Over Thanksgiving I was up in northern Washington visiting the folks and I ventured out on Black Friday to an outlet mall. By the end of the day I'd wandered all around and not really found much to buy. And then I stumbled across the Reebok store. While wandering around inside I noticed a whole assortment of jerseys. At first I came across a throwback Randall Cunningham jersey that I had to have. Given his days at UNLV it seemed appropriate even if it was an old Eagles jersey.
As I was about to pay, I noticed the sign indicating ALL NFL apparel was two for the price of one. A short search later and I came across a Patrick Willis jersey. Although I really want to get the throwback version, I was more than happy to get the jersey you see below. After all, Willis is Willis.
I own multiple 49ers jerseys, including Montana, Alex Smith and even Deion Sanders (don't ask). However, none has brought consistent good fortune on game day. For the near future, that is no longer an issue. I wore the jersey last week and the 49ers rolled out the W in Buffalo. Naturally I was going to wear it again this week. And once again the 49ers won. Suffice to say, I've got myself a new game day jersey for the foreseeable future.
I know we all have our little superstitions on game day. Sports is one area where little eccentricities are not only accepted, but expected. Was there anything you found yourself wearing or doing against the Bills that you decided to carry over to the Jets game?
