DraftReview2012part2

 

The links above are to the first two parts of the Draft Review podcast, done by Iwan and I.  I say “first two” parts in anticipation of a third podcast: we’ll see if that ever comes to fruition with everyone out of town for the weekend.  The first part covers a quick recap of best weekend ever (including commentary on The Expendables 2) as well as a discussion of holdovers.  It lasts about 32 minutes.  The second podcast is over an hour, covering a breakdown of all the teams from worst to best according to the Commish Rankings.  Problem is, technical trouble struck as we were discussing the number 2 team, where we were cut off and it got too late to keep going.  So, for the number 2 team, there is about a minute of commentary, and then we’re done.  The number one team in our (my) ranks?  Not a word.  Tough to be at the top I suppose.  Anyway, I figure I’d post what we got before I take off for the weekend.  Enjoy!

Division Names Revealed!

It gives the Commish great pleasure to reveal the Division Names for the 2012 MLOM season, our 14th consecutive action-packed slugfest.   All action, all the time – that’s why this year’s division battle will consist of the clash of the iron wills (and iron bodies) of legendary action stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone!

Symbolic kings of the action movie genre, we bring this battle right here to MLOM.  And don’t forget their top lieutenants, Norris, Seagal, Van Damme, and all the rest.

Which will be king?   Let the season decide!
