Perhaps a blog is not the best internet technology for tonight's draft, but it will have to suffice. At 9:30PM EDT, Anubis Oracles will be on the clock. He will have five minutes to post a comment on my blog naming his first draft pick. Once he does so, lil Steve (to be named Ginger-ocide if he does not provide me with a name) picks next by posting a comment on the blog. If people take less than the full five minutes for each pick, this can speed along. And for those who cannot be virtually present, I will post the top ranked character left on the lists they provide me. Those picks will speed up the process.
Strategic players will think a bit beforehand about their preferred characters--to come up with a rank ordering or draft board so that they can pick without panic when their time comes.
Oh, and please feel free to post snarky comments about people's choices as we go along. Just keep updating/re-loading the blog page. And folks can use facebook as well to poke fun at each other, but the blog is the official site of draft-age, sponsored by a micro-brew to be named later (how I wish that Blue Moon was a micro-brew and not a Coors company).
So far, I have one list. Please send me your lists or let me know if you will be virtually present.
And if you have questions, ask away.
Oh, and Tabula Rasa posted this on FB, giving away whom she is likely to pick at #5.
Apparently, she has not realized that some deception is usually part of this process, so that people do not steal your pick before it gets to be your turn.
