    Default Strange Sports Habits

    Does anyone do anything before or during a game or practice that is strangeor unusual?

    I know this worded weirdly so I'll give an example:

    I'm a soccer goalkeeper and before I punt the ball in a game I always spin it between my hands once. I don't know why it's just a habit.

    Does jumproping count? =D

    Before I start jumping, I always take the rope and twirl it over my head, like a helicopter. It's a habit.

    For good luck I kiss my gf's left cheek before the soccer matches or competitions I participate in kick off.

    Watch Nomar Garciaparra during an at bat. The guy has a ritual that he goes through before each pitch. Amusing at first then it becomes annoying.

    Steve Trachsel also has a thing where he stares at the ground for like 8 hours between each pitch.

    That habit sounds a bit dangerous!

    I have a habit of straighten up the feather wings of a feather shuttlecock, then stroke its feathers as if it was a bird's feather.

    Before I shoot a basket I'll mouth some inaudible words like Karl Malone.

    Mark Jackson of the New York Knicks and Indiana Pacers used to extend his arm, as if lining up the basket in his sights, before shooting free throws.

    I believe there are some players who does that. As a matter of fact Ray Allen did the exact thing during tonight's game against Cleveland.
