On Second Thought: Elisha FUCKING Cuthbert. In the fourth fucking round! Damn you, little brother, damn you.
Summary: Well, we're 2-for-2 with unforeseen drafting situations. "The Loveseat Loophole" (hawking the rules to draft a celebrity thought to be ineligible) changed the game, due to a poorly worded dual-eligibility rule. Here are the relevant passages, as previously written (it has since been altered):
- Also, the former leads of shows in syndication qualify.
- The reason for this is that syndication means there were at least 100 episodes, and often establishes a celebrity's stardom.
Farceface got sweet retribution with Panettiere, Reeser was my fourth-round target all along and everyone else just made good picks. Great value at the bottom here. TV is clearly thin on top, but solid everywhere else. Even AH5, who I had to shoot down five times on the phone before he thought of someone who wasn't chosen, scored well with Courtney Cox.
Bonus point for Intell, who entered Pulliam into his text message drafts before we started, and sent it to me LITERALLY the second after I had texted him to say he was up. Oh, and Dirty picked a stellar "Ms. Irrelevant." Word to Maxim.
