Anyone interested in participating in an online hockey pool with GTOL users please respond. I think I can do it with even five of us.

Hi Mike
I am not up to speed on the players of today, but my son can likely help me out, so I am interested.

OK....us guys at work are doing a pool....I want to start a pool with us guys and gals....once you've confirmed that your interested, I'll post a link for the form where you pick 20 names from a list - forwards, defence, goalies...you'll highlight or underline your picks and email it to me...I'll enter 'em in and send you the pool link and password...you can do trades and trash talk each other...It'll be fun, man...It only costs me $20 to start the pool and it's on me.

do u need to know anything to play along? I love a good game and I would play but "my Domi" just retired... who can I have as my captain now?? Not only did he leave the game but carrying on with that Hussy... sorry, I'm still bitter! Hockey will never be the same for me :lol:

I barely know who any of the players are these days I don't think I'd be much fun there. what do u have to do, pick a dream team and it keeps track of their points, etc. and you see who wins?

Well, you're given a list of players to choose from...you can check online like at nhl.com to research your picks..but it's only for fun so there's no presseure to win plus you can change your picks on the fly

Still looking for participants in the hockey pool.

I'm in

Postby colbuki » Thu Oct 26, 2006 10:35 am

Ok, the fact that I am in should be enough incentive to get a few other participants. I know there are folks lining up to best me at games and you know what .... this is the one they can do it in! now if it was a poker game... look out but hockey pool.... here's hoping for some beginners luck!

thanks Mike!

I notice you left Barry off the list Don... I know, I know he's a baseball fan but he ought to be sticking his head up soon! :lol:

come on Jarry we'll even take you!

Just in case you don't know "Hockey" is that game they play on the ice. Their "bats" are called sticks and they get thrown out for hoisting over their shoulders. It's like every hit is a fast bunt. The "balls" are called pucks and they are flat on 2 sides and black and the players aren't allowed to touch them with their hands unles you are the goalie. (kinda like the catcher ) :lol: :lol: :lol:

when you really stop to think about it Hockey is just like baseball with bigger uniforms and less grass. Who said I didn't know anything about hockey... oh yeah right, that was me!

Here is the list from which to pick.

http://www.xanthios.com/hockeypool.pdf

Select one name from each box for a total of twenty names. Decide how you want to get the names to me (e.g. email or pm). I'll load them into the online pool and away we go!

Sorry Don - my hockey days are long behind me - I've gone over to the dark side - figure skating is the name of my game now.

Mike - when y'all start up the figure skating pool count me in!

OK....the numbers are from the start of season.....the form is confusing (at least for me at first), so we need 20 names, 3 per row....I'll rig it for me to win anyway...

Pool participants:
Neil
Kim
Gloria
Don
JG (I think he's a kid from Joseph Gibbons)
Meeeee
others???Hey Covert (operations) put your name in the pool

Ok I've sent my picks in. Seeing as I don't really follow hockey and only joined to keep Mike from bugging us (and it was free) I will now reveal my strategy.

Picked all Leafs, then anybody whose name had a Z in it and then teams that are my favourite colours.

You guys just watch me clean up at the end of the season :wink: :o
