100th Blog Post Draft Party Begins- GREAT NAMES ROUND

Greetings and welcome to the 2011 jaybarkerfan 100th Blog Post Draft Party. Each round will have a random draft order posted and a list of cards posted except for one round near the end which will be played under "mystery rules".  Each pick will have a time limit of 12 hours from when I put you on the clock.  If you miss your pick, the next drafter may jump up but you can jump back in as soon as you can get to a computer.

Round 1-Great Names Round
An appetizer before the main course. Some players just have Great Names or Nicknames-Neat Names-Awesome Names. This is a smattering of athletes that I have always thought had great names.

Coco Crisp 2011 Topps Heritage #38(Makes me wanna pour a big bowl of milk and go crazy)

John Conner 2010 Topps Chrome #C96(The Terminator-awesome)

Ed "Too Tall" Jones 88 Topps #266(His name really needs no embellishment)

  2. Let's go with fellow Indiana University alum Uwe Blab! Wait, did Blab graduate? Before my time, slightly.

    I mean, who can resist a 7'1" guy who averaged 1.8 rebounds in his NBA career?

    You're welcome, by the way, to the pickers behind me!
