I just renewed the league. You should have the URL in an email. Let me know if you have not received it.

As a placeholder, I selected Sep 1 (Wednesday) at 8:30 pm EST as the draft time. This may change as the other league members receive the invite and chime in with any conflicts.

Same rules as last year unless someone wants to propose a rule change.

Looking forward to it! It's like Christmas in September!
Looks like I'll be in Mexico for the draft and not India. That means tacos and tequila on draft night instead of tandoori chicken for a very early breakfast.

Still no idea on what my wine ante is going to be. Will try to come to a decision this week.

When is the draft order determined?

I'm taking Jason Campbell with my first pick!

Just Win Baby!

I found it interesting how close the final standings were - what was it, 3 games between 2nd and 11th place? I played in 5 leagues and none were anywhere near as balanced.

Big Grin

Wish I could blame it on my travels, but both my teams just didn't have it this year.
I thought I had posted the congratulatory note to the winner last year: MnMark (Nazgul), again. Back-to-back championships.

2nd and 3rd Places went to DoubleD and AZWildcat, respectively.

The wine distributions went like this:

1. Nazgul (2007 Drinkward Peschon Entre Deux Meres Cabernet Sauvignon)
2. DoubleD (2007 Pahlmeyer Merlot)
3. AZ Wildcats (2006 Vieux Telegraphe CDP)
4. Nazgul (2004 Numanthia Termes)
5. DoubleD (2005 EIEIO Meredith Mitchell Vineyard Pinot Noir)
6. AZ Wildcats (2008 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon)
7. Nazgul (2006 Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon)
8. DoubleD (2005 Miner Rosella's Vineyard Pinot Noir)
9. Nazgul (2004 Merry Edwards Russian River Pinot Noir)
10. Nazgul (2004 Pride Syrah)
11. Nazgul (XXXX Port)
12. Nazgul (2005 Frescobaldi Brunello di Montalcino Castelgiocondo)
