September 24, 2013: Take part in Lawren’s Fantasy Pilot Television League!
September 24, 2013 by Joseph Mallozzi
Well, that was fast. Last year, I lost interest in football about thirteen weeks into the season. This year, only three weeks into fantasy football league play, with my Snow Monkeys off to a disastrous 0-3 start, my enthusiasm has waned. My starters consistently under perform while my bench routinely over performs. Starters who put up huge numbers the previous week disappear or get injured when they’re in my line-up, while disappointments I sit break out. Clearly, the Fates conspire against me. Right about now, my passion for fantasy football falls somewhere between “couldn’t care less” and “don’t give a shit”.
It’s fortuitous then that my buddy, Lawren, has organized an alternate, non-football, fantasy league: a Fantasy Television Pilot League. This was the email Lawren sent my way:
I’ve laid out the list of the network fall pilots of which some have already had their premieres. Feel free to just write Yes or No beside the show whether you think it’ll get a 2nd season or not. Remember this is not based on the quality of the show (clearly) but the insane and sad reality of the world we live and work in. If a show get’s picked up or cancelled (pulling the episodes from their original dates will count as cancellation) your choice will be multiplied two fold. So +1 for a correct choice. -1 for a wrong choice. -2 if you bet against a show that get’s an early pickup. +2 if your correctly choose a show will get cancelled and has it’s airing cut short.
