    Footy Colours Day for Geeks

    Post  AdamCollings on September 21st 2017, 7:04 pm

    So, today, at work, we're celebrating "Footy Colours Day". Which means people wear the clothes or colours of their favouite football team, and have morning tea, raising money for cancer research.
    They've told us it can include any ball sport play with the feet (so Aussie rules, rugby, soccer, etc...)



    Anyway, I came to work dressed like this.


    Do you think I can claim DC Comics as a ball sport?

    There's gotta be some kind of fictional sport in DC continuity. I know Gotham has a football team.

    Ooh! Ooh! Clark played football in High School!

    From http://batman.wikia.com/wiki/Gotham_City :

    Gotham has a wide variety of sports teams; like their baseball teams, the Gotham Knights and the Gotham Griffins, their basketball team, the Gotham Guardsmen, their football team the Gotham Wildcats and their ice hockey team, the Gotham Blades. The Gotham Knights baseball team colors are black and gold like the Knights football team. The Griffins team colors are dark green and white. In The Dark Knight Rises directed by Christopher Nolan, several Pittsburgh Steelers players portray the fictional Gotham City football team, the Gotham Rogues. In The Batman, there is a different, or possibly an additional, basketball team called the Gotham Gators.

    That actually would have been cool to wear something that said Gotham or Smallville. I'd hope that people would pick up on the references.

    This is me. lol.

    Sadly I can relate to those guys on many levels, including 'appreciation' of football...

    I just remembered I have one of these buried in a wardrobe somewhere though:

    My google research indicates that the Swindon Mallets are a croquet team. Not a sport one generally associates with fanatacism. That's kinda hilarious.
