After an intense couple of hours, we completed our inaugural "Waiting for Stanley" hockey pool. Needless to say, most guys picked home team favorites instead of the best player available. What followed, was a some of the nastiest trash talk I've ever witnessed. Earl Sleek, of the famous Battle of California, and Tapeleg, of Jerseys and hockey love, really took a pounding and had only swear words and bitter comments to help ease their pain. I was nice enough to make a trade with Earl to even up our teams and keep him interested...at least until the season starts. Poor Tapeleg was tired, grumpy, and unwilling to move a single player...poor Tapeleg, could be a long long season.

WFS will be publishing pool stats all year.

Your lies are sad, Hodge, most likely brought on by a severe hangover, and draft regret.

Aw, you forgot about Beaner crying herself to sleep.

Amazingly, no hangover...strange, considering the amount of rum consumed.

My draft regret was quickly solved with a trade move on SleeeeeK. I'm saying sorry now for taking advantage of his inexperience.

Beaner is, oh so proud of her team...picked entirely by herself. Good job lil buddy, I'd be happy with your team over some, like.... most everyone else. LOL

I think that my strategy of picking D last is still going to prevail by the end of the year. My forwards kick your butts!

When the swelling of your head subsides you will be able you clearly see how average your team really is.

Barring any injury, my team is far from 'average.' Looking at it just now, I can't believe I scooped so many great players!

If Malkin's okay, my team's going to deep-fry all your asses.

Just sayin'.
