Draft Day - Technical Problems, Decent Picks!

Wow! It's 8:15pm PST and have yet to make the 16th pick in our draft. Let me say this a different way, we started our draft at 7:00pm PST - that is right, 15 picks in a hour and fifteen minutes, are you kidding me? We can thank the good folks at CBS Sportsline for all of our troubles tonight in the Cornerstone Conference.

To say the least, these guys had some serious technical difficulties. For instance, I arrived to the draft room 15 minutes early only to experience JAVA console took 10, yes 10 minutes to load! Fortunately, everyone else in our league was having the same sort of difficulties: draft room would not load, chat would not refresh, draft picks would not show. So, after some quick troubleshooting and determining that Sportsline was incompetent, Jay Worth got a serious conference call going and we all were able to get started.

And magically, at 8:30pm PST the problem seemed to disappear. Suddenly we could actually see the room and make the draft picks. Then we were able to actually ahve a draft and by 10:00pm all picks were completed!

As expected I did take Kobe Bryant with #2 pick. The rest of the draft provided plenty of drama, and below is how our picks unfolded......my team is called "BioWaste" and you can see how it went. Let me know what you think - I must say I do like my chances this year!
