I will still say "knock on wood"  on occasion, although I know it's ridiculous.

When I watch a sport, if it's "my" team(and only if it's "my" team), I have always felt that I somehow affect the way the team plays just by watching it....usually in a negative way.

Do you cheer them on, essentially hoping they will listen to you through the TV? I do this and i cant help it, even tho on a logical level, I know its dumb.

I do....but what I usually think, is that they start performing badly when I start watching....I even sometimes change the channel hoping they will start doing better....it's silly.

rickymooston I like your answer because I find "magic thinking" natural too October 01, 2011, 09:10:23 AM
