This is my third year on math team. I'm now captain. Like 4 or 5 years before i joined, my school was a state champ, we switched to int. math, and now we're close to the bottom. I joined for two reasons 1. i like math, kinda a lot. 2. i thought it'd be absofreakinglutely hilarious. I'm not exactly what people'd consider a math geek, heh, not at all, so i figured wouldn't it be a great joke if i was on this really geeky math team. Well, it turned out to be wicked funny, and more so since it was true. Now that i'm captain though, i want to win states again. Chances are like slim to nil, but i'd bet we could do it anyways. Problem: Math team is still a joke to me. And, i've spread that philosophy to most of the team. No one cares about winning. Half the people this year can barely do algebra, but i've started a trend, and so they've joined. So, i've been going a long with the joke part (we're getting shirts that say geek and some cool glasses, all in school colors so our classmates can be proud...) and i've also been crackin' down and am making up extra pratcice sheets and like writing down things people should know, organizing practices and learning periods, all of which has never ever been done before. Most people don't dissagree with anything i'm doing, except my co-captain. He's being a prick and refuses to really get in to the spirit and be enthusiatic like i'm trying to get everyone else to be. He isn't really my problem, he's just a guy, easily dealt with, my problem is that i'm not sure everything i'm doing is cool. Should i chill and let things go like they always have? or should i at least slow down a bit? No one else really cares but me, i'd say not even the coach really. And i think all the responsibilty, though thoroughly abused, is still slightly cramping my care-free deliquent lifestyle. I'm just not sure what i should do as captain i guess. Usually captains do nothing, so i just don't know if i should too.
