Illinois Team Fanbase Among the Top Five Most Superstitious in Sports
What happens when you have a losing team that finally wins a game? Do you start an all-new superstition?
I know it might come as a shock to you, but the Chicago Bears have a modest one-game winning streak.
So whatever you did last night while watching the game you should probably do it again because who knows, you might be the reason why the team won.
That may sound crazy but still something I believe to be very possible for Bears fans considering they were just named in the top five among all sports fanbases as being the most superstitious.
Casino.org cobbled together a list and called it The Most Superstitious Fan Bases Across Major Professional Sports Leagues:
Completing the top five list, the Chicago Bears fan base takes fifth place, representing the superstitious side of the NFL. Some of their favorite rituals include wearing a certain color or a lucky piece of clothing and listening to a lucky song.
I can tell you that Bears fans are indeed superstitious. My Dad would attempt to run back whatever worked when the beloved would win and change it all if they lost.
He'd turn the TV off during crucial kicks and plays. He'd also kick people out of the room if they started losing upon that person's arrival.
You name it, my Dad has probably done it. The thing is, has it worked? Have any of my Father's superstitious behaviors paid off?
One NFL title in the last 50 years tells me it might be time to start believing in something else because whatever it is, it isn't working.
