    Question for the board...Mon night's game

    Okay, I am in a bit of a dilemma...here's the situation.

    So, my fiance and I have tickets to the game Monday night. He's a Bears fan, but will root for the Steelers as long as they're not playing the Bears. This is the first football game we've gone to where the Bears are not playing, and he wants to dress in appropriate Steelers attire to show his support for the team.

    My grandmother bought us Steelers jersey's for Christmas last year (I got Hines, he got Ben), and he is planning on wearing his to the game. But, last weekend, since the Bears were not playing, he wore his Ben jersey during the Giants game (first time he's worn it). And look what happened...Ben had one of the worst games of his career! So, I'm a little leary about letting him wear his jersey to this game...

    So, I mentioned my concerns about his negative energy affecting Ben's playing, and after he stopped laughing at me being a typical superstitious Steelers fan, he said he'd wear whatever Steelers stuff I wanted him to. So, I've got three options:

    A. He wears his Ben jersey
    B. He wears my second Hines jersey (I had one before my Grandma bought us the jersey's for Christmas, and I liked the one she sent better, so I wear it, and have a second). Though process is that my Positive vibes will outweigh his negative energy, and thereby minimize its effect.
    C. Don't let him wear a jersey at all but let him wear my zip up Steelers fleece.

    Size is not an issue, as all of my stuff is pretty big and fits him just fine, and none of it is girly, so it's all a matter of preference...

    What do you all think???

    (Yes, I know I'm crazy, and I really am not a superstitious as all of this sounds, but you can't be too careful... )

    Don't let him wear the Ben jersey. If we lose, I have to switch.

    You're not even going to get advice from anyone else before you make the decision?

    I feel special.

    Put him in the Ben Jersey!

    I did the same thing earlier this year. I always wear this one steelers t-shirt under my Ben jersey during games and forgot one time (against the Eagles, doh!). Well I forgot again when I went to the Steelers game in Cincy, and it turned out fine.

    Represent with pride and don't worry about jinxes.

    Yeah, no Ben jersey...I'd tell him to go with the fleece. I don't him wearing Hines. We can't have Hines dropping 10 passes on Monday Night.

    Look, I'm responsible for the loss to the giants because although I
    noticed that the Gold on my Steeler shirt was a slightly different tone
    than the Gold on my Steeler jammies pants (and it made me feel a bit odd);
    I wore them anyways...and look what happened!!

    I say let him wear your second Hines jersey as I agree totally with the
    good vibes coming off of you to counteract last week's bad karma.

    You can NEVER be too careful!

    Get a Heath Miller jersey. Maybe the exact opposite will happen and Arians will actually
    use Heath as the weapon he is.

    No, didn't make the decision...just eliminated one possibility (especially since it meshed with my thoughts...don't know if it's be the back-up Hines, or the fleece...but it won't be the Ben...but don't feel bad...you're still special!

    I agree. I am switching out of my black Troy jersey to something else this week.


    How about YOU wear the Ben jersey and he wears Hines.
