It's A Draft Year!

The 2008/2009 Barilkosphere draft has been rather interesting this season.
There have already been three huge steals thus far, marked most recently with the surprise pick up of Loser Domi by Barry Melrose rocks, they traded up from the back of the pack with Melt Your Face Off for future considerations.
Earlier all of Leaf Nation won huge with the second over all pick in snagging, previously un drafted Canucks prospect Wrap Around Curl, who possesses an excellent skill set on all parts of the blogsphere and is known for her quick release and love of goalies.
First over all, of course, went to PPP who picked up "Jammies" Chemmy of the Darcy Tucker fan club giving them a solid one two punch down the middle that compliments their huge plethera of roll playing commenters very nicely.

Who will be picked up next? This is a very deep draft this year with several highly pursued bloggers itching for a chance at the big time. Offensive tallent like Blurr of the California Left Coast lock and Stud defenseman General Borskevski are still available. There is also dark horse picks like Sean of Down Goes Brown, who some scouts are toughting as the next James Mirtle and JaredFromLondon, an excellent aggitator with lots of offensive upside but his work ethic and disciplin have been questioned by some scouts.

Look for Blogs like Hockey Analysis and Melt Your face off to make some big named trades, while PPP is far from done. Rumour has it that they have their eye on Kim Jorn of Cox block to bolster their anti-media line. He Score He Shoot have been rather quiet latly, but are said to be activly shopping Moose.

Further updates as the come.

Skills to someday pay the bills perhaps.

I'm already plying my trade in two separate "sports", what with the music blog I contribute to.

One of these days I'm going to cash in... hopefully

Funny stuff. Any word on if Godd Till or MF37 have been left unprotected?

I think Godd has a NTC while MF37 isn't a free agent until next season
