Okay, I guess I’m doing these once per week. Dunno.
Well, the Fantasy Football Draft was last night. That bastard Ed screwed me again. Took both William Green and Amos Zereoue right before my picks. Other than that, everything went pretty well…
For the first time, ever, I think, I got a top 3 quarterback in Daunte Culpepper, so that in itself should be interesting. Watch him get hurt now. I got Shaun Alexander as I expected, but have to go with Trung Candidate as my backup runner. Maybe if some of my other runners or receivers get good, I can trade for someone. Other than that, pretty uneventful in terms of draft.
Typical draft night, I bring 300 sheets of paper, and end up using 1 sheet. Great. You can’t drink, smoke, eat, draft, and be commissioner at the same time. The best part of last night was the setup for the draft. Jules sectioned off an area in the back, and made it like a banquet table. The draft board was at one end, and we were able to keep the smoking at the north side. Although I think only Toshi and Wayne (and Jules’s son, Anthony) are non-smokers. Ed may not be, but he always has to bust on Jim and confer and such, so he was down at their end.
Dave got along with everyone. Not sure if he drafted really well, but he got along with everyone. I forgot that he was on the Christmas Golf Outing, so he already knew Greg and Doug. Everyone showed up, and everyone showed up on time, which was so cool. And I didn’t have to work the sticker board, I was able to just sit at my chair and write down the picks. It’s good to know where people were drafted, but not sure if I would do it that way again as sportsline.com makes you enter everyone by team. It would be easier to just put four running backs in, rather than do it by round.
So I wolfed down a burger. (Maybe I should eat before next year). I drank four beers. Dead tired today. Smoked an Excalibur cigar, which was sweet, no bad taste in my mouth. I should get them all the time. Joked with the guys. And drafted a crappy team, with no players that I like. I was pushing for Seattle, St. Louis, and Cleveland Guys. And ended up all over the board, Seattle, Minnesota, Washington, Buffalo, Oakland, Pittsburgh, St. Louis
