Hey, Seahawk fans: What are your weird superstitions?

If you’re one of the thousands of Seahawks fans getting ready for “Monday Night Football,” we want to hear from  you.

We’re challenging the 12th Man to reveal his or her weird rituals  and strange superstitions. So while you’re getting your game face on, shoot a few pictures or a video or just write about what you do to keep the Seahawks winning.

Check out what fans have submitted so far, and let us know what you’re doing to ensure a Seahawks victory Monday over the Saints by following this link to The Times’ Seahawks blog. A handy app lets you share video, photos or write about your odd rituals.

So far we’ve heard from a fan who buys Skittles and removes the colors of the opposing team, a 12th Man who always eats a hot dog on the steps of CenturyLink Field and another who has to use the same body wash on game days.

Can you top that?

We’ll share the best (and weirdest) rituals,  and may even include you in a video we’re working on to highlight how the 12th Man rolls. And if you’re moved to write something longer, email me your personal essay for a possible Take 2 post.

Want to be a reader contributor to The Seattle Times’ Take 2 blog?

The Times reserves the right to edit and publish any submissions online and/or in print.
