    From another thread, what is the proper disposal method for cursed CU gear?

    I have two flags from a few years back. Everytime I would put one specific flag up CU ends up with a loss.

    This flag has lost to CSU, Montana State, and many others. I don't use it anymore.

    I also have around a half dozen hats, t-shirts and other items that can't be worn.

    First of all...

    You son-of-a-bitch! Why did you fly the flag so many times? It loses once, it's gone. There's no excuse for taking follow-on chances!

    I'm sorry, I was too hard on you...we've all been there. We like the article of clothing, or we're not sure it's actually contributing to the losses...etc...

    I loved the **** nebraska T-shirt I wore to the 92 debacle in lincoln. I apologize to Buff fans everywhere--as that shirt certainly contributed to our dismal record against the huskers for the remainder of the nineties. I held on to it for too long. I eventually shredded it with scissors and then burned the remnants.

    Any method of violent destruction is appropriate. I burned my cursed Fiesta Bowl hat in a the patio-warmer in our back yard. Deconstructing the "evil" within the cursed object involves active participation in the process. It should additionally generate a good story.

    A shotgun blast? Cool, tell the story on Allbuffs. Lawnmower? Why not. The important thing, again, is the active participation in the destruction.

    Is the item itself cursed? Or is the curse based upon YOU + ITEM? Perhaps we need a fan gear exchange?

    It's always the gear. If the person attended CU than there could be nothing wrong with them at all.

    Maybe the issue was the Jashon Syke genre. I got my #7 in 2000 and I swear it is cursed. Fresno State, Fiesta Bowl and Montana State. Haven't worn or touched it since.

    There are entirely too many day laborers out there wearing UT or North Carolina or Chicago Bulls stuff.

    Next time you spot a work crew in the neighborhood, I say a donation is in order.
