So far they’re not ALL kickers from Australia. Great start!

Ooo. We got a punter… from Australia. I’m still excited.
If Kyle Walters picked him he’s gotta be good.

And in a blink of an eye it’s over. Now I’ll be able to exhale and get back to my daily routine… once I work off this nervous energy. It’s a darned good thing that there’s no more CFL drafts coming up today. My system couldn’t handle it.
i got some news for you… lol

What’s that? More excitement yet to come?! Oh boy oh boy oh boy…

We’re on Central Time here on the Prairies. TSN3 is covering the first two rounds starting at 7:00 PM. Looks like I picked a bad time to quit sniffing glue.
Turns out the Global draft is a good opportunity for American Samoa.
yea my brain was thinking PDT but my fingers typed EDT
I’m just glad you don’t live in Europe. I’d be thoroughly mixed up with the time difference.

When your fingers start thinking for themselves…
…it’s best to be on your toes.
I was happy to see THREE Swedish players drafted. and not one was kicker.
I’ll give the writer a pass on not knowing how to find Ö on his keyboard [alt + 153] or [alt + 0214], but it’s Örebro, not Örboro!
Samoa has so much talent for such a tiny place
you could probably draft an entire team with the resources found there .
