I need something to keep me distracted in the hockey off-season so a draft with a 24 hour time limit on picks should hold me over for a long while.
I know that's a selfish reason, but that's the sum of it. It'll help, somewhat, with the depression and thoughts and I'm going to be somewhat selfish here and start the draft right now. I'll send out a mass e-mail now to let everyone know.
I mean, whatever help I can get right? Fantasy hockey is a very big hobby for me. Means a lot to me actually, funnily enough.
I can relate to this, probably not to the degree you may. Have you ever tried any online gaming, MMOs especially. They have helped me in the past, and occupied me for years on end. I still play them actually.
