But of course, I had to do something for my boys in preparation. Newcomers to my blog may not know that I have ingeniously combined superstition and sporting dreams. So far in blogging history we have only had a 66% win/loss ratio, but the good news is that you apparently are always a winner when the to do list gets checked!!!
So - what DID I do that was powerful enough to drag the team who were pulverised in the first game up to a level that they not only held the Blues to nil, but kept them from even seeing the end of the park that would have given them hopes of any points?
I. Cleaned. The. Garage.
Well, okay - I didn't - not by myself - V and I with 'Salina as a cheer squad got the main workload out of the way on the weekend. It has only been an oft talked about concept, but finally we took advantage of the Queen's Birthday to dismantle the pile of crap and turn it into piles of opportunity.
But yesterday - the day my internal gods deem I have to find a mountain to move to convert into brownie points so my football team can spifflicate the defence?
- I MADE the phonecall to organise advertising for the garage sale.
- I SORTED the boxes and piles into a promotional masterpiece designed to entice the masses from their hard earned 5 and 10 cent pieces.
- I THREW OUT all the crap that I didn't even think work 5c.
Did it work? Well, do you see the happy dance I am doing here?
Of course, it is possible that including Prince in the side - and the other 20 or so boofy blokes - may have had something to do with it!
