Introducing the soon to be championship team of the CBF Football League. Wish them well. Except for R. Caldwell, who will be cut on Wednesday. Notice I did not draft any players from the 49ers.

Our league has 11 teams this year, a drop from the unheard of 14 teams last year, so our draft went a little quicker than previous years. However, we still had our share of shocking draft picks and unorthodox strategy. One team picked 3 WR's (Moss, Owens, Walker) with their top three picks. One team went one step beyond the hook-up (QB-WR combo) and went for triad (QB-WR-RB). Not one, but two kickers (A. Vinatieri and S. Graham!) were taken in the 9th round (15 rounds total). And the amazing Drew Bledsoe lasted until an auto-pick selection in the 14th round, a total steal!

In any case, it was a fun draft. One team has already been mathematically eliminated.

In other sporting news, the CBF Softball team crushed its way to a 17-1 victory in the playoffs. The other team's coach was heard saying 'Playoffs? Playoffs? Are you kidding me?' Championship game next week. The early line has CBF favored by 12.

(Edit: since I am now a loser and have a bunch of free time, I participated in an online yahoo football draft, where I find even more shocking draft strategies. one guy took WR C. Johnson with the 4th overall pick. Another guy drafted a kicker in the 5th round. A third team drafted 2 kickers by the 9th round. My chances of winning this 10 team league are no worse than 2-1.)
