What happened to you, JJD?

And it's too late now, but does anyone know where I can find a list of NBA players by school?

Goddammit.

I scheduled the draft so I could do it from work after lunch. I've got two computers so I can look busy work on the other one while I'm drafting, and hey, it only takes about 45 minutes or so.

Thursday morning I've got my first draft going and while I show up late I've got a pretty good team going, until my internet connection starts acting strangely. I've got some guys in my queue, like Vladimir Radmanovic, just to remember they are there, and suddenly, I'm frozen in time. I can do nothing as I watch the guy drafting's clock expired to "zero" and his pick doesn't come up...I'm frozen, so I end up taking the Rad-man in round 7 (!) followed by three straight small forwards that were in my queue, which I wouldn't have minded except I already had two. Ah well, it's just a silly Yahoo! league and I'll surely get the internet bug figured out in no time.

Friday...another draft at 6:35 am. I manage to get in there and take Paul Pierce over Kobe Bryant, but that's about it. Hit the draft button...NOTHING. I want to take Zydrunas Ilgauskas at center and instead I end up with James FUCKING Posey! DAMMIT! Plus, now my printer is acting up and WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON HERE?!

FF to 12:50...still just sporadic internet activity. I watch helplessly as my first-round pick (#6 in order) is the sixth-ranked player...Kobe Bryant. Doubledogdoodammit. I wonder aloud if I can borrow DJFrostyFreeze's "Free Kobe" sig. Shawn Bradley's my center...I'll get some blocks, I guess.

POSTSCRIPT: It turns out that the marketing chick's brand-new laptop got a virus when she had her new internet connection set up at her house and it fucked up out network. What a pile of crap that is.
