    Does anyone have or has had some strange superstitions during their athletic careers (high school, college, whatever)?

    I played some college baseball in North Dakota and now I coach a high school team. I still cannot step on a foul line. I don't know why I can't, I just don't...it's probably foul-line-a-phobia or something but I think of it as being overly superstitious.

    I know Wade Boggs used to eat fried chicken before every game..that was a lot of freakin' chicken.


    Anyone else?

    I had two. I was a hurdler in track and would always warm up by stretching on the second hurdle. Never the first or any other.

    As a punter in HS and college I always counted our kicking team on the field on my fingers...starting on the left hand and then right hand. For some reason I was always a finger short.

    Kinda hard to do that in uniform!!! The one time I had enough fingers was almost a disaster. I called a time out just before the snap, the coach went ballistic, then realized I was pretty smart for a punter. I saw the left side out man on defense licking his chops and thought "no way am I going to be road kill."

    Let's just say I stood back there 15 yards behind the center and hoped like hell nobody was fast enough to get to me before I kicked the ball.
