If anyone on the reserves list wants to be moved to the last spot or something (you know, to actually be a reserve), just say so.
I am already in that spot, but I'll confirm that I am fine with being a true reserve. If I start the game then I am sure I'll have fun, but if I don't start the game then it isn't going to ruin my day or anything. :)
Oh, yeah, and I actually missed the shoe question while skimming the rules before. Only sissies wear shoes ... seriously; I only wear fuzzy pink socks with bows on them, like a Real Man (TM). :P
