Your Friday Hoodoo Thread │Our Sweetheart Has Betrayed Us

New, comments

Some bad juju going on this past week, you guys.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

For our RBR newbs, the Friday Hoodoo is a sacred event that dates back to 2007(ish). The Friday Hoodoo is our weekly attempt to curry favor with the Football Gods by admitting our moral, intellectual, and cultural shortcomings in a very public manner. In plain English, along with our Sweetheart submission, we tell embarrassing stories from our past in hope that Alabama gets a W.

How does one Hoodoo? Well..

1. Embarrassing Admission. This is the classic and most used sacrifice. We have all done some stupid things over the years and the internet is the perfect venue for spilling the beans.

2. Eat something horrible or disgusting. The gods love physical sacrifice and what better way to show your dedication then by eating something that may lead to a trip to the ER? (by reading this you absolve RBR and SBNation of any liability for medical expenses related to or caused by your hoodoo)

3. A vow to the gods that you'll do something horrific. For instance a few of my offerings from last year: Watch the twilight movies for a national title or take your wife to see Les Misérables for a win in the 2012 SEC Championship game.

Previous 2013 submissions...

Recorded myself singing a Miley Cyrus song AND ate oatmeal ...

Ate a raw Habanero pepper...

Submitted an a poop filled embarrassing admission...

We have been betrayed..

After this past week, where our Sweetheart announced her engagement (a clear slap in the face and an offense that must not be taken lightly) and the teams' rough showing against Colorado State, the football gods have spoken— we either bring the heat or suffer the consequences.

In light of Kaley's betrayal, I submit to you her replacement and our rightful Sweetheart, Yvonne Strahovski.


Bammer's Submission

Today I put the ball in the god's court. Instead of offering a sacrifice and asking for their favor in return, it is up to the gods to deliver..

If Alabama beats Ole Miss I will accompany my wife and............................get a Manicure.


My wife has been trying to get me to go with her for about 12 years now and I have refused each time. Will she finally get her wish?
