The Shirt Change

I’m superstitious.  I blame it on playing baseball during my grade school days where superstition is just part of the game; don’t step on the chalk, don’t talk to a pitcher if he’s throwing a no-hitter, and so on.

So, on Saturday night, I was faced with a dilemma.  I had worn my black Husky shirt in the Washington wins against UCLA and Cal.  Was the shirt on a roll or had it used all the luck it could muster?  Plus, I hadn’t done laundry and the black shirt was dirty.

There was also one more thing to take into consideration: this could have been Jake Locker’s last game.  With all this in mind, I carefully decided on my Jake Locker jersey.  I hadn’t worn it on gameday since the BYU game to start the year but I had to give it another chance.  Thankfully, with that jersey on, I watched Mr. Locker throw the most important pass Husky football has seen in at least 8 years.

I don’t want to take all the credit for this victory, but I don’t know what the outcome would have been if I had worn the black shirt.  Maybe the Huskies would have won the game by more, or maybe we wouldn’t be looking forward to a bowl game right now.  All I know is I’m happy with the choice I made and now I have to focus on what I’ll be wearing on December 30th.
