Owner Interview: Geese2128

Los Angeles Blue Crew

WIS Name: geese2128
First Name: Doug
Home State: Ohio
Age: 38


What do you do when you’re not playing HBD or working?: 
Golf, way way to much golf.

Favorite Teams: 
Cincinnati Reds, Cincinnati Bengals & The Miami Hurricanes.

Choose 4 people you’d like to hang out with for a night (why?): 

Bill Clinton(fairly sure we all know why), Peter Edward Rose(listening to story after story after story), Roger Clemens(childhood sports hero), Adriana Lima(VS Angel).

Funniest or dumbest thing that you have done in last few years: 

This last Saturday. Went to the Ohio State/Penn State game in Columbus but the tickets were still in Cincinnati. Now I owe a HUGE favor as I had to talk a friend into driving up our tickets.

Most Memorable WIS moment: 

Completing my first full season in WIS knowing it could only get better from there...

HBD owner that you respect/fear the most (Why?): 

Mikebr13 in my other league, Majors. Just seems like every single season he is able to make a trade or acquisition that makes his Team substantially better. 

If you could change one thing about Sweet Lou, what would it be?:

More good clean smack talk between Division rivals. First weeks LA Times headline: Los Angeles Blue Crew starts season(8) 7-0 after completing sweeps in Salt Lake & Salem!

If you could change one thing about HBD what would it be?: 

Coach contracts would last longer than 1 year. Worse part of the season is wasting time fighting over minor league coaches. Also, I do not have any brilliant ideas on how but the Draft should & could be so much better.

Season 8 Win Floors

New York Empire must win at least 58 games
Syracuse Spitfire must win at least 58 games

Everyone else must win at least 55 games

New Orleans Voodoo Queens (Preseason Preview)

New Orleans Voodoo Queens 


We flunked out on all of the Free Agents that we went after.. Really no new additions to this team. I will probably have to set very low pitch counts for my starters and take advantage of my solid bullpen. 

Win Prediction: 88 (Division Title)

Owner Interview: Letchkins

Chicago Racketeers

WIS Name: Letchkins
First Name: Jason
Home State: California
Age: 32


What do you do when you’re not playing HBD or working?
I started teaching yoga and rock climbing this summer. (It's not really work, it's fun. I'm an Engineer by trade)

Favorite Teams: 

Niners, Red Sox (I lived in Boston for 6 years after college)

Choose 4 people you’d like to hang out with for a night (why?): 

Mike Tyson (He'd be a blast, have fun stories), Jennifer Love Hewitt (simply for eye candy and some random fun karaoke in the middle of the night as she's apparently huge in Japan), Quentin Tarantino (As he's got to be an interesting dude based on every movie he's ever made, I'm a fan) and Michael Jordan (simply because he'd be the asshole comedic relief and is one of the most amazing athletes ever).

Funniest or dumbest thing that you have done in last few years: 

I got really drunk last Halloween and tried to organize a foursome with my fiance and her two best friends. Really fits both.

Most Memorable WIS moment: 

Winning my first and only HBD title a loooong time ago. The Tsunami were a rag tag bunch that just happened to fit the engine before they fixed it. Lots of power and speed and not much else.

HBD owner that you respect/fear the most (Why?): 

I unfortunately don't have any new rivalries yet, but in Ichiro, Heinzkill and I are starting to have one on the field.

If you could change one thing about Sweet Lou, what would it be?: 

More trash talking / involvement. Most of the talking has been mostly just drama thusfar.

If you could change one thing about HBD what would it be?: 

Individual steal settings, I hate my 10 speed, 10 BR guy getting CS all season long when the rest of the squad is fast.
