2009 Sactown Royalty Draft Contest


I see a tall, soon to be rich stranger entering your life.


Last year, we held the first annual Sactown Royalty Draft Contest.  Dozens of StR faithful matched "wits" in the hopes of correctly guessing the thought patterns of Geoff Petrie. Ball In Cup took the prize (a still yet to be designed t-shirt) with his shrewd choosing of Sean Singletary in the 2nd round. All in all, never have so many guessed so wrong for so little. Patrick Ewing, Jr.? Really?

Well, the stakes have been raised (though not the prize). Welcome to the second annual Sactown Royalty Draft Contest. This year we again have three picks, #4, #23 and #31. Utilize your cunning, guile, and inside knowledge, and you could walk away with the same yet to be designed StR t-shirt that we promised "Cup" last year. Talk about limited supply! (By the way, my idea for a t-shirt design last year – "Sactown Royalty…We drafted Sean Singletary and all I got was this crummy t-shirt" – was voted down at the Board of Directors meeting…stupid rbiegler!)

The rules? I tried to keep them simple, as I know my audience well –

  • In the comments section of this post, let us know who you think the Kings will draft with each of their 1st round picks, and then their 2nd round pick. Whoever gets the most picks right wins the next Sactown Royalty T-shirt (coming soon!...?).

  • In case of a tie, the correct selection of the #4 pick will be the tie breaker. The 2nd tie breaker will be the #23 pick. The 3rd tie breaker will be who posted their selections first. Ailene Voisin does hold veto power based on who she thinks is the sexiest, but TZ holds veto power over Ailene, so it’s all good.

  • One entry per person. Once you have entered you may not change your picks, unless you can prove that you are Chad Ford. The advantage to entering early is the tie breaker edge, while the advantage of waiting is any extra bit of news that you may pick up between now and Thursday.

  • Entry deadline is this Wednesday, June 24th, midnight PST.

Now go forth and think like Geoff. Speak in low, measured tones. Call out the kids in your neighborhood for a 2nd workout. Fill your gas tank to the full mid-level, no exceptions. You can do this. You will do this. You must do this.

Good luck.  (UPDATE - 79 into the pool after the jump - )
