Lost and Out of My Mind League Draft

Ok, I have a working name for the game: Lost and Out of My Mind.  Still looking for alternatives.

The draft will commence at 9:30, and will be kicked off by Anubis Oracles posting his pick in the comment box, followed by the Ginger Genocide (Steve has yet to give a team name, so I am taking liberties, inspired by the new MIA video). 

I have received three lists thus far, so for those folks I will be posting their picks unless they show up tonight. 

Remember, you can trade your picks.  So far, no action on that front.


Good luck.

I like the name you picked! :)

Steve Greene said...

I've chosen a name: "Plain-bellied Sneetches"

Sara Mitchell said...

My team name is Yoda

Steve Saideman said...

Greetings, game players and stalkers. We are just about ready to go.

Wendy said...

Yay!

Steve Saideman said...

Chip, go ahead you have five minutes or less.

Chip said...

Hurley

Steve Saideman said...

The Plain-bellied sneats is now on the clock

Steve Greene said...

Jack!!

Steve Saideman said...

Jacob of Lockean Provisos goers next and picks Kate.

Next are the Constants

Yoda said...

So predictable!

Anonymous said...

Sawyer (sorry Wendy!)

Steve Saideman said...

Tabula Rasa is next

Wendy said...

Damn you all! OK, my pick is Desmond.

Steve Saideman said...

Tenor Boy (Zach) is next

Steve Greene said...

Too slow-- this ain't the NFL Draft. We need a shorter clock.

Steve Saideman said...

There is a parallel discussion over on facebook on my status about the game if anyone is interested.

So far, Wendy is bitter about losing Sawyer.

Doc has not provided a list so unless he shows up, he will have to pick from the folks remaining after everyone else has picked--is that diabolical or what?

Steve Saideman said...

Zach as a minute left, if not then he has to pick when he shows up. If not at all, then he and Doc get whatever is left.

Wendy said...

Yes, I am very bitter. I hate you all.

The Constants said...

I'm with you, unless Tenor Boy -- are you time traveling or in your sideways universe?!

B-Rob said...

its on!

Steve Saideman said...

Next is Brandon and he chooses (via a list he gave me): Aaron, next is Doc.

Steve Saideman said...

Steve, it will move faster now that I know who is here and who is not. If Doc Jensen does not show up in the next five minutes, then I can speed through his non-picks and Zach's, and we can move pretty quickly. It may slow a little bit as we get past the obvious choices.

So, what do y'all think of the Aaron pick? Very interesting. But risky if we are in two worlds, as Aaron is onl y in one.

B-Rob said...

ahhhh, but perhaps he isn't wink wink nudge nudge... SAY NO MORE!

Wendy said...

I think the boy's gonna live, in both worlds ... Good choice.

Chip said...

Aaron is in both! he jsut hasn't been born yet in the sideways world!

Steve Saideman said...

Excellent point, but if he is not yet born, then I will have to figure out how to count him.....

Chip said...

but i think he'll be bornby the end, Claire's pretty much ready to pop!

Steve Saideman said...

Doc is making a house-call apparently, Sara, so you are up. Then Ben has two choices and then back to Sara as we snake around.

B-Rob said...

well, that all depends on your stance on what defines life...
Let the pro-life/pro-choice debate begin!

Steve Saideman said...

I concur, Chip, but just raising another complication for the fun of it.

Yoda said...

I want Richard Alpert!

Wendy said...

Jacob is doing his cork/wine bottle speech on the island right now. And I am uncorking a bottle right now. Coincidence?

Steve Saideman said...

Ben, want me to use your choices or will you go ahead?

Chip said...

how about half points if he's not born yet and if claire hasn't had a late term abortion...

Brandon Valeriano said...

One thing I know about tv, the baby never gets it

Wendy said...

Good thing Claire didn't live in Oklahoma ...

Steve Saideman said...

Ben, you have one minute and then I put in your original choices.

B-Rob said...

I'll take Jungle Boy for 1000 Trebek!

Is he Aaron? Is he Locke? Is he Jacob? Is he the MiB?

Only time will tell!

Steve Saideman said...

Ok, Ben, your next choice is Claire, right?

B-Rob said...

and for my second choice, i will take mama Claire Littleton!

Steve Saideman said...

Ok, Sara, back to you and then Brandon and then Wendy since Doc and Zach are in absentia

Yoda said...

My next pick is WALT!

Steve Saideman said...

Ben takes some gambles as we don't know who jungle boy is or even if he is real. And Claire is likely to die on the Island and perhaps in childburth as well.

The Constants said...

I can't believe the Doc is MIA. I heard from one of my FB friends who grew up with Dan Snierson-- had a whole connection thing going on...

Steve Saideman said...

Brandon, you are here, so you want to pick or shall I use your list?

Steve Saideman said...

I am disappointed by Doc, but he wanted to pick last anyway. So, he can pick after we have all picked. Takes some of his advantage away.

B-Rob said...

I am young, but am I foolish?

Brandon Valeriano said...

Just keep picking from my list. I like Walt as a pick, pretty sure bet he lives in both realities.

Steve Saideman said...

Ok, Brndon picks Sun.

Steve Saideman said...

Wendy, you are next.

Sara Mitchell said...

Brandon we have similar strategies because I was going to pick Aaron & Walt :-)

Wendy said...

Drum roll please - I'm picking dear old Henry Gale. I mean Benjamin Linus. :-O

Steve Saideman said...

Outstandingly fun choice, Wendy, now you have to root for some serious redemption. Plus Doc picked Ben as a possible candidate!

The Constants are next.

The Constants said...

ohh... that was my pick- can't believe no one picked him sooner! Guess you got me back!

Steve Saideman said...

The Snake system can bite back, as the Constants found out.

The Constants said...

Jin

Steve Saideman said...

Jacob picks Frank the pilot, Steve G is next.

Steve Greene said...

Is everybody here on facebook? It's getting hard to keep track of actual picks among all the conversation. Was thinking we could converse on facebook and save the thread for picks. Or maybe I'm just being a pain.

Chip said...

my wife can't watch the facebook thread... she's not a friend of steve's.

Steve Greene said...

Sayid!!

Steve Saideman said...

For my FB friends, if you go to my status line for earlier today when i mentioned the draft, we have a string of comments there

Steve Saideman said...

We are going multi-program with comments here and fb, Chip. Your turn after Steve just tossed his second draft pick down a well.

Chip said...

Jae Lee is my first pick

Steve Saideman said...

Wow, going obscure. Wasn't he thrown out a window?

Steve Saideman said...

I have a pick in mind that you guys are all overlooking, but will have to sit on it.

Chip said...

Daniel Farraday / Widmore !!

Chip said...

Jae Lee is the baby isn't it?

Steve Greene said...

Damn, damn, damn! Thought Daniel was mine!

Miles.

Steve Saideman said...

I am busy--someone go to the lost wikipedia and see if Jae Lee is the kid or the supposed father.... Chip, that is your job...

Steve, you are on the clock.

The Constants said...

who's turn is it?

B-Rob said...

crap, daniel was miiiiiine Too!

Chip said...

that should be sun and jin's baby as my choice,any mercy here???

Steve Saideman said...

Miles, it is, and Jacob picks Rose as he was going to pick Miles but Steve grabbed him (thanks for thwarting Jacob).

Wendy said...

I think it's ok to count Jae as their baby.

Yoda said...

Leave me some good ones!!

Steve Saideman said...

Sure, we will give Chip the benefit of the doubt to the Balkans scholar who is unfamiliar with Korean names. (although I could be wrong ;))

Chip said...

well technically it is the old boyfriend who was thrown out the window it turns out. But my intention was to pick the baby...

Steve Saideman said...

The Constants turn.

and I think we can take back Chip's tiebreaker that he had earned for the break we are giving him. The dumbass award for the second round goes to Chip.

Chip said...

thank you all... those korean names are a bitch!

The Constants said...

Whew... the constants pick THE CONSTANT: Penny!

Wendy said...

If the Constants steal mine, I'm going to be PISSED!!!

Wendy said...

She was on my list, but not the steal. I'm wondering if this is who Steve was referring to --- I pick ... JOHN LOCKE! :D

Steve Saideman said...

That would have been my first or second round pick--Penny. Not a candidate but a survivor.

And Wendy picks another half-dead person.

B-Rob said...

Is John Locke pining for the woods?

Wendy said...

Yes, us heartless bitches profiting off the shitty economy live on the edge ...

Steve Saideman said...

Brandon picks Eloise! Sara, you are next.

The Constants said...

Yes, Penny was always one of my top picks, but I went with Jin because he "may" be a candidate... David probably would have went with Penny for second pick.

Chip said...

dang, I wanted ELoise!!

Steve Saideman said...

I wonder if your wife is following this closely enough--you like the gray haired spunky ladies?

Yoda said...

I pick Charles Widmore.

Wendy said...

I'm kind of hoping Widmore dies. (Sorry ...)

Steve Saideman said...

Sara picks Widmore, who is sure to die on the Island with so many folks gunning for him, but likely to live in the new LA?

Ben, you are up, and you have two picks. You only gave me four, so you have to make the next two choices.

Lisa Anubis Oracles said...

I'm a grey haired spunky lady!

B-Rob said...

I will take Zoe and Sarah Shepherd

Steve Saideman said...

Ok, so we now know that Chip digs older chicks. Good to know. Thanks, Lisa for joining us. And for putting up with Chip.

Brandon Valeriano said...

I am currently watching Hot Tub Time Machine. Hoping that reality provides answers for the Lost world. Its not working.

Steve Saideman said...

The young one goes for the hot older ladies. Not a surprise there. Indeed, three of his four picks are of a type.
Sara, your last pick.

Steve Saideman said...

Brandon's study of time travel is a season late.....

B-Rob said...

hey hey hey now, Zoe isn't a mom, as far as we know...

Chip said...

older than who??

Wendy said...

Oooooh, send me his pic! Cougar roar!!!!! (j/k ...)

Steve Saideman said...

Eloise is older than we are.

Yoda said...

My only hope for a candidate is that Smokey takes Jacob's place, so my last pick is SMOKEY!!

Chip said...

yikes!

Wendy said...

Good answer. You'd make a good lawyer.

Steve Saideman said...

Ben, all are older than you by a decade or more. I was watching Sheila Kelly on LA Law before you were born.

Chip said...

dang@!! smokey.

Yoda said...

By "place" I mean wreaking devastation on the world :-)

Wendy said...

I'm going with Vincent the dog. No snarky remarks, please ...

Wendy said...

oh shit, did i jump ahead of someone?

Steve Saideman said...

Sara rolls the dice with Smokey. very impressive. Very dicey.

Brandon picks Dr. Chang, who we know is alive in LA, but we really don't know what happened after the bomb went off on the Island. Nuked, I think.

Chip said...

woof

Steve Greene said...

Damn, I thought I was going to get away with Vincent!

Steve Saideman said...

Wendy, Vincent is a much beloved choice, and you stole him from Steve. Nice job. Predicable given your fb updates, but still nice.

Constants, you have one last choice.

The Constants said...

Is it me?

Steve Saideman said...

Yes, it is you.

Yoda said...

I almost took Dogen. We know he's alive in the LA world anyway and he appears relatively safe. But the same goes for many other characters who died on the island but exist in LA (Libby, Charlotte, Shannon, Boone, etc.).

The Constants said...

Ilana, for the win!

Steve Saideman said...

Good point, Sara, but then again, John Locke fits into that category as well :)

Steve Saideman said...

Ilana, another one-lifer.

Jacob's last choice is, how romantic, Bernard. So Jacob has Rose and Bernard. What a softie. Too bad he didn't get Vincent to have the whole family.

Ok. We have Steve and then Chip and we are done.

B-Rob said...

hey now, emillie de ravin is only six years my senior. With my charm and smarts she would be no problem... :p

Steve Saideman said...

Yes, but she is Australian, so that puts her out of your league.

Brandon Valeriano said...

Now I am confused. Thought Dr Chang had to survive in both worlds since he made the videos. He also needs to lose his arm.

Yoda said...

Penny & Desmond's child is looking good :-)

Steve Saideman said...

Time travel is confusing, Brandon. We can debate for the next couple of weeks who lived after the bomb, but Chang should be dead.

Wendy said...

Steve, are you going to post everybody's picks somewhere so as characters DIE we can laugh at each other, and make silly comments, etc.?

Steve Saideman said...

Steve G, you are on the clock.

Steve Greene said...

Really torn between Nadia and Pierre Chang. I'm going with Chang.

Yoda said...

Didn't Brandon pick Chang?

Steve Saideman said...

Change was chosen already.

Brandon Valeriano said...

According to Hot Tub Time Machine, time travel is easy. Just need lots of Whiskey, Chevy Chase, and a hot tub.

Steve Saideman said...

Chang was too.

Steve Greene said...

p.s. Sorry for the slow last pick, I missed that you had picked Bernard on behalf of Jacob.

Steve Greene said...

Sorry about that. I did a search, but messed up. Alright then, the romantic couple of Sayid and Nadia

Steve Saideman said...

Chip, you have the last choice. Rock us with your wisdom.

Jacob T. Levy said...

Kate, Frank, Rose, Bernard? I'm happy with that. I won't get The Chosen One, if there even is a Chosen One, but I'll bet I get four verified survivors.

Steve Saideman said...

Yes, Wendy, my next blog post, tomorrow, will scout each team and consider their chances. I will bring on the snark, as I know you would want me to do.

Chip (Anubis Oracles) said...

i'm nominating for another term of eternity.... Jacob!!

The Constants said...

Thanks for coordinating Steve. I am off to Oprah tomorrow. Looking forward to next week's episode and to see who gets knocked off! Hope it's not us.

Steve Saideman said...

Nice gamble, Chip. Thanks for playing folks. This is going to be heaps of fun. I will email the two missing folks and let them know they have to pick from the dregs.

And I will post tomorrow the results of the draft and a scouting report of each team's chances.

Chip said...

So I've got Hurley, Korean baby, Daniel Farraday/Widmore, and Jacob

Steve Saideman said...

And my pleasure, guys.

Steve Greene said...

That was fun. Off to watch Glee on the DVR!

Wendy said...

why do i feel like i'm going to be snarked the most ...

thank you Steve - great idea - this is gonna be a fun month!

Chip said...

Thanks Steve, this was great! Looking foward to your snark. I've preempted a bit with my facebook status just now...

Steve Saideman said...

Yep, Chip, you have a great team.

and no, Wendy, probably not you. I will probably tease either Jacob or Steve the most. Just because.

B-Rob said...

That was Great! Thanks for bringing some light into the deep, dark and depressing time that is Exam Period at McGill!

Now how bout some Polar Front Theory, any takers?

Chip said...

I'm just bummed I'm going to have to wait a whole week after it's broadcast to see the finale...

Steve Saideman said...

Oh, and thanks for warping my blog's stats for the day ;)

Steve Saideman said...

Oh, and you guys forgot at least one sentimental favorite that I would have picked. But I will wait until Doc and Zach pick before I reveal that one.

Wendy said...

Damn! I wanna know NOW. Ok, we'll wait. Is it Juliet? Charlie? Libby? OK no, we'll wait.

Well goodnight all. And good luck!

Brandon Valeriano said...

Is there a waiver wire period? I want to drop my last pick and take a free agent.

Steve Saideman said...

I don't think so. I said no waivers in the rules. But I may re-think if the rest of the folks think it is ok. Certainly no pickups after the next show begins to air.

But you will have to wait until our two missing players get their pick of the dregs.
