@George,
I am confused. Is RH signed up to play in our league?

@realjohnboy,
Rh is jus' playin' 'round.
Whenever you see a Flying Squirrel, RH is flapping.

@fbaezer,
Aside to Pancho: did you feel today's earthquake (7.6 or so)? News here has been a bit scarce.

@McGentrix,
I do this for fun. and almost coherent fits of snark and doom are something less than that...

and less than enjoyable for most of the audience. (granted, there's always some lawyer dude wishing to watch a train wreck...)

just thought that this would be the best time for y'all to be able fill my spot with someone less likely to be a lightning rod for a crapfest...

I s'pose if the other 8 of you is willing to put up with it, I can as well.

you have 5 days left to decide...

@Rockhead,
The alternative would be for me to go after Spendius to join. Do we really want that?
I'll settle for RH with snark and doom.

By the way, I am in the 87th % on the Yahoo NCAA thing. 12% of the players are above me but 86% are doing worse then me.
President Obama, playing in the ESPN version, is at 98%. Damn good, especially when you consider that he made some of his picks based on teams in states leaning Dem in the fall.

I's looking forward to beating you, so I s'pose I can put up with it.

@realjohnboy,
It was a toughie, John.
Toughest since the terrible Big One in '85.
A few moments of fear, but everybody was civil and almost no one was harmed.
This city rocks! (in both senses of the word)

I spoke with Rhys, explaining the snark-and-doom potential.
When I asked if Rockhead should play, he said "Heck yeah."

LAST CALL!
Our league here on A2K will be holding our draft of MLB players on Saturday evening. We have 10 participants but the commissioner has set the league size to 12.
So we can accept 2 more players! But. if you want to get in, you need to hurry.
Let us know if you would like to join in the merriment.

Well ... my second game today starts at 4:40, and the draft starts 50 minutes later ... so it seems I will miss the live draft after all. Sad

@Ticomaya,
Re the NCAA B'ball Tourney...
I am not meaning to crow (a lie), but I am 166,217th in the Yahoo game out of about 3.7 million players. That puts me in the 94th percentile.
My West bracket is busted but I am doing well otherwise.
I have Ohio State over Syracuse tonight.

@realjohnboy,
Draft in T minus 1 hour and 20 or so mins.

We are still drafting Bobby Jenks, Dice-K, Tim and Kevin Wakefield (I wish I knew where Kevin came from but Kevin, if you're out there, even if you're not eligible to play professional ball, you're about to be drafted). We will also draft Rick Santorum, in the hope that he will be strapped to the top of the team bus at some point as we roll into the next town (yeah, I know that's Romney, but what the hell; it'll work for Santorum, too).

We puppies take care o' our canines, know what I'm sayin'.

@jespah,
Is Rick Santorum a rightie who throws a lot of wild fast balls and Hail Mary passes?
