New England Patriots fans will do whatever we believe will help our team win. Some people wear a piece of clothing, sit in a certain spot or watch with a particular group of friends. No matter what your ritual, other fans thank you for your participation. What you see in the picture above is called a smudge stick. It's a bundle of sage that you burn, the smoke "clears spaces" allowing only good vibes. I had this left over from our last smudging, which happened the week that I broke my ankle. You see, it wasn't bad enough that I had this triple break to deal with, Mark also sprained his ankle and Sabelle broke a toe! Mark's cousin, Bird, mailed us a 3-pack of smudge sticks because we obviously needed some help. I repeated the ritual before last weeks game and I am certain that it worked!
