Mark you calendars, gentlemen. The poll to determine our draft date showed overwhelming support for a date of Sunday, August 24. Therefore, a second run-off poll is unnecessary. As we get closer to the date, we can determine the time and place. But, for now, keep the date in mind as you make plans for the month of August.
Since a lot of us have to do a lot of scheduling in advance, let's determine what day we're drafting this season.
The first game is on Thursday, September 4. The Saturday before that is August 30, and the Sunday is August 31. But that is Labor Day weekend and always seems to hurt our attendance. Saturday August 23 and Sunday August 24 are possibilities, too.
Vote in the poll below. If the vote is close, the top two vote-getters after one week will be the two choices in our run-off election to determine the draft date. That poll will also last one week.
Hangovers manager Adam Duffy and Arrogant Americans manager Justin C. Cliburn recently struck a deal with HelmetNation, LLC to produce official helmets for each team. They arrived today, and the men couldn't be happier. Each helmet features "OIL" above the facemask and their respective team names along the bottom of the rear of the helmet.
Congratulations are in order for Adrian Peterson, who won the OIL's March Madness-style tournament of 2014 players. His victory is no surprise since he is consistently one of the most reliable fantasy running backs around . . . and because he's a former Sooner.
