Sports fans are, by nature, superstitious. For the most part, we know that what we do while watching the game has no actual bearing on the result — whether that’s wearing a specific jersey or hat, eating or drinking something specific, or sitting in the right spot on the couch.

Maybe superstitions are about routine, and feeling like we’re a part of the team. After all, our teams all wear the same uniform and go through their own pregame and in-game rituals, so why not us as well?

Apparently, Green Bay Packers fans are among the most superstitious in all of North American professional sports, according to a recent study. So that got us thinking: what are our weirdest, silliest, or favorite superstitions to observe during Packers games?

We’d love to hear yours in the comments, and we’ll get it started with a couple of relatively mild ones belonging to this writer.
