Tonight We Draft
Tonight 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.
