The correct phrasing is, "Because it's the Cup."


lol. Unfortunately for the women who have had the (dis)pleasure of dating me, they came to realize that even during regular season play, they have to take a backseat when the game is on.

At this point it has a whole different meaning for Adam Henrique.

As a female and a Devils fan, I don't understand why this would be a problem for anyone.^_^

My 2 jerseys, everytime the devils are on a winning streak, I keep the same, when they lose I change.
I wore my Brodeur jersey for games 4,5 and 6 against the rangers and for games 1 and 2 against the kings. however, might be time tochange to my Kovy jersey hahaha

I wore my green Kovy shirt for the 3 straight wins vs the Rags. Wore it for game 1 of the Kings series, lost. Changed for game 2 to my scott stevens shirt, we went down 1-0. My mom comes home and gives me a EC champs shirt, so I change right before the 3rd pd starts, and boom we score. I had my heart ripped out again in OT so I think it might be time to wear a jersey for Monday.(I HATE wearing jerseys for playoffs unless I'm at the arena.) Might go with my Marty or my Oduya.(never lost in playoffs with it.)

Game 1 I messed up a little....

Game 2 I left out all my pre-game stuff but my actual game stuff I did...

SO - the bright side is that the next 2 games will confirm if it is indeed my superstitions or not.

Then clearly the issue is the women I've dated and not, as they would like me to believe, that I don't have my priorities straight, lol.

Absolutely. You just need to date a nice, diehard Devils fan who insists on watching all the games. :D

In past years, I don't recall having many superstitions. But this playoff year I've had a few -- maybe because they finally started winning.

For most of this playoff run, I've been rotating a few of the same T-shirts I wear while watching each game: the 2006 Atlantic Division Champs T, the 2007 Atlantic Division Champs T, a Marty Vezina Trophy winner T, a Marty's Better T, and a black Devils logo T with no name or number. I have a ton of other Devils shirts and jerseys that I could be wearing, but the couple of times I wore any of those other T's, the Devils lost the game. So now I tend to stick with the ones that I mentioned.

Also, for the first three rounds, I've had this giant stuffed dog -- the kind that you can win on the boardwalk at the Jersey Shore -- sitting on the end of the couch by the TV. It belongs to my 3-year-old son and used to always be in his bedroom, but for whatever reason, my son brought him downstairs before the playoffs started and as the Devils began winning, I started decorating it with Devils gear -- mostly my son's stuff, such as a foam Devils puckhead, a nylon Devils keychain that hangs around his neck, a foam Devils No. 1 finger, a foam Devils pitchfork, and a few others Devils stuff. That part of the couch has become a Devils corner all to itself.

The only problem is that right before the SCF started, my son insisted that the stuffed dog go back to his bedroom. Recently my son has been watching some cartoons with ghosts and monsters and stuff and so he wanted the big stuffed dog returned to his bedroom to "watch the bedroom door" while he was sleeping at night.

Well wouldn't you know it, now that that damn stuffed dog isn't on the couch, the Devs have lost the first two games in the Finals. For tomorrow night's game, I'm actually considering trying to sneak it out of my son's bedroom and bring it back downstairs and onto the same corner of the couch, LOL. I just have to try and distract my son so he doesn't notice.

:whistling:

Oh, I also have been posting old Devils fight videos, brawls and stuff, in the GDT's on gameday. It always involves an old Devils player vs. an old player from the team that they're playing that night. In Round 1, it was old Devils-Panthers fights; Round 2, Devils- Flyers fights; Round 3, Devils-Rangers fights; and of course now, Devils-Kings fights (not too many of those to be found on YouTube, but I've found enough to get us to Game 7, haha).

Game 6 against FLA I wore no boxers under my jeans and they won. I then wore the same combo for game 7 and it proved to be successful. Thinking this was only for the Panthers series, I went back to wearing boxers for game 1 against Philly. That proved to be a mistake, so I've free-balled for every Devils game since.

Besides that, I rotate my jersey selection for gameday depending how the previous game went.

I'm going to change up a few superstitions for some good luck. Shaving my playoff beard, changing from my grey and black devils hat to my SCF 1995 hat, and I'm going to change my everyday superstition of putting my right sock and shoe on first to the left.

I don't know what to do anymore. I've done almost the same things and we've lost all 3 games. I've tried switching shirt mid period, etc etc. Tomorrow I will revert back to the Flyers series and just not wear anything Devils related.d I'm keeping my jewfro and my amish beard until after the game tomorrow because I can see us losing.

So yesterday I had snuck my son's big stuffed dog out of his bedroom and put him back on the corner of the couch by the TV -- where he sat for the first three playoff rounds -- and wouldn't you know it, my wife was putting my son to bed literally minutes before the puck dropped, and he noticed the dog was missing and insisted it be brought back up to his bedroom. What was I supposed to do? My kid is only 3. I couldn't take his stuffed dog away from him and have him go to sleep scared. I had to bring the dog back up to the bedroom.

So for the third game in a row, that dog wasn't sitting where he was supposed to be, on the couch watching the Devils game. I am convinced that's why the Devs lost, yet again.
