The Mount Vesuvius Fighting Velvi select Tough Juice (aka Caron Butler).
I got Michael Beasley
Bulldog, you up dude
I was down to him, Tough Juice and two other guys to lesser degrees.
Not thrilled with Caron, but I like him a lot in real life (much more than this fantasy system for sure) and couldn't pull the trigger on a complete unproven who certainly won't be particularly helpful in Year 1 for sure.
Figured I'd go half safe instead of boom/bust in Round 2, especially since my cornerstone, Al Jeff, isn't a guarenteed leadpipe lock himself.
Screw it, I'll take Pau Gasol. Looks like I'll have to mess with my Andrew Bynum voodoo doll again.
The Indricity Haggards select..... Paul Pierce
Haggard's Blog: Can't Buy a Basket. Covering the highs and lows of the NBL
Thanks for your help with the list guys.
The two that didn't send me a PMN have not been on since yesterday afternoon.
My time is limited during the day but once Avoiding the Clowns announces pick #34, I'll post what picks I have as soon as I can.
I hope you guys in the mid to late 40 range are prepared, you'll be picking sometime this afternoon.
sorry didn't get a chance to log on until now.
This is the darkest timeline.
Aesop Rock on takes Rudy Gay
This is fun!
Man, it was really close. Do I watch paint dry, or you guys draft?
I decided the paint would be faster.
I figured a keeper league, you're drafting the foundation of your team for years to come.....I thought the first two rounds would fly by.
Hey! What're you kicking me for? You want me to ask? All right, I'll ask! Ma'am, where do the high school girls hang out in this town?
I was hoping to hear from you Scott.
I had a feeling there would be little bumps like this one. With half the league being first year players, this stuff is bound to happen.
Growing Pains, with the highlight on Pains!
I might have to go searching for replacements. I'm sure that sound I hear is the vets gnawing their teeth.
The draft is always my favorite part of any fantasy squad. The waiting is really bringing me down. At this rate I might actually get some work done today.
I think we should just assign players randomly after 6 hours absence. And when I say randomly, I mean from the bottom of the 12th man pool. Except Diener.
I'm not overly fond of changing rules in the middle of the game.
I have no problem with dropping guys that don't don't seem interested in playing.
Not logging on to Pacers Digest during our draft qualifies as not showing an interest.
Not making your picks on a timely basis qualifies as a lack of interest.
Not sending me, or anyone for that matter, a list of players to draft for you, shows a lack of interest.
There might be a reason why Intridcold hasn't been on the site for 29 hours & 12 minutes as of now, I don't know.
We'll find out & then take it from there.
I've added some info to the draft board.
To the right of the selections I've added the length of time it took for that selection to be made.
I doubt I'll continue this for the entire draft but I'd like to see how it plays out for at least a couple rounds.
The * means that I was given the pick via a PM & I posted the selection rather than the team owner.
While we're twiddling our thumbs:
LG - what's with the team name Mostar? That doesn't refer to the Bosnian city, does it?
Stanko's birth city of course.
Disclaimer: I probably won't draft him till next year.
Apologies on the 8:11 hour lag, gents.
In fairness, I was in sleepytime. This, however, should not be confused with LG33's 0:22 lag, which was due to him being in Naptime.
Gross, but totally accurate.
Oh, that makes sense. I was born in that part of the world, and I forgot we have a bosnian connection.
Oh cool, whereabouts? And how did you end up in ****** Connecticut?
Yeah but how is it spelled? Plus, the state sucks.
EDIT: I didn't mean to offend you or your city bulldog. It's just that New Jerseyans have a rivalry with Connecticants. I could have gone a lot worse with the nick.

i have always hoped to achieve SoupIsGood like status as a poster on this board. it's comforting to know i'm only 12 minutes away.
This is the darkest timeline.
I'm going to give it a little more time, but I'm still trying to figure that one out atc.
