Life: Live Fantasy Football Draft 2009

The past several years, my friends and I have been doing the Yahoo Sports fantasy football leagues. This year, we have a record 14 teams playing – so we couldn’t just settle for a regular online draft where we trash talk via chat room. This year, we decided to have a live fantasy draft, complete with the draft kit Mark found online at

I decided to recruit our friend Shibbs to help make the wings for the get together. we broke down almost 300 full wings (1 wing, 1 drummette = almost 600 wings) and made three delicious sauces: buttery hot sauce, sweet and smokey barbecue, and an asian-style sweet heat. Here are the ingredients for each, we kind of made it to taste so I can’t really say what the ratios were:

Buttery hot sauce: texas pete, butter, garlic powder, apple cider vinegar

sweet and smokey: cattleman’s classic, red bull flaming hot, chipotle tabasco (maybe other stuff too, I can’t remember)

asian-style sweet heat: mae ploy sweet chili sauce, siracha (aka rooster sauce), red chili flakes, corn syrup, ketchup, mustard

As always, it was BYOB – but I forgot to clear out my fridge as much as possible prior to the party, so I ended up with a beer fridge:

We even had to video-chat someone a player from North Carolina because he couldn’t be here. This is Mark setting up the video chat:

So instead of using a complex computer chat room to draft, we each went up on our turn and put the player’s stickers under our team names. We drafted for a total of 15 rounds, which took about 4-5 hours total:

and this is the final draft results:
