Every year our family runs a Footy tipping contest. We have been doing it for 4 years now, and 3 out of the four I've come bottom ( well last year I came second last, but Michelle stopped tipping after a while so it doesn't count)
I'm really quite thrilled to be the wooden spooner, if you can't win, then at least there is something distinguished about being last, the loser. Rather than being somewhere all muddled up in the middle.
It's not that I can't tip or pick teams, but I tip in different way to most people, I tip who I want to win rather than who I think will win. It's moral tipping really. I can't understand how people can tip one team and go for the one playing against them, all for sake of a few points, so unethical too, in my opinion.
This year I also added a few new tipping terms for when two teams who I both hated played each other ,one was called the DGF ( don't give a -use your imagination) and TRHTGF ( trying really hard to give a - again) and the GTMOF ( give to much of - you get the picture)
ANd I didn't just loose I came a whopping 26 points behind Mum , who was second last.
I think that's an achievement, I think quite a skilled and hard earned.
