@JaneAlex,
Sorry to hear that. We still have room for two more players. But we need two to keep it at an even number.
Driving on...I heard today an expression I had not heard for years. It is appropriate for this thread:
Did You Get The Sensation Today That A Goose Had Walked Over Your Grave?

I googled that. Pretty interesting stuff.
Appropriate here on this thread because I, Realjohnboy of Rappin' Rednecks fame, has started to do research ahead of the draft that Rhys has scheduled for March 24th. Yall should get scared.
I have a spreadsheet of players and positions. And I am not just looking at the early rounds. I am going to pick all the way through. I am checking out the rookies.
The Rednecks will rock this season.

You have done this in the past ... has it ever really helped you?

@mismi,
Negative.

... But I beat the Skinny Pups in the loser's bracket of the Consolation Round to claim 7th!

@Ticomaya,
And the Skinny Pups are feeling duly chastened and are a lil whiny these days 'cause of that.

As an aside, Yahoo has an NCAA College Basketball Fantasy thing starting up. I wonder if Tico (or someone) could set up a league for A2Kers and friends.
The deadline for picking through the entire bracket is something like 70 hours from now. That is, around noon on Thursday.
I would suggest not limiting the size of the league and, if there is no problem with this, publishing the league ID and password on A2K.

Very Happy Were you on the Skinny Pups? I don't know who's who yet. I suppose I will figure it all out as we go along.

We were not successful in setting up an A2K NCAA B'ball game. So far, I am 8 for 8. But the games have been quite predictable, haven't they?

@ossobuco,
The NCAA thing is going on. I and 3,170,907 of my closest friends on Yahoo are competing. I am in 395,662nd place which puts me in the 87% ranking. i.e. 13% are ahead of me.
My brackets are holding up okay except I had Murray State not getting knocked out this early.
No one on Yahoo has a perfect bracket anymore.
I wonder how I am doing compared to President Obama?

@George,
I think it would be a good idea if someone was to be found to replace me.

I had forgotten how Osso was when she gets close to me. I don't think she can handle playing in a league with me for 6 months.

thanks...

We need to address this quickly.
Rockhead, are you sure you won't participate?

@George,
I'm not sure of anything except that I sure as hell don't enjoy it when she gets a cork up her ass and decides to publicize her warped opinions of me.

six months is a long time.

you guys decide...

If Cyclo and I can play ball, you and Osso had better be able to as well.

Well, if I get to decide -- you play.
Six months may be a long time, but there are nine other teams so you only
face a given opponent one-ninth of the time.
