We’ve talked a lot about traditions here at Killer Nuts Tailgating. There are unshakeable traditions involved with our parties every week, and I have a few of my own — the buckeye in my pocket or the recently discussed necklace, to name a couple.

There is another. And for reasons I don’t quite understand myself, I’m going to ask for your help with it this season.

I’m not an overly superstitious guy. I don’t have lucky jerseys, and I don’t freak out if I’m sitting on a different seat cushion from one week to the next.

And I’m not sure if this is really a superstition or just a tradition, but here it is: I pick one pair of boxers and wear them for every game for the entire season.

Yes. I wash them. Don’t be gross.

I went up into the attic tonight, to bring down some shirts that have been stored since the completion of the 2011 season. I’m starting to get stuff organized for our trip to Columbus Friday morning, and I want to be pretty much packed tomorrow.

I have just about everything ready. But I don’t know which boxers will be the game boxers for this fall.

And that’s where you’re going to help.

I’m about 90-percent sure that these have all been football boxers in previous seasons; I couldn’t for the life of me begin to recall when I wore which ones though. In my eyes, they’re all equal — until this Saturday morning.

Here’s a look at your choices:

One: Sort of a Block O pattern.

Two: Hooboy bright.

Three: Sort of a classic.

Four: Almost matches the stripes on the helmets.

Here’s what we’ll do. After I load the truck early Saturday — I’ll be done around 6:30, if I’m on schedule — I’ll open the blog and take a look at the results of the poll below. All have all four with me, and the leader at that point will be the boxers for the 2012 season.

Thank you in advance for your attention to this pressing matter.

    I choose number 1, sort of block “O”.

    I have two reactions to this: What are you, a girl or something? And: I really really am not sure I want to know about your underwear.

    I voted anyway. Go figure.
