How Superstitions Get Started

Yesterday's dinner menu was beef tenderloin, roasted red potatoes with feta cheese, and asparagus. Andy objected when he heard about this.

"No asparagus!" he demanded. "The last time we had asparagus the Badgers lost to Nebraska." (In the final game of the regular season.)

So asparagus was scratched from the menu and, as a result, the Badgers will move on to Anaheim in the NCAA tournament. (How a non sequitur is created.)

Needless to say, asparagus will never be on the menu in this household on a Badger basketball game day.
