I think back to some of these drafts now and then; wild that it's been 13 friggin' years.
I'm a maaaybeeeeeee (idontreallywannaknow) for Great Works Redux, will let y'all know and try to not be a stranger 'round these parts
would you consider partnering up?I'm not well-rounded enough to draft in this, but I'll follow along. I had a lot of fun doing so last time.
I'd have to see the categories. Are they the same as 2009? IIRC, you and I are the same age but maybe our strengths are in different areas.would you consider partnering up?

I was actually thinking that way myself - could be a good pb&j ying/yang kind of deal.I'd have to see the categories. Are they the same as 2009? IIRC, you and I are the same age but maybe our strengths are in different areas.
missed the non-judging proclamationYou'd be great at this. Without having judging, I think it would be a better discussion just of what people love and why, which is how wikkid would have liked it the first time. You have a breadth of knowledge that is as wide as almost anyone's. But I won't twist your arm.
I'll shoot you a PM and we can see if a relationship is worth pursuing.I was actually thinking that way myself - could be a good pb&j ying/yang kind of deal.

Congrats!! I've dated married women before, so my romantic choices aren't any kind of morality pinnacle.are we talking about a draft? I just got remarried two weeks ago.
Open to changes on the categories. This was a spontaneous idea so I haven’t fleshed it out. As I’ve been re-reading the thread I’ve seen a lot of confusion over the composition category, for one.I'd have to see the categories. Are they the same as 2009?

kidding of course; it’s just I’ve wanted to post that for about 8 days
Man this was fun. Leaving on vacation next week and wouldn’t be back until later in the month. FBGs is blocked at work nowadays, which makes my time here lesser.
I could probably make the draft work on my phone while at work.
Can we just do stuff I think I'm good at?Open to changes on the categories. This was a spontaneous idea so I haven’t fleshed it out. As I’ve been re-reading the thread I’ve seen a lot of confusion over the composition category, for one.

I actually asked Bobby Lane what "composition" was. He said he thought it was classical music, but I'm not sure how you define that.
I think it was meant to be classical, but then wikkid was judging both this and "song" and had very specific ideas of what would be good in each category. There was a long discussion of "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik" being better, he said, in song rather than composition. Also a lot of chatter when Yankee23Fan took The Empire Strikes Back!

Where do you live,because if it is Chiacgo, I am playing in a Charity Golf event there next month, and I would love for you discuss these rankings in person, and call me a "Good Boy"
PM me and I will give you a phone number to reach me
Are you ####### kidding me?
Why should this clown think he can be insulting and overbearing with no repercussions?
Haha "charity golf."
Duke, there is almost nothing you have typed that doesn't crack me up.

soooo glad you picked this - didnt want to go this way with my 1st rder, but woulda had to if it had lasted. ive been to the site of all the Seven Ancient Wonders except Babylon & my guide at Giza told us that backinaday they were smooth as glass with limestone which has since fallen away & legend had it they were blinding to look at then. the Great Pyramids & a mass balloon ascension from the ground are the only things i've experienced (well, maybe Donna D'Agostino too) which i cannot capture with words.https://footballguys.community.foru...tent_id=467331&content_commentid=10292996 Doug B said:
Here's my pick:
1.5 (5) - The Great Pyramid of Giza, Building/Structure
This can never be bumped enough.
I can't commit to a Great Works Draft solo, but would like to team with another, where my participation rate falls in the 33-40% range. Might even be interested in a threesome.
The fun begins when the judging begins. That's when the fur starts to fly. Alas, I can't commit to judging anything, but it would be great if we had it.
Hey wait what’s going on? If we are teaming up, I’m in for whatever.

Sadly we aren’t getting started right away. Stand by!Works out well. I am staying in Chicago all week. Wife is working virtually from here but I literally have nothing to do. West Fest is a couple blocks away, I will probably see Protomartyr play tomorrow night. Drafting would definitely be something I could squeeze in lol.
Damn. Standing by.Sadly we aren’t getting started right away. Stand by!
I'll start a new thread next week and see if we can put together a crew.
Reading through some of the earlier thread, I see that wikkid wasn't opposed to judging, but didn't want it in the hands of one person per category. Rather, he wanted drafters and peanut gallery to be able to PM someone with their votes. This is what we did in the Captain Cranks charity drafts last year, and I think it would work. Kinda the best of both worlds?
I like this idea. Judging is a thankless job, but it's even worse when it's one judge, and they think teen movie is solely *for* teens when the rest of us think it's *about* teens.
(although I do like it when a singular judge - who happened to be Wikkid - factors in menace.)
This might sound radical, but maybe postpone Great Works II until January, when attention spans are peaked.
I am competitive, determined, and doggedly so
I have been dunked on by some of the best ever, and was back down scoring on them in 4 or 5 seconds. You Pout, or you play.
I am driven, and love the fact that Basketball and Football are decided on the field, not like gymnastics or diving, which depends on the fairness and equity of judges.
When we lost, I lost, and I have a bitter taste, and more motivation to improve and win the next time.
I spent inumerable hours alone, shooting, dribbling, lifting, trying to get better. I hate to lose.
If striving for excellence, in any undertaking, and despising seeing some try to subvert the effort is "schtick" then I am guilty

Lets just say I played longer, and probably with more profit. A lot of it deals with getting into the right situation. Lot of luck, for all but the best.
