Damn, good luck to everyone. Takes a big man to fill my shoes.
GeodBear is a fine substitute. I had a busy birthday week going into the weekend. Hence my MIA-ness. Started with a in-person draft on Wednesday(10pm-130am). Multiple dinners with family and friends. Weekend outing with my San Diego homies. 2 hours sleep. Continued the morning with a Sunday brunch auction draft. Immediately drove straight up to Los Angeles for an in-person auction,which I commish, at my office with the LA Homies, starting at 5pm ending at 10pm. 15 teams $200 buy-in. If I had known, I would have still drafted for the Octagon. Overlapping 2 very competitive leagues. On top of driving 120 miles La Jolla to Glendale. Then Glendale to home in Irvine(47 miles) by midnight. Every mile is worth it. Good times, great people, fantasy basketball.
And again tonight(monday) I drafted another auction team during the evening. Driving 70 miles to Northridge and back for an auction draft. Possibly overlapping another competitive league with an octagon draft. Then back home to Irvine 70miles. To find out I have been replaced.
All for the best I guess. To bad, I was looking forward to the Octagon this year. Would have been a major achievement to pull off that schedule with the FBCOCL mixed in.
I am proud to be involved with many great fantasy leagues including the Octagon. Maybe next year I can get grandfathered in somehow. If the league pleases. Any consideration would be much appreciated. Would love to be a part of this. For now I will take out my anger on the Cafe Auction League. Unless I have been replaced there too.
Geodbear? Tell me now. j/k. I checked. So far so good.
4 drafts down. 3 to go. Sans 2 octagon drafts. Tuesday(cafe auction). Wednesday(OC homies). Thursday (friends & family). Done dada, maybe.
Once again, sorry i missed out. The Champions league has a great lineup this year. Super jealous. After all this and my upcoming schedule, I am not sure its possible to question my dedication to fantasy basketball.
Aaaaaaaaaaaand my girlfriend tried to have a fantasy intervention with me last night before going bed. Bitch please. "Impossible!" I left the room and slept on the couch.
side note: my fbc account is not linked to my primary email account. And I did not receive my usual forwards. I want to make it clear. I was not intentionally ignoring my pms or notifications. This was a case of bad timing. I still like the idea of incorporating an auction into the champions league. Did you guys do this?
