I’m all for superstition when it comes to sports. Anything you think will help win the game probably can - and will.
And with that comes good karma. I’m not a tree hugger, but I do enjoy the occasional cup of herbal tea and I do believe in keeping a positive energy heading into big events like the Super Bowl.
And neither the Patriots nor the Giants have done that in the hours leading up to Super Bowl XLVI.
It started last night, when the Giants’ website accidentally posted a celebratory page, congratulating themselves on a win over the Patriots in Sunday’s Super Bowl – 24 hours before the game even started.
Then in the early hours of Super Sunday, news spread that New England had cut receiver Tiquan Underwood the night before the Big Game to make room for defensive lineman Alex Silvestro from the practice squad.
You may or may not buy into the case for bad karma, but which team has angered the football gods more with their moves – the Giants' premature celebration or the Pats' cutthroat cut?
