Tonight We Draft

hockeyTonight we draft our 2008 NHL Playoff pool. When I awoke this morning, there were 14 confirmed to participate. It's noon and I've already had three "sorry man, I can't make it" emails. Still, 11 people makes for a pretty good draft and I'm stoked.

This is at least the 15th year in a row we've held this draft. The first time I participated, in the early to mid 90s, it was held at Bishop Allen high school and the guy running the show was Jason Agnew, who is such a mega big shot he's got his own Wiki page. It says he's the voice of "Stars Gone Wild" on Muchmusic... no foolin'.

A couple of years ago I wrote this about Mr. Agnew.

Why Jason Agnew dropped our annual playoff pool like a hot potato is still unknown, but my guess is hanging out with big time mucky mucks at the Fan 590 like Roger Lajoie and Norm Rumack went to his head. What Agnew didn't know was that our playoff pool would persevere and thrive in his absence.

Screw you Agnew, this thing is big. Tonight, a core group who drafted with you back in the day will be joined by several newbies as we pick players to compete in our 2008 NHL Playoff Pool Extravaganza.

I'm going heavy on Red Wings. Don't tell anyone... they won't see it coming. Everyone's picks will show up here late tonight.

HA HA HA you know that guy from the Conventioneers? I hate that guy, he is NOT funny in the slightest and his buddy in the show is more annoying. No worries Booner, the fact that he's too much of a "big shot" to draft with you guys, is a good thing.

Y _ U S _ _ K

this one is for Agnew.

Some jerks are always trying to bring him down for some reason.

It's interesting that he was part of your pool. Thanks for the link to the Wikipedia page. I didn't know he produced Tuner Transformation on Speed.
