Steg is back in NJ!  Standby flying actually went TOTALLY smoothly, save for not being able to get on the first flight out of Honolulu on Saturday and then, by choice mind you, losing one day, by choice meaning that I decided that I did not want to gate-hop on Saturday and tapped out right away.  Sunday-Monday, though, straight through!  Anyway, see yous soon.

It looks like I will be able to attend the draft in person and riding to the draft with Warner.

Heya, Francis...  'Tis been awhile (five years)...  A little hazy on how to get down to you in old Uncle Tom's River.  I kind of recall having, at some point in the journey, to hit up Redskin Springs Road or something like that.  I just remember feeling so racist as I was driving down it. Anyway, could you pop us an e-mail or private message with your home address and perhaps an optimal phone number at which to reach you?  Also, 1:00 start time good for you?

Redskin Road to get to Uncle Tom's River?  Really?  You just can't make this stuff up.

OK boys. Back on the grid after spending a few days with your brethren in the backwoods of Pennsyltucky.
 
I'll send out an e-mail to all involved on how to get to Redskin Road or Foreskin blvd or whatever Steve's fantasy is at the moment.  
 
See you all at 1:00 on Saturday. Lunch will be served promptly at 1:30.

In response to an e-mail inquiry, the "official" start time is set for 1:00 (EST).  We do not have anything really to discuss, just get Warner his plaque after our new "spitting-on-the-plaque" ceremonies we will be commencing this year. So, especially for our remote participants, I would be surprised if we are commencing the draft any later than 1:30-1:45.
 
THAT SAID, it is a SATURDAY, and a group of us are getting together, some of us having come great distance, for the first time in FIVE YEARS and not again for an unknown number of YEARS.  So, it is much appreciated if those participating remotely can keep that in mind and roll with things a bit, taking Xanax as needed.  Not that we have ever rushed, but we are on even less of a time crunch than when we have typically had the draft, that is, on a Sunday.
 
On that note, for the boys that will be in the hood, I am even thinking some after-draft, late-night frolicking like the old days...???

I'm cool with a long draft.  You guys know me -- I don't get impatient with the slowness of picks.  As long as I can whine about my player getting taken right ahead of me, insult people (especially Danny) for their picks, and shoot the breeze about all things fantasy football, I'm good to go.

Travis, i am the best drafter in this league. Last year i took shit for getting Hill, now top five RB. I have surprises for all today as my scouts and I have it dialed in. I am hired for advise.

Hill was a good pick, though let's be honest -- Bernard got hit big with injuries last year, so some luck was involved in Hill getting the opportunity in the first place.  
 
I think "top-5" is overstating his value. Everyone knows Bernard is getting snaps and stealing carries in some kind of time-share.
 
I would think if you were the best drafter you'd be winning more championships, either by dominating with young studs or parlaying your young studs into veteran stars.
 
That said, I wasn't saying you were the worst drafter. Just that it's sometimes easiest to pick on your picks.

Joe and I are at Franks.....shockingly, 5 minutes until the start time, and no one else is here.

Here's what I said that elicited your quoted respones above: (1) that Hill was a good pick, (2) that Hill isn't a top 5 rb, (3) that being the best drafter would have gotten you more than 1 championship in the last 10 years, and (4) that it's tons of fun making fun of your picks.  I think everyone who according to you is qualified to judge these matters (i.e., apparently, those who have won multiple championships) would agree with those points I made.
 
Besides, are you saying that to make a competent judgment about who is the best drafter in the league you have to have won more championships than anybody?  If so, not even you can talk -- several people have won more times than you, so I'm afraid you, too, are going to have to "zip it" and leave it to the big boys to decide who's the best drafter.

Get your facts right Travis, not several people at all, i think only one which is DB. Go take another Sammy Watkins with the first overall pick, that was a great pick, almost as good as my Jarmarcus Russell pick

Wow, if you think Watkins was nearly as bad as Russell you ARE a bad drafter.
 
Go compare Dez Bryant's first year stats with Sammy Watkins.  Then get back to me.
 
Wait a minute. YOU took RUSSELL?!?! Yikes.

Nice!  This is the stuff that like I have ALL of, like even dating back to 1989 and the Mark Malone League.  I am going to get it up here someday in the "near" future, at least the stuff dating back to 1993, the inaugural year of the GBRFL.

That was cool seeing those old ASG pages.  Of course, I notice that my team, The Wheatwhackers, were 8-1 and in first place.  
 
Some things never change!
 
I had 4 HOFers.  Marino, Favre, Rice, Irvin.

Well, at the moment, Mark deserves more thanks than me. But, thank you!
 
By the way, you all should have received an e-mail from me yesterday with an unusual subject (in Korean). Did any of you not get it or perhaps mistakenly delete it? It contained somewhat important information and questions regarding the league (and a picture of little Monica Marie). If you do not have it, please let me know.
