Pleased to see you can recognise your own failings unlike some on here........
one persons blunt is another persons rude I guess, flip side, one persons spiel can just be hot air...depends what you take out of it I guess
My own personal answer to the OP is, "captain?", "heads/tails?" "enjoy the game, good luck". And off we go. Granted other folk will have alternative things to say and am sure there is merit to (some) of it.
