Wild Irish Rover Posted November 17, 2010 Share Posted November 17, 2010 Does anyone else have any odd matchday traditions / superstitions like mine? When I get along to Ewood I always try to have a bag of sarsaparilla tablets from the corner shop with me, as I've noticed a correlation between me starting to suck on a sweet and Rovers scoring. I'll swear it 'helped' us score two against Wigan the other day, and it has been something I've believed in since I first started going to the Rovers in the early 1970s. The other one is I've noticed a correlation between the number and direction of Eddie Stobart lorries I pass on the M6 and the results that Rovers get. Basically Rovers goals for often seem to tally (proportionately) with the number of Stobart lorries I overtake or which pass me on the opposite carriageway. I know it sounds mad and bizarre, but I have definitely noticed these patterns which are sufficiently robust to make me continue in my odd beliefs... I just wondered if there were any other odd beliefs like this that occupy your minds up to and during Rovers games? Yeah, I know, I'm barking mad and sizzling...
