Anyone have any interest in a free fantasy baseball league made up predominantly or entirely of Wieners? I've had good luck with Yahoo's free league, but I'm open to any suggestion short of "Get Bent".
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasure. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most money from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship.
The average age of the world's great civilizations has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through the following sequence: from bondage to spiritual faith, from spiritual faith to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependency, from dependency back to bondage.
There are as many as 20 teams allowed, and I figure it's first come first serve, so there's room for everyone who's expressed interest so far. Figure 24 players a team, just like the real deal.

I'm game for a live draft, if we can get everyone to pitch in for it. We still have six slots for other wieners who may want to play. If the roster isn't full by Friday, 5p Eastern, I'll go ahead and schedule a draft with who we have.
I don't really want to debate his hall of fame merits right now ... but if he gets in, I will wish then that it had happened this year. Wright Thompson at ESPN has a nice column (sports.espn.go.com) up about O'Neil that I would point anyone to.
