Drafting Bad (ly)

Ok the draft is at hand.  The order is set:
  1. Noah Chestnut (@noahchestnut)
  2. Brandon Valeriano (@drbvaler)
  3. Robert Chasen (via fb)
  4. Rodger Payne (@rodgerpayne)
  5. Chip Gagnon (via fb)
  6. Kristy Caruso (@siteseers)
  7. Caitlin Fitzgerald (@caidid)
  8. Will McCants (@will_mccants)
  9. Kelsey Atherton (@athertonKD) 
  10. Wendy Wasserman (@wjw26)
  11. Sara Mitchell (via fb)
  12. Mark Jarvis (@markdjarvis)
The way to draft is to enter a comment onto this post.  You will each have five minutes to make a pick (please be faster than that).  If you do not pick and I do not have a list of your preferences, you get skipped until you show up.  As it stand now, I only have two lists (Sara and Brandon).   

I have these names as possible characters to draft:

  1. Walt/Heisenberg
  2. Skyler
  3. Walt Jr./Flynn (dying under either name counts for both)
  4. Holly (the baby--yes, we have no humanity--Walt lost his, and we lost ours when we rooted for Walt)
  5. Jesse
  6. Hank 
  7. Marie
  8. Saul
  9. Steven Gomez (the DEA sidekick)
  10. Ted Beneke
  11. Skinny Pete
  12. Badger
  13. Todd (formerly of Friday Night Lights)
  14. Andrea, Jesse's former girlfriend
  15. Brock (Andrea's kid)
  16. Lydia
  17. Bogdan (the guy who used to run the car wash)
  18. Kaylee (Mike's grand-daughter)
  19. Group Leader played by Jere Burns--from Jesse's addiction treatment group
  20. Gretchen Schwartz (one of Walt's former business partners)
  21. Lawson (Jim Beaver, the arms dealer)\
  22. Old Joe (the guy with the wrecking yard)
  23. Huell, Saul's bodyguard
  24. Declan, the new drug dealer
If you have others, that is fine, but you may have to explain who you chose.  Remember, you only get the big three points if they are visibly alive in the last episodes.  Folks who never show up in the final eight get bumpkus/zip/zero/nil.

Ok, Noah is on the clock

With the first pick, Noah picks Jesse Pinkman! (sorry, I discovered his email--he is moving).

Second pick is Brandon with Saul Goodman.

Rob, you are now on the clock

Rob Chasen said...

I pick Kaylee

Chip said...

I pick... THE BABY, Holly!

Steve Saideman said...

Ok, we have several folks who did not show up thus far. I will enter their picks when they show up--so they slide in the draft. Seems like my FB friends are far more into this than my twitter friends. Or twitter people have lives...

Looks like the game will get smaller or I will need to do a supplemental draft

Wendy said...

whatever - my dog has to pee -- let's do this thing! ;P lol

Kelsey Atherton said...

Huell

The Bostonian said...

Can I pick? Sorry! Dinner ran late!

Rodger A. Payne said...

Didn't know about proof of life.

Rodger

Wendy said...

Hank! I live on the edge.

Steve Saideman said...

Rodger, you go and then Caitlin

caidid said...

Is it my turn? Hank! Why is is it using a 100-year-old profile for me here? Wtf?

Steve Saideman said...

Hank is taken, try again.

Sara said...

You all realize this is picking people who live right? LOL

caidid said...

This phone-drafting on blogger is not good. Skyler then, since Hank is gone.

Steve Saideman said...

I should have bet in Vegas on who would cause me to say "shots fired" first. Sara, you go next, Caitlin's got one minute left.

Steve Saideman said...

Sara's list says Brock as her first choice. So, we have had quite a run on kids, and Brock has been near death before.

Steve Saideman said...

Oops, Sara picks Marie, not Brock

Sara said...

I want MARIE

Mark said...

Old Joe and Lydia.

Where do I collect my winnings?

Sara said...

Can you tell us who is gone now?

Steve Saideman said...

You did, with Walt Jr. a.k.a. Flynn

Wendy said...

Since Sara STOLE my 2nd pick ... I'm going for Skinny Pete.

Rodger A. Payne said...

I sent my picks via email, just checked the results via cell phone. Did I get a pick?

Steve Saideman said...

Did I acknowledge receipt of your picks? I cannot find them on either of my email accounts (please say you didn't send them to my old Mcgill address).

Steve Saideman said...

Kelsey missed his picks so Caitlin gets Andrea. Rodger, enter your first pick here.

Chip said...

Walt, obviously he's not really going to die...

Rob Chasen said...

I pick good old reliable Gomey (Steve Gomez)

Steve Saideman said...

Brandon picks Bogdan, the former car wash owner,
Noah is going to pick from the scraps, I think.

Steve Saideman said...

I screwed up on Caitlin's second pick--she picked group leader, so Andrea is still available

Rodger A. Payne said...

Sent to: steve_saideman@carleton.ca

Not sure what I have left.

But that was before I knew about proof of life.

Steve Saideman said...

Going late means you can revise your list. I have you down for Gretchen and Lawson unless you tell me otherwise.

Kelsey Atherton said...

Brock

Will McCants said...

Badger bitches!!!

caidid said...

Aw man, totally missed that "proof of life" thing too! Definitely world have gone Andrea instead. I'm a dummy.

Steve Saideman said...

Will is late but present--what is your next pick, Captain?

Anonymous said...

Out of the ones remaining since I am slow...
