A NationDrafts Champion is Born


To start off the year we decided to have another round of the always loveable NationDrafts!  Unfortunately, the pool ended without the fanfare that I feel that it deserved.  Things ended without our winners getting the day in the sun that they’re pale blotchy skin so desperately deserves.  With that, I present the winners of the NationDrafts pool.

Just in case you have no idea what the NationDrafts pool is/was, the goal was to pick the best team possible to collect yourself the most points possible.  As far as I can see, the only way to really win this pool is to channel the devil’s ability to tell the future.  Myself?  I finished in 102nd place – far behind any of the fine folks on the leaderboard.  Am I bitter about it? No, why do you ask?

Look at the class of heroes that we have here.  When I look at this list I can’t help but wonder what kind of magical powers they may have?  Surely, these guys have powers that are so beyond my earthly brain that I probably wouldn’t be able to comprehend it anyway.  When I see these point totals compared to my own (533), I see a bunch of people that apparently know something I do not.  Witchcraft? An alliegiance to the firey rings of hell?  I can’t say “no” with any certainty.

Regardless, I want to give a big shout out and congrats to our winners despite their alleged dealings with the dark one.  These are the best of the best, and each of these fine folks in the Top 10 will be receiving an email from me today to let them know about their prizes.

One thing that we are not cool with is our NationDrafts winner walking around with holes in their shoes.  As such, our first place winner will be getting a $1000 prepaid Visa to do with what he pleases.  Our 2nd place winner will be getting a really cool Anaheim Ducks jersey signed by none other than Ryan Getzlaf.  Our 3rd place winner will be getting a NationGear package to end all NationGear packages! Swag King Cole shall be your new name going forward.

For everyone else in the Top 10, I will be reaching out to you to see where you’re located.  Once I get confirmation, and track down your house on Google Maps, I will send you prizes that are appropriate for where you’re at.  If you live in Calgary, chances are you’ll probably get nothing.  It’s not your fault, I’m an Oilers fan and endlessly spiteful. 

For everyone else, I want to say thank you on behalf of the Nation Network for another great round of NationDrafts.  We’ll see you for the next instalment, and hopefully I will be able to summon the same dark arts that have led these heroes to victory.  Well done, Nation.
