Fantasy Nordic Update

Fantasy season is upon us. The World Cup starts in four days. I have no idea what's going on!

You think I'm joking? Kershaw won a damned FIS race this past weekend, ahead of some non-scrub competition, like some "Soedergren" and "Hellner" guys. I had no idea. Neither did Fasterskier. If you're looking for a year to interrupt my Fantasy Nordic domination, this might be it, because I'm about to bid waaaay to much for Devon.

It gets worse. The women's race was taken by Kalla (shocking), but then Anna Haag, Anna Olsson and Ivana Janeckova (who?) managed to beat Kowalczyk, who finished a paltry 5th. Kowalczyk's done! Olsson is no longer a sprinter! There are women in the Czech republic!

I don't know what to think anymore, but I'm ready to overreact to early November performances. $1000 on Kalla!

In all seriousness, though, we just opened a 3rd public league over at Fantasy Nordic, and we'll start auctions next Monday. If you're looking for instant commenting credibility, you should join it and kick our asses.

Which, as should be abundantly clear, may not be that hard.

WTF I swear I searched the front page for "Kershaw."

I'm so confused, see what I mean?

Just a question on the bidding processes.

Do we bid blind and then the person who had the highest bid wins or will we all be able to see what the other guys bid ?

Anon: Bidding is blind, with bids being revealed after the auction is over. Winner pays the 2nd highest bid +1 dollar.

You are right, you had the Kershaw thing up before Fasterskier, I swear....but seriously, shouldn't you be worrying about CX season still? My first nordic ski workout is already penciled in for a day or two after Christmas. Luke S you better watch out fool, I am gunning for you.
