Apparently I'm a gamer -- hence being here. I've had the Donkey Kong theme stuck in my head since about 1995. It's not as cool as it sounds. It's kind of like hiccuping for that many years.
I'm pretty much a deadbeat Liberal Arts graduate from U of Illinois -- uhm Springfield campus. Started off as a computer science major and switched to English Literature. Why? Because I'm an idiot and I'm still looking for the job that made the switch worth the time and money. I did take a year of Elementary Japanese, so maybe I can BS a translation job. But only if I'm talking to school children. How insulting -- "your understanding of the language is that of a retarded kid!" So I guess that skill only comes in handy for catching one out of four words in any anime I watch and a good laugh when people mispronounce words.
Just finally in August joined the high-falooting "next-gen" with a purchase of the 60gb 360. I always said if a Tales game came to the 360, I'd finally buy the damn thing. Had to eat my words but I'm enjoying it so far.
Systems own: N64, Dreamcast, DS (x2), PSP (x2), 360 (finally), Wii, PS2, and a TG-16 (unfortunately not working)
Apparently I'm a huge Tales of fan -- hence getting the 360 for Vesperia and my Klarth avatar when I signed up. But Repede's too awesome to pass up.
Currently playing: Tales of Vesperia, Viva Pinata, Soul Calibur 4, Final Fantasy IV DS, Mana Khemia, Out of the Park Baseball 9, Sam and Max Season 2 (yeah finally got around to that), Downstream Paniac
INTRODUCTION POSTS (if you're looking for even more about me)
Yeah yeah I know -- most of you aren't big sports fans and this isn't the right place for it but I really don't venture into the forums too often and I don't see any sport-ish topics there anyway. I'll post one there in a day or two.
But let's get right down to it -- anyone here interested in potentially doing a fantasy pool for hockey next season? And potentially making it a keeper league? Right now I'm just polling interest but I find its best to nail these things down quickly. I loved trying to put together a football league a week before the season last year. More headaches than its worth.
Ideally I'd love for 12 teams but gotta do with what you can get. Rules will get set up later and ideally a draft is done a little after free agency starts. But nothing's set in stone, and we'll discuss that at a later time (particularly after I come back from my vacation this week).
So there's no commitment. I'm just looking for hockey fans in the community and particularly those hockey fans that have done leagues before. Just hit up the comments if slightly interested. If not, I don't really need a whole bunch of 'hockey suxxor' comments -- though I'm sure that will just invite them there.
