Dream Teams:

If you could put any players, from any era, on the ice or field at the same time, who would make up your team?

Pick your dream teams for hockey and baseball.

Make a list of which players you would like to have on a hockey team and/or a baseball team and submit them to mig_rogers@yahoo.com. All dream teams will be posted here where participants will be able to vote for the teams submitted by others.

To wit:

1) submit a team of players for baseball and hockey. see samples below - note that for baseball, the team should be submitted in their batting order (starting line-up) with a relief pitcher who does not hit.
Note* You can submit a team for just hockey or baseball, if you don't like or follow one of those two sports.
2) Give your teams a name so they can be identified; all submissions will be otherwise anonymous until the final standings are tabulated. Deadline for submissions is May 15.
2) On May 16th, a link with all submitted teams will be sent out to those who participated asking them to vote for their 3 favourite teams submitted by others, with 5 points given to a 1st place pick, 3 points for a 2nd place pick, and 1 point for a 3rd place pick.
3) Standings for teams (based on the voting) will be posted at the end of May, showing how your teams stacked up against the choices of others' dream teams. Only then will teams be identified by their team name and their teams' owner (that's you).
4) There are no winners or losers. However, winners will be able to humm Queen's "We Are The Champions" in church, while the losers will be able to humm Beck's "I'm a loser, Baby" while mowing their lawns or shoveling snow from their driveways.
