There are lots of professional athletes that are superstitious when it comes to their gameday rituals.
Former major league third baseman Wade Boggs, for instance, had the need to eat fried chicken at his locker before every game. Spurs forward Matt Bonner (author of the sandwich hunter blog on spurs.com) has to consume a sandwich for his midday meal on game day. Spurs swingman Danny Green says he tries to avoid quirky habits, but admits he likes to repeat the same routine when the Spurs have a game that evening.
"I do the same thing every game day", says the former North Carolina Tar Heel. "It's the same for many of us. We go to shootaround in the morning, get someting to eat, take a nap, eat again, then go to the arena. For me, I like to get my work done early, get some shots up, and then go stretch. The important thing is to find something that works, and stick with it."
Against Dallas on December 23rd, Green hit 7 of 8 three pointers, and scored a career high 25 points in leading the Spurs past the Mavs, but hispregame warmups and rutuals gave him no indication he was in for such a night. The affable Green added, "Sometimes during warmup you hit everything and then you get into the game and can't hit a thing. I've had other nights where I wasn't hitting during pregame, and then got hot in the game. Sometimes you just have to adjust to the atmosphere and adrenaline of the game."
It also helps to keep that game day routine.
