I just texted @Jalm and told him he was on the clock. He's out on the boat and asked me to post his pick for him.

Jalm's 1st pick is Clay "The Carpenter" Guida

Waited long enough... I'll check in the morning and see if @Death responded with his choice.  I'll check at 6am(et)... or 4am(mt).

I'm not against being the commissioner per se, I've just never been involved in a fantasy league of any kind and I imagine there's some minutia I'm unaware of.  If no one else steps up in the next day or so to start a third league I'll probably do it.

Alright pick time limit changed to 12 hours...but that means his time is up at 2:30am MST....if @Deathsquid hasn't picked @Kalibo can make his pick
