The mention about athletes and OCD makes sense. One of the greatest pure basketball shooters I've ever seen in person was absolutely OCD, to the point that he'd freak out over things like touching his hair or scuffing his shoes.

In any case they're talking about it in a sense of routine. Fan created superstitions like thinking a uniform is bad luck or thinking the team is winning because they haven't shaven their hideous neckbeard are stupid.

Not sure if you watch baseball, but watching Adrian Beltre freak out when someone touches his head is pretty hilarious.
