Are you a superstitious Panthers fan?

As the Panthers keep winning this season, it appears to me that their fans are growing ever more superstitious. I keep hearing tales of good-luck charms. And seating arrangements that must be followed to the letter. And tailgate food that must be served in a certain order. And many other things some Carolina fans are doing every week to try to help their team make it to the Super Bowl.

If you think it’s bad karma to reveal your own personal superstition, keep it to yourself. If you don’t mind sharing it, email me in 150 words or less about what superstition you are observing at sfowler@charlotteobserver.com. If possible, attach a relevant picture.

I will publish several of the best and most unusual superstitions on an upcoming Sunday in December. All fans who have their entry published will receive a free signed copy of my book “100 Things Panthers Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die.”
