Did lucky chip help Komets win?

You can read it here. Thanks to Dave, Andy, Bobby and Dawn for playing along. This was one of the most fun stories I've gotten to tell in a while.

That was a neat story. Now I'm not saying I do believe in it nor am I saying I don't believe in it.

However, it comes to mind that if one wanted sure proof in its abilities to change the fate of a team for the better, then I would loan it to the Chicago Cubs for a season.

Alan--I am a "Die Hard" Cubs fan and I think they need a lot more than a Lucky Poker Chip.

I had a lucky monkey but it wasn't as lucky as the chip.

I bought a rally monkey in Detroit this year and I thought, "What the heck, I'll bring it with me to game 5 (of the Port Huron series)." After the Komets got down 2-0 I brought the monkey out of my purse and held onto it the entire 3rd period. Komets win 7-2. I had the monkey with me game 6 and held onto it the last couple of minutes of the game and Thomas scores with 2 seconds left to send the game back to Fort Wayne. I've carried it with me since then and only got it out when the K's were down. In game 2 I took the monkey out when the K's were down 2-1 went on to win 3-2.

The couple that sits next to us would rub his head for good luck, too. I wasn't too crazy. :-D

Many years ago I carried a loonie to games for good luck. As I recall it's record wasn't all that great so I switched to a twonie. I heaved it across the Coliseum parking lot after losing a playoff round. I think it was to Kzoo in first round, an upset, early '90s sometime.
