    Default Weirdest Place You've Made A Draft Pick

    Ok so we've all obviously participated in a fantasy hockey draft, and I am bettin' money we've all been " on the clock" at various times throughout any given day in any given draft and have found yourself " ourselves' in " weird" locations, such as in the pool as a text goes off, or maybe ironing clothes, or maybe something really outlandish. So, where is the " weirdest" spot or situation you've made a draft pick or texted in a draft pick to a league mate?

    ha! great qst...i don't know if either of these are weird, but once I almost got thrown off an airplane for not properly turning off my 'electronic device' as that device in this case was my smartphone and I was frantically refreshing and hoping to get my pick off...another time I was at a bachelor party knee deep in strippers and trying to txt in my pick while they kept stealing my phone and threatening to put it in places no smartphone should go
    Thats me on the street with a violin under my chin, playing with a grin, singing gibberish.

    I'll start it off since I was part of the inspiration for this thread.

    Today I made a pick in my sister in laws pool with my wife's phone. Didn't want to hold up the draft and of course wreck my phone in the process! Picks were Jared Cowen and Brandon Pirri for anybody who is curious.

    Normally I make my picks on the shitter .... With 2 kids sometimes that's the only place I get alone time.

    On another note I'm not that big of an A-hole to use my wife's phone as opposed to mine. My family is in the US on vacation and my wife is American with a US phone plan (free data). My phone would probably cost me $10 just to make a pick ... I'm dedicated, but not a $10 a selection.

    I conducted a football draft while in the visitors room while my wife was in labor. We knew she wouldn't deliver for hours. I won that league.

    Not sure if the link will work but we were out training one day this week and found cell service at the top of this hill in what you will hopefully see is the absolute middle of nowhere. https://maps.google.ca/maps?q=google...ed=0CCwQ8gEwAA

    I once drafted my entire team online while pretending to take notes on my laptop in the middle of a live 2 hour client presentation in the boardroom.

    At the start of the presentation I strategically took the corner seat of the long table so nobody could see my screen haha.

    Drafted an entire team 20 mins after stepping off a 30 hour bus ride through the Ecuadorian countryside, in Quito. Altitude sickness hit hard on the way in (or was it avian flu from all the livestock on the bus with us?) so I was trudging back and forth from the bathroom to my computer, liquids exiting from everywhere between rounds and the only solids I could take in were my picks (zing!).

    I won the league that season, but I was playing a group of newbies. #noregrets
