10 Weirdest Pre-Game Rituals of All Time

Watching a basketball, football, or a baseball game can be a thing of beauty. When both teams are playing at a high level, it truly looks like an art.

And that's why fans turn on their TV's; to see if they can witness the magic during the game than can happen every so often.

But something else fans love, something rarely talked about, is a little pre-game ritual. Something before every game, or maybe even during half time, that a player will do every time. It makes the players seem normal—we have superstitions that we abide by and athletes, weird as the rituals may be (and, believe me, they are weird) do it because they believe they need it to compete at a high level.

Everyone generally has some sort of pre-game ritual, be it a little foot massage or a warm shower, but the strange ones, the ones that really stick out, are the ones the fans enjoy.

So, through every sport, I found what I deem to be the ten best, funniest, craziest pre-game rituals in the game.

Hope you enjoy!
