Are you superstitious about your sport?Posted on Aug 7th 2008 8:30AM by Jacki Donaldson
Are you superstitious about your sport? Do you wear a favorite pair of running shorts in road races because you think they give you an edge? Do you practice a ritual warm-up routine that if altered might mess with your whole workout? Is there something you don't do to keep your game strong -- like ban a certain fan from your cheering section? That's what Dallas Cowboys football fans want to do with a certain someone who keeps showing up: Jessica Simpson.
Simpson was called a bad luck charm for QB boyfriend Tony Romo's team last season, spurring on opposing-team fans like the ones pictured above to mock her game appearances. Now, Cowboys fans are starting to think she may be a distraction for the team this year. Could it be the long, flowing orange summer dress she wore at training camp in late July, the dress that had the whole team peeking and peering? Could it be that Romo can't focus when his girl is in the stands? Is this celebrity just too much to handle? Whatever the case, Simpson is stirring up superstition. Will it affect game play this year?
