Superstition is everywhere in sports. Stories of players showering in their uniforms, wearing one pair of socks for a season, or listening to the same song before each game circulate around every sport.
For every athlete that eats chicken before each match, there are five fans with their own superstitions. Some people have lucky jerseys. Others walk outside if their favorite team is losing. Superstition and lucky charms flow through players and fans alike.
One of the most well-known good luck charms in sports is the rally cap. Rally caps have no defined shape, form, size, or color. Any normal hat can become a rally cap if things get tight. There may not be a specific style, but you know one when you see it. Here’s a gallery of rally caps of all different iterations.
