Getting Lucky

So I've been wondering what people think about lucky items, be it clothing, chairs, or rabbit feet. As far as Mizzou goes I have my lucky basketball jersey which I bust out only for very special occasions since the Big 12 Championship Game in 2009. I've worn it for that game, the Memphis Sweet 16 Game, then it took a two-year hiatus after we lost to Richmond before busting it out for the Illinois game this year, since then I've worn it for the games @Baylor, @ISU and @Texas, plus the kU and Texas games at home.

My personal belief is that you cannot utilize your lucky items for every game or the luck will wear off. Also, once the lucky item experiences failure it must take a hiatus for a while or for good. Luck can only carry someone so far therefore utilizing your items for games that are hopeless OR high risk but not world ending is foolish. For this reason I will not utilize the jersey for the game at kansas because the NCAA tournament is much more important.

What are your lucky items, and what rules do you have for them?
