What will you be doing to help your favorite team win the Superbowl?

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Centre Realtors

There are only two teams playing in the Superbowl but the entire country will be watching and will be cheering for their favorite team. As most of us do not have our # 1 favorite team playing we have to pick from the two teams and ofcourse we know who Denver and Seattle residents will be praying for.

I am originally from India and i remember that when the TV was first introduced in India I think in  1970 my parents were the first ones in our community who had a TV and there was Cricket match with another country . We had more than 50 people who came to watch , and how we had all these superstitions.

Now when I  go to Football games or watch on TV  I have some beliefs. I know people say they wear certain clothes or sit at the same seat when watching TV or eat certain food on game day and ofcourse many fans pray for their favorite team to win.

My husband and I went to the Olympics in Atlanta and were at a field Hockey match being played between Indian and Pakistan teams. Both teams came onto the field and said a prayer. The TV commentator said both teams are asking God to help them and wondered which team would be helped.

I am curious about the superstitions that some of active rain members have and what they will be doing on game day.

I would love to hear from Joan Cox, Will and other football fans  from others parts of the country.

I am going to Pray for good weather.

I hope to be holding a super bowl party for past clients of mine as their closing gift! I don't have any real superstitions. I am more of a college football gal.

Hello Gita,  Thanks for mentioning me in your blog.  We have a super bowl party as we did for the playoff games, the same people will all be here, we all wear bronocos shirts and all cheer on our team.  Of course we are praying for good weather also.  I am not sure about the time or day of the party because they are saying with this strom it could be anywhere from Friday to Monday.  Guess we will party all weekend.  Have a great day.

Shannon, Good idea to hold  a party for your past clients.

Gita, sure wish the Super Bowl could have been held in a location that would not be snowed out.    Sure plays havoc with those fans from Denver & Seattle travelling.

Gita- I love footballand I like both teams.  That said, I'll be rooting for Peyton Manning and the Broncos.  He is such a good role model, great football player and is funny!  Our friends who have a super bowl party know that we'll be there for the pre-bowl festivities, but we are home and in front of the tv for kick-off.  This way we can watch it.  Good post!!!

Gita, never did have any superstitions like this, but my wife, if she has a favorite, will not watch because she's afraid she would jinx the team.

My favorite team is the Patriots and as we know, they will be watching this one out. i used to like Denver but Manning is our arch enemy. I just can not route for him. I guess i will be routing on the next course of snacks.

Gita love this post - SO interesting!  Today has dawned beautiful and sunny. The almanac said it would be a terrible snowstorm so for months they were wondering would the super bowl be changed?  Should be a great game...enjoy!
