After an intense couple of hours, we completed our inaugural "Waiting for Stanley" hockey pool. Needless to say, most guys picked home team favorites instead of the best player available. What followed, was a some of the nastiest trash talk I've ever witnessed. Earl Sleek, of the famous Battle of California, and Tapeleg, of Jerseys and hockey love, really took a pounding and had only swear words and bitter comments to help ease their pain. I was nice enough to make a trade with Earl to even up our teams and keep him interested...at least until the season starts. Poor Tapeleg was tired, grumpy, and unwilling to move a single player...poor Tapeleg, could be a long long season.
WFS will be publishing pool stats all year.
