every single one of us should go out and get one of these chairs... no joke
I'm incredibly superstitious, and I know how ridiculous it is.
For Christmas my sophomore year of college (12/2009 or thereabouts) I got a Devils-themed fold-up chair (one of these bad boys) and I never really used it until the second half of that awful J-Mac season when the team went on that ridiculous run. I swear, every time I sat in it during the games they'd win (I'm not exaggerating, they won at least 90% of the games where I'd bust out that ridiculous looking chair). I definitely associated luck with that chair from that point forward. They obviously didn't make it, so I retired the chair to my basement, thinking that it had run out of its juju.
...until the 2012 playoffs. Going into OT in game 6, I suddenly remembered the chair and thought "hey, why the hell not". I drove home from Rutgers with the sole purpose of getting that damn chair (only about 30 minutes, but still..see the insanity?). They obviously won, so I kept using it for the rest of that run. I watched game one of the Flyers series at a bar, big mistake obviously - watched the rest of that one in the seat and I was pretty sure something freaky was going on. One other particularly stupid example was..I think was game 4 or 5 of the SC finals (the game where Parise scored, I remember that much) I was visiting a friend's beach house in Avalon. The first thing I did when I got there was plant that stupid chair in front of the TV. They won, so clearly it was WORTH IT but I still get ribbed for doing that.
In summary, yeah I'm a little crazy. But that chair's back in my basement regenerating it's lucky juju for the next time the Devils make the playoffs, I can assure you guys of that
