We all take turns picking real hockey players to be on our teams.

Then we decide who we want to employ to garner statistics for us each evening.

Then the real life hockey players, play.

Then if they score points, we get points.

Then whoever has the most points wins!

Thanks Rob.  :)  I had no idea how this fantasy sports thing worked either - but always wanted to know.  Too bad I just don't care for sports...

hmmm... that's how it works? do you literally go through every single player in the league or just the ones that people care about?

Only the ones people care about - you get a certain number of roster spots to fill - and a few bench players to rotate in and out - once those spots are filled, the draft is over.

that seems like a lot of work. i'd probably feel guilty and pick the players that aren't that popular, anyway.

Sorry I slacked on signing up, I'm in now. Not sure if I can make whichever time we draft, but I'll just deal with what it gives me if I have to.

I know it sucks, but I'm probably going to move the draft to 8:30 PM on Saturday night.  I don't even know if I can make that one either. 

If there's a preferred time on Sat/Sun for you guys, lmk here and I'll move it there.  I'll have to make the shift in draft time by tomorrow night though.

Sunday night is fine with me - but there's less than a 5% chance of me being around Saturday night.  If you don't think you'll make Saturday night either, I'd prefer that you left it where it was since I know I can make it Thursday.

Actually it's Wednesday currently, isn't it? 

The move from Wed is to accommodate me, Jeff (who's going to the game with me, I think) and Scott who has to work late.  I'm the impetus for the move, but not the only one benefitting. 

Oh, and I was misleading.  Sorry.  I should have said Friday/Saturday night.  Sunday only has 8 or 9 am.  Blech.

Check that. :)

I just checked and they opened up all of next week in the last hour or two, so I moved the draft to next Wednesday, same time (8:30 central). 

All of next week should be open, so if anyone has a conflict there, we have opportunity to move it.

Oh yeah - it is Wednesday...

Either way, in all probability, Friday and Saturday don't fly for me.   :P\



Edit:  Happy ending I see.

Yeah, now we just need a few more bodies.

Jamie makes 7, my buddy Duane should make 8.  Nice to get at least two more.

Somehow I managed to sign up last week and not hit the register button, which Jason pointed out to me today. I signed up for real this time, but am 99% sure I won't make the draft tonight.

I'm home and good to go.  Sadly I have to do some stuff for work while we draft though... so if I disappear it's because my computer exploded.
