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.
Brian Black tweeted:
@amanchor I don't wear my Thunder shirt. We lose every time I wear it ... so I've stopped wearing it.

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.

@amanchor My group if friends must watch the games outside, regardless of weather. Also, a giant bag of peanut butter M&M's must be present.
