Happy New Year everyone!
To celebrate the start of 2013, Pat and I thought it would be fun to do a fantasy snowfall competition (with inspiration from weather.com). For this year, it will be between the two of us, but we hope that in the future we can expand. We have a few ideas for that in mind, but for now welcome to Golden Snow Globe’s Fantasy Snowfall 2013!
Here’s how it works for this year. A few days ago Pat and I drafted 10 cities. Before the start of each month, we have to decide which 5 we want to be our starters, and which 5 to be on the bench. Starters get full credit, while bench are half. The team with the most snowfall at the end of April wins!
But of course, there is a catch. We must start all 10 cities at least once, and each city must be on the bench at least once. In addition, we each have 2 sleepers. These are cities that as of the 12/28 update were outside the top 25. The sleepers must each be used twice. We each can have both sleepers as starters in one month (but not necessarily the same month), in which case, 6 starters would be allowed.
So, without further ado, here are the teams for 2013! Note: This month’s starters are in bold.
|GSG Fantasy Snowfall 2013 Teams|
|Newark, NJ||Boston, MA|
|Pueblo, CO||South Bend, IN|
|Buffalo, NY||Anchorage, AK|
|Erie, PA||Cleveland, OH|
|Fort Collins, CO||Denver, CO|
|Green Bay, WI||Des Moines, IA|
|Spokane, WA||Madison, WI|
|St. Paul, MN||Minneapolis, MN|
|Syracuse, NY||Rochester, NY|
|Worcester, MA||Salt Lake City, UT|
Again, we’re just basically playing around with this for 2013. Whether we keep all these rules (or add new ones) in the future is to be determined. Though, the more people/teams we have in the future the less cities will be on a team.
I’ll try to do updates twice a month. We hope you enjoy following along!
