Fooch's Note: Ninjames accidentally scheduled these for 3pm instead of 3am. I'll post them now since we might as well have some links to enjoy. I'll have a new Big Board poll shortly.
Morning folks. Ninjames here, bringing you your links ON TIME! Anyway, the draft is getting closer and I just want to pass out and wake up in two weeks or so when it's time. Will somebody give me a courtesy call? Anyway... I have a few links for you, nothing major, but it's good reading, so you'll read 'em and you will like them. Also, if any of you are harassed by a guy on here who claims to be from Norway and London and Scotland... you know, average height, bad teeth, gloomy looking bloke? Yeah, be sure to tell me about that. Alright, so that was a bit away from professionalism here but what can I say, I'm suffering from a bad case of sleep deprivation accompanied by hallucinations. So, here's some links!
