RE: I’ll never understand not using school colors
Superstitions run rampant in sports and always have, especially in baseball.

Perhaps the real value in all athletic superstition and ritual is this boost of confidence and the sense of control that they provide an athlete. If you believe that doing a specific action or behavior will make you perform better, then you probably will perform better. This is the foundation of sports psychology. Many athletes use rituals such as visualization or guided imagery, to recreate a particularly successful race and experience the feelings they had then as though they are happening now. This recall and visualization prepare them both mentally and physically for competition.”

Here’s an interesting list, and they left out Serena William’s refusal to change socks during an entire tournament.

Alonso,
Mauve could work in a pinch, but Ike is spreading the word. LAVENDER is the outfit that will make us the envy of
All other teams.
Ike doesn't care about kansas state, they wear purple.
Remember it's the entire outfit that makes it unique
Black pants, Gold or Chrome Hats and white shoes with Tiger stripes.
Kansas state ain't rockin those unies

Ike loves magenta a beautiful color but Ike believes Lavender is the WOW color
However, Flamingo Pink could be a suitable substitute for Lavender

Again, you are the arguing that jersey color and superstition have some magical power over wins and losses, not me.

Practicing, training, preparing, skill level, weather, focus, coaching, and other similar factors are determine not Stammers superstitious beliefs on Memphis jersey colors...

Anyone here can give a million examples. Two entire professional sports grow beards during the playoffs. In the entire history of major league baseball, there hasn't been a single player bring up a no hitter in a dugout. At one point, the Philadelphia Flyers were 36-3-1 when Kate Smith sang God Bless America before their games. Most players put on their shoes or skates in the same order every single time. Most players have a favourite number.

You and Alonzo can go and play with your Barbies or whatever it is you do. Maybe there are no superstitions with Barbie players. The rest of us that have played sports, literally every single person who has played sports will continue knowing that superstitions and rituals play a part in preparation and confidence.

Two entire professional sports grow bears during the playoff and yet only one team wins the championship... Again, I think that sufficiently dispels the idea that beards are what lead a team to a championship... But you keep you believing that your superstition in white jerseys is why we lost to SMU. I will maintain my stance that SMU played better and our senior QB had two catastrophic turnovers, one to end each half that resulted in the loss. We have 05-deadhorse all that I care to.

Like I said, go play with your Barbies or whatever it is you do instead of playing sports.

Well in fairness, Memphis is 3-0 in games where I play with my Barbies for 32 minutes every day for the 5 days leading up to game day and then on game day playing with them for 48 minutes and most importantly, Ken must be in all white on game day or else my superstition completely falls apart and I cause the team to lose. Actually come to think of it, both the weeks we have worn white jerseys I have put my Ken doll in gray clothes. Oh sweet stammering stammers, it is not the white uniforms causing us to lose, it is me putting Ken in gray instead of white. Problem solved, only white on game days for Ken, championship here we come!

I played football for eight years and soccer on an intramural level and still play pick-up when I can, and have no part in your stupid beef.

You are absolutely right. It is SenorTiger and Tigerx3. My apologies.

I believe you think my name is Jethro. I’m Finished with the other silly stuff. People believe what they believe.

In all fairness, you and Jethro are arguing with every single person who has ever played any sport. You are telling Tiger Woods, Roger Federer, Tom Brady, Michael Jordan, Lewis Hamilton, Dale Earnhardt, Pele, Wayne Gretzky, Mike Trout, Serena Williams, Muhammad Ali, etc that they are all idiots. That they are making it up, that it is their imagination.

Try this. Edit your post and replace my name with Tiger Woods' name and replace your white example with his red shirt. Maybe then you'll see what a clown show you are. It becomes even dumber, try it.

Quote:The truth, in fact, as admitted to by the man himself, is that his religion to the red shirt stems in fact from the instructions of his mother, Kultida.

"I wear red on Sundays because my mum thinks that that's my power colour," Woods explained. "And you know you should always listen to your mom."

What sweet stammering idiots Tiger Woods and his mom are. What idiots.
