NationDraft Update: Hello There

The Towel Boy
January 20 2010 04:34PM

 

Oh, hello there.

I am currently busy in my study enjoying a thorough read-through of one of the many great works of one of my favorite authors of classic literature. Yes, I know, how did Ann Rule write so many riveting novels? She truly does have a keen grasp on telling the story of true crimes.

Now, how are you doing? That’s good to hear. I suppose you’re here to inquire about the goings on in the Team 1260 NationDraft.  Well I believe I could oblige and give you an update as to how things are looking.

Let’s sally forth, shall we?

 

Team 1260 NationDraft Update as of Jan 19/10

 

The Top Ten

 

Team Name Points Points behind
1. Young Guns 679 0
2. Calgary Sucks 675 -4
3. The G.O.A.T 675 -4
4. Peniuk Pukes 674 -5
5. R Kenny's Killers 668 -11
6. Inverno76 Oilers 668 -11
7. Kevo91 668 -11
8. FTC 668 -11
9. Subaru Shooters 668 -11
10. MoOsEkNuCkLe 668 -11

Lookie here!  We have some slight changes in the top ten since our last update.  “Peniuk Pukes” shimmied their way into the top ten and kicked “empaul” out into the ranks of the common folk beyond the top ten.  “Kevo91” gave up their third place spot to “The G.O.A.T.” and slid down to seventh.  It’s always good to see some movement in the top ten.  “Young Guns” and “Calgary Sucks” better hope their picks hold up.

 

The Nation Crew

 

Speaking of great people, I would imagine you are vibrating in excitement to see how your draft picks stack up to the fine folks that bring you Oilersnation.com.  Well, vibrate no longer my friend.  I happen to have a list right here:

 

Team Name Points Points behind
120. Robin Brownlee 639 -40
341. RossCreek Renegades 612 -67
435. Jason Gregor 601 -78
521. Towel Boy Vs. Mothra 590 -89
709. The Pacinos 562 -117
744. Bonsignore Citizens Brigade 556 -123
868. Lord Wanye's Steeds 508 -171

 

Woah, nicely done me.  *pats self on back* 

Gregor & Brownlee:  I’m truly sorry to see your rankings slip so hard.  It would be a shame if they were to slip any further.  (insert evil laughter here)

Who’s Hot?

I had Evgeni Malkin slated for a Not Hot spot, but it would seem that he came out of his funk last night with a hat trick.  I also see that Crosby had a small night in the points department last night.  Ok…he had six freakin’ points!  Yeesh.

Who’s Not?

Iginla, where are you dude?   With one point over the past five games he’s not helping anyone’s NationDraft team too much.  Maybe the Olympics will help his confidence?  *crosses fingers for Team Canada*

Honorable Mention

717. The Flyin' Seamen 561 -118

Don't seamen use boats?

747. Team Ogden Jr. 556 -123

I figured this site needed more mention of the word "Ogden".

872. Vancouver sucks 502 -177

We'll see tonight I guess!  (oh boy.)

 


This concludes the latest edition of the Team 1260 NationDraft Update.  I hope your team isn't sucking as hard as mine.

Yours truly,

The Towel Boy

Brownlee still leading the ON crew despite the loss of that slacker Spezza? Is there nothing new in these updates?

244 isn't too shabby. And once Mr.Duff comes back, look out.

Also, I think that photo is fake. Someone clearly photo-shopped the beverage out of your hand.

Of course it's fake; the real Darth Vader's voice bubble sounds much deeper. Amateurs . . .

No chance. I've threatened the team with a bag skate and that Nancy Boy Spezza is going to stop milking the injury.

Comrie, Stotini and Savard are killing me. I think Bourque was a choice instead of Comrie, who would of thunk Bourque would pan out the way he is this year.....

Chara and Comrie are really the only guys that are underperforming with this draft.

The great Carlo Gambino ruled New York's Mafia, and i thought i was ruling the draft to the point i was planning my schedule around going to that game against Philly. But, as with Brownlee, Jason Spezza seems to be my bane. Falling faster than NBC's ratings in the great Leno experiment.

Great eye!It's just like a where's Waldo book.

Marc Savard is more fragile than an origami dove this year. Handle with care.

Also - maybe next year for the Zack Stortini's of the world maybe PIMS should count...

I'm 760. Looks like we've got a nice little battle going here.

It's like the last 2 players in Mario Kart who are racing to not be last. Actually, it's like the Oilers and Hurricanes this year, too. ha.

Mario Kart 64 was the one my friends and I played the most. There are few feelings of malicious satisfaction as launching a red shell at the dude in front of you.

I lost an entire summer of my life to Goldeneye. To this day, every time I go into a bathroom stall with blue doors I instinctively look up.

So now 2 events in the past week have confirmed beyond a doubt that I am getting old...

First - the guys on my line during shinny were both younger than the skates I was wearing.

Second - I have never seen much less played Mario Kart or Goldeneye.

Sigh...
