Of course not, I wouldn’t post them till after lock if I cared. They aren’t really designed to be GPP lineups but the last few weeks have been crazy. I didn’t even realize until after lock that I’d picked all morning games or I would have stuck it in a few early only tournaments.
honestly I didn’t say anything before just in case I coolered you! If you don’t mind, I’m going to ride it out a bit and see what I can do at slightly larger buying. So far so good! Steak on me next time you’re in TO!

Thanks Dave! You are so good, that I MISSED the late changes, entered your original lineup in the 100k spy contest, finished 22nd out of 1.1k and won $600 on my single $100 entry. Your amend3d lineup would have finished 4th beh8nd John racener for $3,000. I hope you don’t mind me riding your expertise!

nice work, dave, you’re killing it! Have you checked numbers against higher buyin head to heads to see if you’d be as successful? If so, you should be taking your Shot! I’d pitch in to your bankroll ��

Happy Thanksgiving. I survived this one since I had to prepare dinner (I don't cook). It went quite well and the turkey came out very good.

To celebrate Thanksgiving and since the weather is good I am playing golf at Lebovic Monday and Wooden Sticks on Tuesday.
lebovic is interesting. Owned by Jewish mobsters that launder money through the place. Played there last year with my dentist who goes to the same synagogue as the owners. He filled me in. The one owner drives a rolls Royce phantom and a $350k Bentley....

Considering I had 3 top 10 picks I don't think it's a stretch to say that I acquired the most high end talent in the draft.

Steelheads did well too, I think, except I'm not as high on Jay O"Brien.
I had the sixth pick. I wanted your guy, obv, Daniel, but didn’t even expect you to him with the fourth. Do like Kravstov, Kupari should be a player, o Brien could go either way, LOVE Veleno except have to wait for him, and Two-Last-Names might or might not pan out. But I did swear out loud when you picked fourth. ******.

I literally LOLd at the clause saying the sens get a first round pick if SJS trade karlsson to an Eastern conference team. I guess you have to protect yourself after th Hoffman fleecing...

That Humboldt opener last night was heartbreaking. Easy to forget the toll on the survivors. It was on full display last night.

We have a trade to announce that will bolster a future dynasty:

Cheap Thieves trade $5.00 in 2018-19

for

PK Dealers trade $5.00 in 2023-24
Should we maybe discuss a limit on these types of trades? Is there a rule to stop two GMs from trading $40 five years apart to give each huge bankrolls to take a run?

I think building would be fun if you got good at it but I'll realistically never log enough hours for that to happen, so I'm all for trying a different game with no building.
Hire a coach. (See article above)

Not here for an argument. I personally enjoy video games. But there's plenty of info out there about Fortnite and the way it's eclipsing every record for video games by a fair margin. In my house, with my 13 year old, it almost cost him his honours graduation from grade 8. After being warned in school about playing games, he still got caught playing fortnite on his laptop in class. No other video game came remotely close to anything beyond 'current interest' with him until fortnite came out. The first article is the long paper on the build characteristics of these newest games.

Evil? It’s just popular. There’s nothing vindictive or predatory about the game design. World of Warcraft was probably more destructive as a whole.
ill find the paper I just read on the science behind fortnight. Stuff like the music designed to keep you on task and focussed for longer. They tested it By playing it fir people doing ordinary tasks like office work and the subjects work longer and with more focus than with ordinary or no music.

Not a good night to be doing my job in Toronto. What a scene. For you guys that know the Danforth it started at that little sidewalk corner park on the north side of Danforth and Logan (I used to live on Logan right at Danforth). Across from the Tim Hortons. Moved west across the street. I’ve never seen that many shell casings at a scene before. We heard...rumour at this point for sure...that he may have been targeting the woman and just kept shooting. Pretty awful scene.

My nephew is 21 and loves soccer. He bet Belgium 11-1 and France 6-1 Pre tournament. I’m trying to teach him how to lay off money so he can guarantee a win. His response? ‘Why would I do that, Belgium is going to win.’
