Good luck rubber chicken

When I play euchre in the league at McGees on Monday nights, I like to bring a host of good luck props. This will include anything from coins to medals to red clothing. And of course, there is always a rubber chicken. My latest rubber chicken was given to me by a kind soul at work. I suppose there is something about me that makes people think I need rubber chickens. I'm not complaining though. It's great!

Here is a short video of my lucky rubber chicken in action. Whenever I win a point, make a loner, euchre the opponents, or just sense a need for rubber chicken frivolity I "squeeze the chicken." Check out the video below.

That makes me wonder about the rest of you in the Euchre Universe. What are your good luck trinkets, props, or habits at the euchre table?

My jade Buddha. I rub his belly when desparately seeking good cards. My jewish friend taught me that ironically.
Although the Buddha really does not represent a supernatural force capable of changing a euchre hand, I still give it a shot anyway.
