Celebrity Superstitions

I found some very interesting celebrity superstitions from today:

— When Michael Jordan led the Chicago Bulls to six NBA championships, he wore his lucky college gym shorts underneath his Bulls uniform.

— Tiger Woods believes there's a lucky charm in the color red. When in 1997 the golf sensation won his first Masters tournament, guess what color he was wearing?

— Wade Boggs was known as the "Chicken Man" because he would eat poultry before every game. The baseball great also took exactly 150 ground balls during practice, entered the batting cage at exactly 5:17 p.m. and began sprinting at precisely 7:17 p.m.

— Pitcher Turk Wendell would brush his teeth between every inning.

— Hockey goalie Pelle Lindbergh would wear an old Swedish-made orange T-shirt under his equipment. Each time the shirt started to fall apart he would have someone mend it. Between periods he would only drink a Swedish beverage called Pripps that was delivered by a special team trainer.

— Hockey player Patrick Roy routinely talked to the goalposts during the game.

— Tennis player Goran Ivanisevic would always attempt to be the second person to get up from his chair on the change-over and would avoid stepping on any of the lines. When he won, he would repeat all the events of the day, going to the same restaurant, ordering the same food and talking to the same people.

— Jason Isaacs, who played Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter films, refused to attend the premiere of the fifth film, "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix." Since he was unable to make previous premieres due to scheduling conflicts, the actor skipped "Phoenix" to avoiding jinxing the box-office.

— Cameron Diaz has some treasured lucky charms and methodically knocks on wood.

— Geoffrey Rush brings a plastic Daffy Duck figure to awards shows. In 1997 the actor was nominated for his role in "Shine." He brought Daffy to the Oscars and picked up a gold statue.

— Cate Blanchett keeps her "Lord of the Rings" elf ears on her mantle for luck.

— True TV host Star Jones never puts her purse on the floor.

— Legend Eartha Kitt won't stay in a hotel room above the 8th floor.

— Robin Williams has a lucky carved ivory figurine that belonged to his father.

— Meat Loaf travels with two stuffed bears.
