        This is a great thread. And it good to know we got baseball fans , now the only thing we need to know is rdgrnrs favorite totem.

        My totem is the turtle. Don't ask me how I know, I just know. I save dozens of them every year that are trying to cross roads around here during their migrations. Almost got myself kilt a couple times in the process. Mostly Eastern Box Turtles. My woods and ridges are loaded with them. There's snappers around here too (huge ones) and I get them across the road too even though they claw me and try to bite my fingers off.

        I've got a little medicine bag I carry with little mementos (coins, trinkets, charms etc.) given to me by loved ones. I have it in my pocket when I get my tickets and I keep it on top of my tickets on my desk. Just today I took Coin Toss' idea and put a number 8 in there and in my play slip wallets.

        It just occurred to me that I don't have a turtle in my medicine bag. So that's the problem!

        I gotta find a litte bitty turtle for my medicine bag now.

          If you find a penny face up tape it over your front door,supposed to bring wealth and prosperity. if you find one face down turn it over and leave it for the next person.

          This may only appeal to Catholics but one of my ex-wives grandmothers (rest her soul) said to keep an Infant of Prague statue in the house facing the front door and money would always come to you (And she was loaded).

              And a relative, not the hairy troll one...buried St Francis in the backyard...no house selling involved..so I assume for good luck.  He unearthed

              himself and from the day he was buried until the day he dug (himself?) out..no financial gain was realized.

                Infant Prague Statue?

                Yes, I think it's Jesus as a child. He has a cape on and a crown. The Infant of Prague. I'm guessing it probably has Czech origins.

                  Never heard of that one. I know it's St Joseph for selling a house though. That same grandmother told me to bury one when I was having trouble selling a house and I'm not saying anything one way or the other but the house sold in short order right after I did that!

                          Okay Sully here goes, maybee we can sell the print out of this

                          and really clock some dollars here, rdrngr will have to get the larger cut since it is his tread and we can all go and do other things; but not until we find replacements so Todd won't go out of business I like him. here goes:

                          1. get HuckeyPuck with Steve Yzermans's picture on it, put ticket under it and include maggalio Ordonez bobblehead. 

                          2. Wear Color Purple on a Thursday (or see whatday is the users particular lucky day) and on that day wear bracelet with lucky gemstone of the user's birth sign, keep 8 of your lucky gemstones and amulets in your left pockets (not right pocket, left pocket) buy ticket on the day of your life path numbers is ( I have to find out mine) and it has to fall on the day that is your lucky day   

                          3) get a winning Poem say: " Money money come to mefor I deserve prosperity, (we all do, I think )

                          4) Buy Tabloid the Sun, cut out lucky pyramid place it over tickes ( you are going to need a big pyramid depending on the amount of tickets) and or put leprechuan charm numer "8' over play slip wallet.  5) Find store that has stuffed animals; unicorn or elephan and rub ticketon it  or them

                          forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...
