He's was born in Germany(1879) and was 51 before he became a US Citizen...just wondering how he fits in an American History draft?  :dunno:

That's Ok

 

I posted them for consideration and got silence, then asked a second time and got one reply.

 

I figure nobody gives a fock.

 

But yeah, anybody that earned US citizenship qualifies. I think on the sports team category, Canadian teams in the NHL, NBA, and MLB should also qualify.

So wait a minute. What do you mean Canadian teams qualify?

The player is American, but plays for a Canadian team? Ok. No problem.

The player is canadian, and plays for a Canadian team doesnt count right? Like say Wayne Gretzky

No. I mean... Montreal Canadians or Edmonton Oilers or Toronto Blue Jays.

 

We've got a Sports Team category. It's the third from the bottom.

 

Not Wayne Gretzky.

I'd much rather TBBOM send the pick to somebody else when he goes to bed. That didn't set too well. It was within your rights to grab Madison if you wanted him.

 

You got jumped in the first round legitimately because you were slow but the second round thing was BS.

I was just trying to keep things moving. Sorry.

If 90s wanted that pick, of course its his.

Ok, can one of the stateside folks volunteer to be my pick collector please? Based on past drafts, this is going to be a nightly thing.

I was just kidding no big deal. TBBOM knows that pick is fair game if I wanted it. Also since you pick either right after me or before depending on the round, I can gladly post yours with mine whenever you feel like you won't get your pick in before you sleep.

For Volty


2.8 Martin Luther King Jr. - Reformer

and

3.1 Mark Twain - Fiction Writer



So I guess Mark Twain moves to 2.8 and Volty has a make up pick when he wakes up.

I'm hopeful a name I put in as 'alternate' snakes back around to me later. That'd mean that 5 Points (and everybody else) would haveto let it slide twice and I like to keep my cards close to my vest.
