Cogratulations to the BlueBallers for pulling out the victory in the first ever rukind fantasy football league. I will add to the prizes and include a couple rukind picks.

Sounds great to me! The thing I liked most about this league was that there was no bullshit or bickering involved, whereas in leagues past that sometimes is the case. Just a testament to the good natured people here, I guess!

I'll throw whatever someone wants in. Let me know if y'all have any ideas, but for starters, since I'm from Maine, I figured I could get something that is says "Maine", like lobsters, something from LL Bean (if you have a fireplace, they have some really good smelling kindling (sp?) from Bean's....mmmm....), or Maine beer, etc. Let me know what you think & I'll get it!

Congrats again to BlueBallers!
:cool: [/i]

I offered a tie dyed something or other. I would just need to know a size and color preference, if any. I agree, this was by far the most enjoyable fantasy league I've been involved in.

I don't know enough about basketball, but maybe we could do a baseball league too?

I always do a baseball league w/ buddies, but I'm totally down to do another one with you guys. As for basketball, I'm a die-hard Celtics fan, but I just don't have the stomach to watch basketball right now. Partly because the C's suck so bad, but also partly because the "game" of basketball is pretty poor at the present time, imo. Too bad, too, because I really do want to watch, and try to, but every time I do I end up yelling at the TV or changing the channel because of how pathetic it is. The C's, the most storied franchise in all the NBA, have been reduced to a mochary over the last 20 years, with VERY few bright spots in that time.

We do, however, have one of the greatest quotes during this era: "Larry Bird isn't walking through that door, Kevin McHale isn't walking through that door, and Robert Parrish isn't walking through that door anytime soon! And all the negativity in this town sucks!" Fucking Pitino. If it weren't for him and Len Bias (and Reggie Lewis, to a certain extent), we'd still be the darling of the NBA. Grrrr!

Here's the "complete" list of prizes that were either offered at the beginning or as the season progressed. If you're listed as offering a prize, please shoot me a PM to confirm that you're still good to go. I'll modify this message with confirmations and any prizes that I may have missed.

--tie dyed something from wisedyes confirmed
--Sunshine Daydream DVD and 10-31-80 DVD from jck_strw confirmed
--an email address with the @rukind.org and some picks from phpbb
--a bottle of 100% de agave tequila brand from Crazy9.5Fingers confirmed
--Dead/Phish show from Others confirmed
--a "Maine" prize from Shakedown_04092 confirmed
--Greate Lakes Dortmunder Gold - Carlisle Terrapins
--local brew - blueballers2

Once all 8 prizes listed are confirmed, we'll wait for blueballers/ded1hed to pick first and then we'll go from there.

Sound good?

There has to bee some way to send booze via snail mail. How else could you join a beer of the month club. I guess you need to talk to you local post office or go through UPS or something.

Sending booze is no problem. The only thing I am going to need is proof that the person I am sending it to is 21.

Actually, ded1hed, since you pick first, if you see something you like that's already been confirmed, feel free to select.
