The Card Blog League is GO (minus 1)

Fortunately, there is a spot available in The Card Blog League.

Fortunately, there are two good candidates to join the league.

Unfortunately, neither candidate is still available.

Fortunately, Beardy and SpastikMooss both want to play.

Fortunately (for Beardy), he asked first.

Unfortunately (for Beardy), SpastikMooss remembered to call "Shotgun".

Unfortunately (for me), a decision must be made. The draft is in two weeks.

Fortunately (for me), I don't have to make the decision. Matt F. from Heartbreaking Cards of Staggering Genius is this year's honarary commissioner! (He was given the role when he opted not to play in the league this year. Suckah!)

Unfortunately (for Commissioner Matt), he needs to make the decision.

Fortunately (for Commissioner Matt), he can come up with some wildly awesome, mildly degrading way to decide the "winner".

Unfortunately (for everyone involved), hearts will be broken.

(Feel free to include your bribes for the Commish in the comments below.)

Uh oh. I think we missed something good when we were in hibernation.

Sorry I bipped you back, commish. I beg the league to have mercy on my poor hairy soul.

SpastikMooss said...

Man, I'm between a rock and a bearded place. This league is the league of leagues in my mind, and I've had my sights set on it since I first became aware of the card blogging community via (ironically enough) Heartbreaking Cards. At the same time, Beardy runs one of my favorite blogs, and I'm actually kind of surprised he wasn't yet in the league. If his blog is major league, my blog is like a Double A team.

Nevertheless, I'm game. Commish, please look back kindly on the giant Tony Gwynn/Kevin Mitchell heads I sent you past summer. And if it helps, your blog is the only one my girlfriend likes (because she thinks the name is awesome).

Wow! This is gonna be tough... I should probably let the commish know about this upcoming decision. :)

beardy said...

Thanks for the kind words Mooss. I know it's not the sexiest thing in the world, but if you wanted to co-manage a team with me, I would be down for that. You could even come up with the name.

SpastikMooss said...

Ah, I was tempted to suggest the same thing (minus the name haha). Depends...what are your thoughts on Kyle Farnsworth, the Starting Pitcher?

beardy said...

Only if we can have Audrey Huff on first.

SpastikMooss said...

Oh man, perfect. Maybe we can finish out the CI with some Edwin Encarnacion action.

I don't get to make anyone cry?

Good sportsmanship and cooperation has never made me so sad...8-)
