Gave my vote to Mr. Mills because how can you go against the Durham Bulls and the Sandlot? However, I might have gone with Kirkman if the Globetrotter pick would have been allowed to stand. Am I being truthful or am I stirring the pot? devil

My ranking goes: Josh, Chris, Abstain, Abstain.

Another great episode. I'd love to sit down and have a beer and watch a game with all 4 of you guys, someday. Only wish I lived closer to NC than I do.

Maybe your army comes and maybe it’s too much for us, but it’s all on you. Because if we can’t protect the Earth, you can be damn well sure we’ll avenge it.

I had to vote for Josh. It was going to be Kirkman all the way, as I thought the Cleveland Indians (Major League) was clearly the #1 choice , but the Ghost Team (Field of Dreams) shouldn't count.

Mills wins this one by a good margin. I'd have to say Justin is a solid 2nd. Kirkman is 3rd. I'm not sure if the Ghost Team should've been allowed, but the Globetrotters are definitely nonfictional. And, I have Dan bringing up the rear. I liked the first two picks, but then it went off the rails.

I'm surprised nobody went with the "Mean Machine" from the Longest Yard.

can't wait to listen, but draft wise it came down ti kirman and mills.

Dan patriss-ed himself with the hurlers or whoever the hell they are... though I love the Gryffindor pick. Jacob was solid but I actively dislike the bad news bears.

Fictional Cleveland Indians is my favorite fictional sports team and I love Avg Joes BUT racing is meh and I am out on Field of Dreams.

On the strength of the flying V and Bugs Bunny (and Bill Murray) my vote goes to Mills.

I'm curious, why do you dislike the Bad News Bears?

I hope Kirkman doesn't mind a sympathy vote, because I am throwing one out there for him since he got robbed in this draft. I don't remember hearing a mention of what the boys were drinking this episode, but Dan needs to cut down on whatever he was having if it makes him think the Globetrotters are a real sports team. shake

The Hurl Scouts Riddle... It's from Whip It, a movie about Roller Derby. It's got a great cast and some heart to it. I think you would dig it tbh.

So...since listening to the draft I’m curious if the Jamaican Bobsled team from Cool Runnings would have been allowed?

Kinda funny, my family asked me the same question. I would think it's a true story so might have to be out. But Im open for discussion.

Here's my take on the Globetrotter debate:

Dan's ruling was correct. The Globetrotters are absolutely a real team. At one point in history, they were arguably the best basketball team in the world. Today they are still a real team, albeit one playing mostly (but not completely) fake games. Somewhat akin to a WWE tag team: real team, fake sport.

As it is my vote is for Josh.

Here's my top four of those unmentioned:

1. Cobra Kai
2. Chicago Cubs from Rookie of the Year
3. Hackensack Bulls from Brewster's Millions
4. ProStars - this one might get thrown out since it was based on real people (Jordan, Gretzky, Bo), and also because it stretches the definition of a sports team. It was sports stars on a fictional superhero team. A short lived cartoon, but one I remember fondly.

I disqualified it from my list based on the definition of Miracle.

Interesting how the tables might have turned if the Globetrotters pick wouldn’t have been disallowed. But I’m good with Mills winning as long as I beat Dan.

Were the Hickory Huskers not considered? They were my first thought about fictional teams.
