Up and running for the new season! If you were in last year you should be receiving a note from me to let you know that all is well and we're letting everyone play again.

And we're always welcoming new players. Last year was a goofy one - - - almost the entire field was eliminated by the second week, so we pulled an audible and restarted the whole thing in week 3.

Yes, we have the power to do that.

Hey can I get in on this?

Yes, it's 10 grand and if you wait by your computer I'll send you instructions for wiring it to my bank account.

Oh wait - I just noticed the date. This is the day that everyone can join for free. Lucky you. I'll send you the pool invitation.

And by the way, I'm willing to extend the "free entry" deal to anyone else all the way up until the first game of the regular season. I'm such a good sport.

If you want to join this fun pool, send me your e-mail address via PM and I'll have the pool send you the official invitation.

I always get kicked out of the Survival Pool early. Those "sure things" almost never pan out for me.

Did I see that you've already made your picks for the regular pool for week one Dan? I can't actually see picks, of course, but the commissioner note told me that you and one other have already picked! Talk about being ahead of the curve.

Yes to the name and yes to the password.

If you can't find it, I should be able to just send you a fresh invitation if you give me your e-mail address in a PM.

It appears that they have changed our group ID number again from last year's. Now I'm clueing in that they must change it every year.

Our group ID# (for you to find our pool) is 1048.

So try this link:

I am in! At first the old Yahoo was giving me attitude! Then I went into CBS, thank goodness for cookies on my work computer because I have no idea what that sign in or past email is.

I can relate. Even though we've been doing this for at least a decade, every year that I go back to get the league running again I have to jump through some new hoop and perform some magic trick to get back in. And I apparently am a slow learner because I just now figured out that they assign a new group ID# every year. Doh!

My user name last year was 'forgetspasswordeveryyear' or something like that. Made it one that I wouldn't forget for sure. Forgot it.

I too have to dance to get in every year.

But it's fun. I expect to have another perfect year.

you are an author.. you get an exemption for pencil to paper stuff.. but only because you were born before the invention of "notepad" or word.... or the computer... well maybe not that old.. they had big honking room sized computers in the 50's.. didn't they?.. senility is setting in..

Not exactly on THIS topic, but I talk to a lot of authors all the time and there seems to be a recurring theme - many of us still enjoy that sensation of putting pen to paper. I almost always do my initial notes and my outline with pen and paper. And science has even shown that when students take notes the old fashioned way - with a notepad and pen - they retain the information better.

I'm about to leave for a non-profit workshop and I have my spiral bound notebook with me.

Survived!


Here's hoping Seattle blows it for a bunch of you! Punished for taking the consensus pick.
