Looking forward to a fantastic game, guys. Seven classy Classicists battling it out for supremacy, with the leisurely timelines to allow us to be the gossipy Star Ambassadors we all are at heart. :)

Should be fun!

Just registering my mild level of jealousy at not joining this group sooner.

I wish you all the best and I look forward to qualifying for next year ;)

All of the fighters have entered the ring. Looks like they are anxious to rumble.

Gents, tonight on Monday Night Football are my beloved SF 49ers. I am heading out to play poker with the boys, drink too many martini's, and smoke a cigar or two while my team wrecks havoc on the St. Louis Lambs. Forgive me, but I shan't be confirming tonight.

While icing the kicker is an oft used technique in football, I assure you all I am not intending to psych you out by making you wait... ;)

The game has begun. Don't get too anxious for action if you are watching: 238 hours still to go in this deadline! :shock:

Somehow I don't think the entire clock will be used, but you never know.
