Campanas (3/5)

  1. For those who did not see the 2022 Fantasy Baseball thread, we are looking for one more in our league. Please take a look at the settings and buy-in to see if you are interested. Thanks!
  2. Update: We have 11 teams and looking for one more. If you are interested, please contact me. Our live draft is in 10 days. Thanks!
  3. Was this on NPR? I heard the same piece. One of the people discussed to play Don Corleone was Laurence Olivier. Supposedly, this news really pushed Marlon Brando to take the role.
  4. Hi everyone, We have a fantasy baseball league that started in 2008 on the Cigar Aficionados forum where each member put in a few sticks with the winner taking the lot. Since then, the league has evolved to a private cash league that costs $51 ($50 to the pot and $1 to Yahoo!) with the top 3 and regular season winner splitting the pot. Right now, we have 7 of 12 members paid, 1 empty slot, 1 unresponsive member, and 3 others who have not paid, but likely will do so. That means we have between 1-5 slots available for new comers. If you are interested, please post here and I'll send the invitations accordingly. Here are more details of the league settings. Thanks!

  5. Let's guess the next stretch goal. I say an 8 x 10 pic of Ken signed with XOXO. 😍
  6. Not a single mention in this thread, interesting. Doesn't mean it's bad, maybe just not much in quantity?
  7. I think ideally, all of us would like two copies, one for reading and one for collecting. I think there's a collector side to all of us here. I remember visiting the LCDH in Cancun and seeing a copy of the MRN book in shambles due to how often it was read by patrons of the shop. Part of me was at peace since great books are meant to be read, but part of me was in pain to see the book in disarray. For this, I only have the means for one copy. I guess I'll have to put on rubber gloves when I read it.
  8. The price is not bad considering by November 2022, the price we pay now would probably only be good for a box of Por Larranaga Montecarlos!
  9. I just pledged as well, Collector's Edition! Will be spreading the word too. Good luck to us all!
