It sounds silly as all hell, but Creighton is now 4-0 in games where I’ve worn one of my “retro” Jays shirts from their salad days of 1998-2003. Warrants mentioning.
In 14 home games this year, I’ve gone to 13 — I gave away my tickets to the Iona game. (You could rip me for giving away tickets to the worst opponent on the schedule, but last year I gave up my Southern Illinois tickets, when the Salukis were ranked in the top 20 and the game was on ESPN, so think about that before you throw stones.). In those 13 games, I have worn a retro shirt like the one I am modeling above to 4 of them. The Jays are 4-0 in those games; they’re a hideous 4-5 when I do not. That’s the power of the Rodney Buford/Ryan Sears/Ben Walker/Kyle Korver days and the mojo that still exists in the memories those shirts evoke. Two Wednesdays in a row, the power of the retro shirt has propelled an overmatched CU squad over better opponents.
