|Congratulations to Deni for winning this year's WNBA Playoff Fantasy Game. Rick, Cheryl, Sharon K, and Maggie all had very competitive Scores and with a couple of good breaks any of them could have emerged as the Champion as well.
And congratulations to Ryan and Rick who tied for First Place in the Second Season Fantasy Game. Both of them are legendary WNBA Fantasy Game Managers. Cheryl and I were fortunate enough to tie for Third Place and we have had some classic battles of our own over the years.
I have a history of sponsoring Groups and participating so when I created the Playoff Fantasy Game it was done with 3 purposes in mind:
1. To provide a WNBA Game for the Playoffs since no one else was offering one.
2. To create a Game that a majority of the Managers would like better than most of us liked the Pick One Challenge.
3. To create a Game that Rick and I could keep Score for by hand.
I would like to thank everyone who participated in the Game and especially each of you who hung in there until the Playoffs were over. The WNBA gave us a great Series of Playoffs this year. Hopefully that will translate into even more fans in the future.
Thanks very much to Rick for all the quality time he devoted to this Game by serving as the Official Scorekeeper. He did a truly outstanding job. And thanks to Mira (iverson) who helped both Rick and me although she did not participate in the Game this year.
A special thanks to RebKell for providing all of the web space that we used in order to make this Fantasy Game possible. Rick and I both sincerely hope that the majority of the Managers did enjoy participating in this Game.
We have several Points Contributed Groups for Fantasy Sports, but the original one is a Weekly Group for the NBA in the ESPN Fastbreak Challenge. As many of you know by now, that Game is in some jeopardy of disappearing.
Several of us have already posted messages asking ESPN to offer the Fastbreak Challenge again this year. We would all appreciate anyone else who might contact ESPN in an effort to keep the Game alive. Here is the link to the ESPN Mailbag: http://proxy.espn.go.com/chat/mailbagESPN?event_id=22737
If you think that you might want to join one of our NBA Groups, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can invite you to join when we create the Groups later this month for the upcoming NBA Season.
I will close by stating that many of us have been together in the Weekly NBA Group for several years now. We have become sort of like a large family in fact our Motto is We Are Family --- The Best Fantasy Group Around. I came up with the first part of the Motto and Rick suggested the second part.
Several Managers have stated that our Weekly NBA Group is their favorite of all the Fantasy Groups they have participated in. We have a Bulletin Board where many of us create regular Statistical Features. And a majority of the Managers try to help each other with suggested Line-Ups and other ideas.
If this sounds like a Group that you think you might enjoy being a part of, please let me know. And again thank you very much for the time you invested by participating in this Fantasy Game. I wish each of you Good Luck both in the Fantasy Games you are playing and in your life as well.
