Wicked Chops Podcast: American Idol Top 24 Finalist Draft

Katharine McPhee or Julie Zorilla? We debate in the latest Wicked Chops Podcast.

This one might go down as the best poker podcast of the year.

The Entities plus special guest Jeff “Slim” Holsey held their first annual American Idol Finals Draft.

The concept is simple: Chops, Colin, and Slim conducted a snake draft (order randomly determined) selecting eight American Idol hopefuls. A scoring system was put in place. Breakdown and analysis (and bedlam) ensued. The results are in the below podcast or after the jump.

Who drafted the best team? Who are some sleepers? Weigh in in the comments section.

And rewatch a great Katharine McPhee vid shoot from RawVegas.tv here.

    You want comment? Sure I’ll give you some…

    Really?

    “Who drafted the best team? Who are some sleepers? Weigh in in the comments section.”

    I mean; Really?

    I hate to break it to you guys, but nobody fucking cares about American douche bag Idol! At least not in your poker fan audience. If I want coverage of some lame douche bag show like AI I’d seek it out in a forum geared towards that, and NOT in a poker environment. Get it?

    What’s up with all this cross content bullshit? How hard is it to stick to poker? If you’re so hard up for AI why don’t you make a separate podcast aimed at that and call it “major fucking douche bags with 70’s style haircuts yapping like a bunch of fucking yentas about some lame ass ‘reality show’ that nobody REALLY cares about” podcast?

    That way, when I download your podcast to my iPod via iTunes, I’m at least given the option to NOT FUCKING LISTEN IN, instead of as now, start listening to the podcast and some 10 minute quick roundup of poker gossip, only to find out that the ‘meat’ of the podcast consists of some gay garbage like ‘American Idol’. I mean, REALLY?

    Get a fucking clue! I’ve lost all respect for you guys; Not that I had a lot from the beginning, but still…

    I think what George is trying to say is that he loves Colin’s team and thinks Thia Megia in the 6th round was a steal.

      For those scoring at home:
      Chops: +4
      Slim: 0
      Colin: – 1

      Chops is deep but not sure if there’s a winner on the squad. Slim needs Abrams to pull out victory and had a good late-round selection with “Baby lock them doors.” Col needs Lauren Alaina to finish 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.
