So several of my college theater friends (and other friends) have been playing fantasy football together for the last few years. If you play fantasy football, you know that often a team could be projected at 135 points, and end up with like, 80, based on fluke underdog wins, injuries, etc. And every year, we have a gmail chain going to make fun of members of our league (sometimes me) who have scored particularly low.
This year, we are upping the ante. Our first week, my friend Clare was the biggest loser with only 83 points. Meanwhile, the biggest winner was Molly with 155. Through a number of emails, the group decided that each week, the lowest scorer (now known as “The Clare”) will be faced with social media shaming, which will be chosen by the highest scorer of the week.
Make sense? Here’s the simple version.
Week 1: Clare was The Clare. She was forced to post this to facebook with the “♥ her” comment:
Week 2: Ironically, Molly became “The Clare” and was required to post a selfie, in a bathroom, toilet visible, with the comment “everybody poops lol”
Week 3, when I ALMOST BECAME THE CLARE, Brett actually became The Clare, and had to post a throwback photo to Vanderbilt Theater with the hashtags #tbt #college #missthis #tightiewhities… As you might could assume, it’s a VERY tighty whity picture that, no offense Brett, I’d rather not post on my blog.
Week 4, WILL is THE CLARE! What you need to know about Will is that 1) he rarely uses FB and 2) he LOVES Nashville hot chicken, particularly that of Hattie B’s. So when our friends found the following advertisement, will was forced to post to his FB page with the comment “Finally! #hattiebs #mintyfresh.”
Week 5, CLARE becomes THE CLARE again! It’s only fitting she should be the first to hold this title twice. Sticking with the TSwift theme, the following was posted to her FB (note the amazing caption):
Week 6, it was my husband’s turn. Lucky guy. You need to know that my husband is a HUGE cubs fan. He posted the following photo with this caption:
Big game tonight boys, I believe in you!!!! #DoItForMark #Cubs
Week 7, it was Will again. A very simple:
#tbt #duckface #missmyhair
Week 8, my time had come. This started me on a slippery downward spiral. Thank you, friends, for taking some old photos and making me feel a fool. (There was this one time, in high school, that I took a dance class and they made me participate in a recital. Shut up). My caption:
Was thinking about starting an adult version of The Ohio State University Cheerleaders I even picked out a uniform! Your thoughts? #OhioState
Week 9, Alex is The Clare. She is so darn cute and has very little dirt…so this is what it came down to…
Winter is around the corner, and I can already feel my skin drying out. Thinking I better get on this… http://www.uddercream.com/ #udderbutter #feelssogood
Week 10, my hubby’s turn again! Went with a Tswifter on this one.
Can’t wait to finally take the time to read this over winter break. She’s a real inspiration. Considering cancelling my Spotify because her art IS worth paying for, no matter what the haters say. #truth #notashamed #taylornation
Week 11, me again. By A LOT. You may recall this slightly out of place blog post…This was my punishment for the week.
Week 12, Alex round 2!! I had a hand in this one, and I was pretty proud of the 40+ likes she got for it. Full of all the wonderful hashtags you’d expect…
“Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness.” Following my inner moonlight with my #starbucks #redcup with a pump of ❄ #LTD #selfie#coffee #justagirl #letitsnow #moonlight #madness #allenginsberg #quotes
Week 13, me AGAIN. But honestly, this one was not too bad. Just a silly little Elf post…
Decided to spread the #Christmas cheer a little early this year…HO HO HO!! Enjoy! #xmas #mostwonderfultimeofyear #lovemyhubby #castsucksnot
Week 14, the FINAL week, thank GOODNESS. Landed on me AGAIN. So I was The Clare queen with a total of FOUR The Clares. However, due to everyone shifting attention to the playoffs, I never received a formal punishment for this. I was informed though that next year the name of “The Clare” will be changed, and aptly named after me. I guess that’s the final punishment. A shameful legacy.
Anyone else have fun wagers on the line for their fantasy league? Please share!
