THANK YOU!

Not sure if you have seen the movie "Aliens", but in that movie, as they are descending to the planet, the pilot says "We're in the pipe, 5 by 5." and I have always wondered what that meant.

/digression
oh yeah... that's prolly where i first heard it used... Smile

I see that we have a 10th player signed up! The Flying Squirrels. The name associated to the team is "Jack." I don't know who that is but he seems to have played before, but perhaps not recently.
10 is good but the league can handle 12 players so I will try to attract 2 more.
Player #11 must realize that we need to end with an even number (12).

True, although I will now be expecting a sympathy trade or, well, at least some tea and sympathy. Or you could just mail me a teabag, and I'll make my own.

The Flying Squirrels beat you in the semis, and finished in first place in 2010.

@realjohnboy,
Here's a photo for Region -

"Pitchers and catchers and terriers: Some baseball insiders suspect the Rangers' new short reliever throws a drooler. (A Boston terrier belonging to pitcher Tanner Scheppers works out with the team in Surprise, Ariz.)"

Wrong team for Region, but hey.

Meantime, gooooo, Giants!

The sand corgis (sort of an oxymoron except for when I brought Pacco to New Mexico) will be at the beach working out pre-season. Probably at Half Moon Bay in the San Francisco area, more amenable for dog ball than here, I think.

Jespah and her husband, Region; George and his son, Rhys. Sox fans. No problem with you being one, too.
"Your country?" Is that Tahiti?

We have had a player from Canada in the past, I think. But so far 9 of the 10 players are from the U.S. The 10th player is from Mexico.
He is, as we say here, a bit of a pain in the butt. He never comes close to winning, but he does keep trying. I guess that is admirable.
heeheehee, as you might say.

As of now the only specific date preference for the draft is March 25.
If this holds till end-of-day Friday, then the draft will be moved to that date.
