For Wilson, keeping routine means doubling up during Super Bowl week
Russell Wilson says he isn’t superstitious.
The Seahawks quarterback does like to maintain a routine, though. So while just about everything will be different during the week leading up to the Super Bowl – Seattle’s practice schedule, media availability, etc. – Wilson is trying to keep at least one thing the same: his rooming arrangement.
He told 710 ESPN Seattle’s “Brock and Salk” on Thursday that he and running back Robert Turbin will continue to room together even though they don’t have to.
“Robert Turbin and I, we always room together during the regular season – we have for the past three years – and the playoffs,” Wilson explained. “But for the Super Bowl, everybody gets their own room. Last year and this year, the thing that Robert and I asked for is to share the same room just so we keep it normal. I don’t want to change that.
“It’s not a superstition. It’s just I believe in great habits. I believe that you want to keep things normal in your life and consistent, especially when you’re going through a season like this and you have a quote-unquote big game, everybody wants to change things a little bit. That’s a great thing, getting your own room and all that stuff, but for me and Robert, we want to keep it normal. So that’s kinda how we go about it.”
