Curious Cat: Superstitions & Pre-Game Rituals

By Elijah McDow & Ethan Shea

"Curious Cat Banner"

For this week’s Curious Cat, Elijah and Ethan are tapping into Villanova’s recent March Madness success. Our campus’s enthusiasm for the Wildcats inspired them to ask the question: “Do you do any superstitious pre-game rituals before watching basketball games?” A total of six Falvey patrons volunteered to answer this question. Here’s what they had to say:

“I actually don’t, aside from making sure I watch the game.”

— William Crites ’23

“A lucky pair of socks I haven’t washed since the tournament started.”

— Kevin Heist ’23

“The same shirt I’ve worn to other games we’ve won.”

— Lilly Kaye ’25

“I don’t, but I’m gonna start chewing the same gum during all winning games.”

— Hannah Slattery ’25

“Wearing the same jersey during every game.”

— Jane Maleady ’25

“A lucky handshake with my friends before every game.”

— Alice Korolev ’25
