Beau Brief’s Lucky Jockstrap
Okay for a season that saw many ups and downs I was not sad to go out with that second half against the Panthers that we had. If there is a team that can take you completely by surprise it is my Seattle Seahawks. Now for the first time in three seasons we will not be in the Super Bowl, a sad but true statement.
Now generally I am not a very superstitious person. I’ve stepped on many cracks and my grandmother’s back is completely fine. That’s how it goes right? BUT I do have my lucky pair of underwear for Seahawk games. It all started four seasons ago and has continued ever since. Attempts to wear a similar pair have ended in heartbreak.
For me there are certain requirements that a lucky pair of underwear has to meet for sports teams:
- It must be a jockstrap. Sorry, but it does. Nothing says sports like straps.
- It must be in at least one of the team’s colors.
- It better be cute/hot/sexy as F.
So bam. Those three requirements in mind my lucky pair for the last four seasons has been my green Diesel jockstrap. It’s fairly simple as far as design goes but it holds up very well. The straps still give my bum a lift and that’s after lots of washes. Green, blue and grey all play parts for the Seahawks. The year that I started with this pair our big accent color was lime green and it just made sense.
Like I mentioned, attempts to switch this pair with others like it (Blue Diesel Jockstrap I’m talking about you) have not gone well. Seriously, terrible games…WHY 4th Quarter WHY?!?! So even on disappointing outcomes I know it would have been worse if I were not wearing my lucky jockstrap. So if you’re a Broncho fan or a Panthers supporter make sure to don your lucky pair this Sunday.
Who knows your orange jockstrap might just win Super Bowl 50!
I promise I’m not crazy!
