I rock even when I'm not trying

Seriously. I rock. I rock possibly even the Casbah.


I'm in a footy tipping comp back home. (AFL footy to be precise, though it is in the heart of League country). And I'm doing, well, to be frank, piss-poor. I know not a thing about the game, though I do love where the goal you get when you don't actually get it through the main goal posts is called a behind. How many other games do you know where "Behinds kicked" is officially tallied??

Since I know so little about the game I put the entire years worth of tips in at the start of the season. 24 weeks worth of tips before the teams have even started to play. 'Cause, being the total girl that I am, I pick teams on the colours of their geurnseys and the attractiveness of the captains. And whichever team is playing Eddie McGuire Collingwood.

And somehow - even though I am a girl and I put all my picks to win in about three months ago - I topped picking the round this week. This means out of the 48 people in the tipping competition I picked the most winners, and the margin. (Well, I was closest to the margin. Only got it wrong by 5)

I'll win about 20 dollars (Australian) for this. So Yay! to me for that.

I may have won back some of my brothers respect with this little moment of glory. He was so ashamed that I had done my tips in one foul sweep at the start. So embarrassed he offered to do the tips for me. He was already having trouble with the fact at the time I was bottom of the ladder and he's one of the top 5 tipsters.

For the record, I'm know coming 38th.

LOL! I haven't got a clue what any of that meant, other than you bet on something and won some money? :g: So congrats! I knew you could kick butt! :-)

Spend the money wisely. Or not. It is found money, after all, and it's a law you can spend found money however you want. You could buy a DVD. A classic DVD! That way you can be wise and not wise at the same time. ;)

It probably makes a wee bit more sense now - it was missing half the explaination before!

You've got a very good idea there for what to do with my winnings... now I just have to narrow down the DVD possibilities.

LOL!

As an Aussie girl with about as much knowledge of AFL as you have?

You *so* rock!
