4:41 EST – Worst live blog ever?
4:50 EST – ……
5:15 EST – If you think this live blog is brutal, you should actually be part of this draft.
5:18 EST – Sebok is falling asleep. Nordberg is beating his head against a wall.
5:20 EST – Sebok instant analysis: Top to bottom, side to side, my team is mighty dominant. I would lay a large amount of money on this. Fo sho. Nordberg’s team is easily the weakest. His picking style was laughable, at best. Seebs out.
5:25 EST – Nordberg instant analysis: Well I think I have a good team. The success of my team hinges on the Internet players I took. Sebok: Who’s your team? Nordberg: I don’t remember. Oh I did take Jordan Rich. He’s a pain in the ass to play against. So he must be good.
