    I use past players numbers to call out my scores after each hole on the golf course when I play (rarely). Far too many Ian Morrison's and Stan Davidson's (post 53) to impact my handicap.

    When I can't sleep instead of counting sheep I run through the Bulldogs playing list in number order. Sometimes I try to give myself a challenge by going back to another year.
    Doesn't always work for putting me to sleep though because I get so desperate to know the answers!

    I commentate cricket games where I am bowling to Mark Taylor. That'd be enough to put anyone to sleep.

    I do the same thing, sometimes I try numbers by decades as well.
    Couple of times I've had to pull out the ipad to look up numbers and get stuck awake with a quick look at Woof.

    What's numbers by decades?

    I can be watching a show or reading a book and they will mention a sum or an equation and that's me done. I have to check that it's right. Old time footy scores have to be checked to make sure they all add up. I can get a bit obsessive at times about numbers.

    Sometimes I amuse myself when walking the dog by taking the house numbers and applying an appropriate player description eg number 2, good for its age; number 9, FOR SALE, that kind of thing.

    I also do the same as jazzadogs when I can't sleep but I go backwards.

    Nothing to do with footy I know but just found it a sign.

    The treasurer at Bacchus Marsh Bowls Club is also one of the bingo callers.

    Cheers KT. That'd just get my whirling worse I reckon. I'd just have to know who number 60 was in 1987 or I wouldn't be able to sleep.

    Stay away from negative people. They have a problem for every solution.

    Doug misses inaugurating 1977 as the first Doug Hawkins day by 1 year. He debuted in 1978 but at least he had the good grace to make it April Fools day, 1/4/1978.
