Traditions, superstitions, or just plain crazy...

Football season is here and we have been ready for a long time.  We have several rituals that we do at our house every Saturday before game time.  We are sure that if we don't do these things that we will lose the ballgame.  Can't have that on our shoulders.
For several years now we burn a candle in this topper during the game.  It has to be juicy cherry from Yankee Candle.  It doesn't matter that they  retired this particular sent several years ago.
This is the wreath that is on our kitchen door.
This wreath is on our front door and it has had a couple of revisions through the years.
One flag is up.
Our large flag is up too.  We get a new flag every season and it can't change during the season.
All our Tervis are in their place.
The hand towels are out in all the rooms.
Rugs and magnets are in their places.
Table is ready.
Sheets, comforters, and pillowcases are all ready.
Megan and Hobb's bed is ready as well.
When Coach Saban first came to the University the sports announcers kept talking about how the players were "drinking the Kool-Aide".  Well we have started to "drink the Kool-Aide" too.  It has to be cherry.
Game day consist of pancakes for breakfast.  They have to be served on these plates too.  Not fancy pancakes either just plain ole pancakes.  I tried to make red pancakes for the Arkansas game.  We won but it was close.  So no more fancy pancakes.
Last year after we found out that Coach ate Little Debbie's Oatmeal creme pies before a game we added them to our pregame rituals.  This year I bought a bag of Golden flake potato chips in memory of those old Coach Bryant Sunday afternoon shows.  Wonder if those bags are still hard to open.
Game day shirts are all ready for the three of us.
