-match ritual does often include playing my special “psyche-me-up” CD, oh and if things get really tense I cross the fingers on my left hand when we defend and on my right hand when we attack. Whether or not these strange beliefs have any bearing on the outcome of the game is debatable but if they make the players and fans feel more relaxed or confident before and during a crucial game then perhaps they do achieve their purpose, albeit indirectly.

Another phenomenon that non-sport followers fail to understand is the commemoration of a certain sporting event. This usually happens as a result of a bet or dare but sometimes it also occurs voluntarily. One that springs to mind is the pact made by the Romanian soccer team to dye their hair bright yellow if they made it through to the second round of the 1998 World Cup. They did qualify and they kept their word by showing up with yellow hair in their first knockout game, which also happened to be their last of the tournament.

With beer and other “influential fluids” flowing before the match on Saturday, a lot of people will find themselves agreeing to weird bets and sure enough fifty percent of them will regret it after the game. I still have a clear picture of a certain grumpy Blue Bulls fan who had to take a picture in a Sharks jersey after the Bulls lost to the Sharks in a Currie Cup game last year. I’m pretty sure that I’ce and the rest of the “old bloggers” still have that picture as well.

I haven’t made any bets yet but if the Sharks get this one I’m seriously considering honouring them with a tattoo. Watch this space!

So let’s hear from everybody…any weird superstitions or bets out there???

  • I bought a new Sharks jersey 2 days before the Super 14 final last year and wore it the first time for the Final and as much as I would like the current jersey I just can’t get myself to do that again.

    Wasn’t there a bet a few years ago where one guy had to push his mate down the street in a wheelbarrow because his team lost?

  • Hi,everyone, haven’t posted in a while. But I’ve got no superstitions, I just can’t wait for the game. I’m so positive that we will win and like KSA Shark said (comment 7), my nerves is calm and I’ve got no doubts.

    Comment 2 – I believe there was a Bull supporter involved in that bet as well.

  • @Comment 14 : Me too, I can’t wait for Saturday. Would have loved to be there but may be next time. I can’t believe Milissa is coming to SA for the game. It shows you how loyal Sharks Supporter are. My hubby and one of my girls are Lions but they are behind the Sharks 110%. In school they have to make flag today of the team they supports and she told me “Mommy I’m making a Sharks flag”. So I’m a proud Sharks mommy.

  • Here are some common superstitions in the world (American world) of sports.

    Baseball

    Spitting into your hand before picking up the bat is said to bring good luck.

    A wad of gum stuck on a player’s hat brings good luck.

    It is bad luck if a dog walks across the diamond before the first pitch.

    Some players believe it is good luck to step on one of the bases before running off the field at the end of an inning.

    It is bad luck to touch the baselines while running off and onto the field between innings.

    Lending a bat to a fellow player is a serious jinx.

    Some players actually sleep with their bat to break out of a hitting slump or stay in a groove.

    If a pitcher is throwing a perfect game or a no-hitter, never speak of it while it’s going on.

  • Bowling

    To continue a winning streak, wear the same clothes.

    The number 300, a perfect score, on your license plate will increase your score.

    Carry charms on your bowling bag, in your pockets, or around your neck for good luck.

    Hey Nita!!

    Long Time No see.

    I calm my nerves by sprouting off about how bad the Bulls team is. I must be dead calm by now. :wink:

  • Fishing

    Fish may not bite if a barefoot woman passes you on the way to the dock.

    Spit on your bait before casting your rod to make fish bite.

    Throw back your first catch for good luck.

    It is bad luck to change rods while fishing.

    Don’t tell anyone how many fish you’ve caught until you’re done or you won’t catch another.

  • Comment 18: I always pop around and read what’s going on just didn’t have much to say. But suddenly this week I miss the Sharks Blog like crazy. Especially after Kobus Wiese’s show on Supersport(think its Superrugby) but any who. The things that people say when they phone in got me so worked up that I just felt like ranting like a mad woman.

    I’m not 100% sure what happened. It sounds like his agent made it a bidding war and then the Lions decided to opt out, but our union doesn’t want to say too much, so who knows what really happened.

    We needed him.

    Dewald Pretorius, the center from the Valke who had an awesome start to the season is also going to Griquas.

    Davon Raubenheimer, a loosie from SWD has signed for them.

    Cecil-John Kemp, a 1.98 m lock from Boland has signed. I Think they bought the wrong lock from Boland, they should have bought Mockford.

    Yeah that is a good one. Get him one of those Shark stickers with the resin layer that do not fade. Mine has not faded one iota in more than a year in THIS sun.

  • It’s a pity you don’t work with him.

    We had a guy take a bet and the loser had to have the OTHER team’s team photo up on the wall by his desk for the whole season.

  • That roof painting idea came from an actual bet between some rugby supporters in Ermelo. One a Natal supporter the other a Northern Transavaaler (I think). It was one of the years that Natal won.
    Anybody here facebook friends with Henno Mentz – maybe he remembers it and can fill in the gaps.

    For a year every guy who walks into his office will ask. “Oh are you a Sharks supporter?” and he will have to explain the pain over and over and over and over for a year.

    Remeber our previous bets? 1st one he had to go to work in Sharks kit , had to have a picture taken which was posted on Sharks Rugby Site

    2nd bet he has to wear FUL Sharks kit at LOFTUS between a Sharks BB game…he still needs to honour that one, but I know he will eventually..

    Now for the year with a Sharks stikcer on his car IN PRETORIA… :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
