Ken's Brain Drain
Draft night 2005
Last Thursday night at Rookies Sports bar
, I conducted my 7th annual Fantasy Basebal Draft
. One helluva night. Four solid hours of drinking beer, talking baseball with a bunch of baseball geek friends and drafting a team of MLB players. Some of these guys I see but once a year, but by October, after 4 or 5 hundred postings on the Yahoo Fantasy Baseball
bulletin board, they are like your best buddies. An incredibly cool and addicting pastime. Fantasy Baseball IS what the Internet was invented for. My Team... the Jazzters. Baseball is almost here, and that's the best sign that Spring has Sprung.
I cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg – the phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid! Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Amzanig huh? Yaeh, and I awlyas thought slpeling was ipmorantt.
Pretty cool, huh?
Totally psyched! Initial discussions
went real well. 2nd round to come early next week. Sounds like great opportunity. Even has ties
to my favorite company
. More info to come as this develops.
