Oh, if I had this draft to do over again... Can we do it again?
Not like, right now, right? At some point in the future?
Of course doing another comic draft right after the first is a silly idea. I just personally kind of wish we could pretend this one was practice and the real one starts tomorrow. Because obviously I was unfocused and did a crap job but NOW I'm into it and its too late to do anything.
I think that's actually my problem with these drafts. I'm kind of "warm up" sort of guy. If you play basketball with me I'm a different player when we first start and 20 minutes in. I need to get my rhythm and get warmed up. I think I work the same way with stuff like this. I start slow with projects but once I get going with them I find a groove and I can start flying.
These drafts are such foreign ideas (I mean I've never drafted super heroes before, have you?) that I think I just go in cold and don't get my wind until a week in. And by then you've already made the important picks so you're stuck. The only one of these drafts I didn't feel that way in was wrestling and in that case I had been watching a similar draft on another board for weeks and that's what inspired me to start it here. So I think I was warmed up for that.
So yeah... rant over. I just wish I had done a better job with the draft. I needed to run a few Hero Mock Drafts or something.
So, am I right to assume that we're going to do 7 match-ups a week for the first three weeks? If so, any chance of a preview of which teams will be going on in the first week so we can start talking them up?
I got really motivated and did a huge writeup for my three teams. They'll all be re-posted in the necessary showdowns, but I figured if anyone wanted to read the whole story, they're in the Your Teams thread as I edited my post under the actual teams to tell the story.
