There are some sports in which the team Captain's job is obvious, cricket being the first which comes to mind.

What does a national golf team Captain do? "Don't knock it in the hole, chaps. That's just what they will be expecting"?

If it's for the Ryder Cup I think the captain actually picks the team so he's really like a player-manager in football.

He used to go down with his ship unless his name happened to be Francesco Schettino :)

Hmmm. Several Greek skippers have earned themselves something of an undistinguished reputation for 'coordinating the rescue effort from the shore' too.
