Are Thunderstitions keeping OKC alive?


OKLAHOMA CITY — Thunder fans are jazzed for another victory in Game 2 Thursday night.

Turns out, many of them credit a variety of superstition-like Thunderiffic behaviors, known as Thunderstitions, for a fantastic playoff run.

Thunderstitions are no joke to many of the Thunder faithful.

A downtown Oklahoma City construction worker, best known among his co-workers as “Santa,” hasn’t trimmed his Harden-like beard since before the NBA Playoffs began.

Ada resident, Todd Essary wears the same 2010-2011 season Thunder t-shirt every game.

“I dunno. It just seems like I’ve worn it all the way through the playoffs this year and it’s worked!” Essary said.

Oklahoma City jeweler Dan Gordon dresses his infant daughter in the same outfit each night the Thunder play to ensure a Thunder victory.

It has been a fairly successful strategy for Gordon and the others.
