While it seems there has been nothing but bad news the last couple of years, good things happen every day. Great Plains Drifters manager Aaron Gray made the news this week for saving the life of an unresponsive infant. Gray was a medic in Iraq with the other members of the OIL.
Great job, Gray! Now, let's talk about that hair . . .
Great Plains Drifters manager Aaron Gray had never played fantasy football prior to joining the OIL in 2015, but that didn't stop him from jumping in with both feet. He has attended the live draft each of his two OIL seasons and almost shot someone at only one of them, so that's comforting. He's bringing only $250 worth of ammo to this year's draft though. Is that enough to kill all of us? I was always a "let-the-army-pay-for-my-ammo kind of guy," so I'm not sure. He won nine games in 2016.
Fun fact: Gray almost killed Finch at the 2016 draft (although I guess that fact wasn't quite as fun for Finch) and then spent the rest of the weekend being "the sleepingest motherfucker" Pyle had ever seen.
Aaron Gray's Great Plains Drifters finally have a logo and uniforms. They're based on the old High Plains Drifter movie. Gray chose number eight because his son was born in 2008.
The OIL's expansion conference is five members away from full participation in 2015. The potential members thus far are:
