It's amazing what happens when a basketball team wins 5 games in a row. The Wildcats have won 5 straight conference games and it seems like everyone is afraid to do anything different. We have one player on the team that accidentally wore her basketball shorts backwards during the first game of this streak so she has worn them backwards for every game since. The team started a new "yell" after each practice at the beginning of this streak and have continued that yell ever since. Shawna has worn the same socks for each game during the streak and I have worn the same clothes (lucky jeans and an ACU sweater) for every game - except one - and that's because we played in Kingsville and it was 85 degrees outside.

I've even started an unplanned streak of running over an animal on each road trip during the streak. I hit a cat in Kingsville and a roadrunner in Portales!

Do you have any lucky superstitions?
