What’s the best way to stuff your weekend right up? Well if you’re having a party I wouldn’t suggest an open invite on Facebook…but I digress, the real way to stuff your weekend right up is to choose a Friday night captain.
Don’t worry about who Calvin predicts, resist the urge! Your mental state will thank you.
After a long week at the grindstone all I want to do is get home, crack open a Boags and watch some footy. After that I want to enjoy a nice workless two days on the couch. This is what weekends are for, they are happy times, carefree times. Unless of course you pick a Friday night captain. When (not if) It goes tits up and your captain scores a 55 your weekend is instantly ruined. Each time you look at your team for the rest of the weekend you see that pissant score sitting next to the big c and it brings you down. ..way down. You can’t help but think what if….? How good would my score be if…..? By Saturday morning you will have already received 15 texts from league mates mocking your choice and then you have to watch the Saturday games through the cracks between your fingers while your mate’s captains rack up the double points. Swan is everywhere when you don’t have him.
Potential is the key word here. When you are doing your sums late on a Saturday night wondering if you are going to win your match it always works out much better if you have a captain waiting to play… so that’s ummm 300pts there from the captain, plus 7 players left that’s another 700, I’ve got this, easy! It makes the weekend worth living. Nothing beats coming home with the big rush on Sunday…..love the Sunday captain. Normally your opponent will have been sprouting about how much they are killing you by so it makes it all the more sweet.
I don’t really care as much if my captain scrapes a 60 on a Sunday night. The weekend is already over, I’m already depressed enough about going to work on Monday so it’s just another drop in that ocean of misery. Plus who can even get onto the AFL DT site on a Sunday evening anyway? It’s harder than getting into the viper room or china whites. I reckon a mouse on a wheel is running the server Sunday nights. Also being a fox game it’s just hidden away, bad things can happen in the Sunday eve game and I’ll let it slide because it’s not really there for me to see in gory detail.
So that’s the big stat for the day, Sunday captains are the recipe for a happy weekend.
