A few years ago my friends and I had a 12-man fantasy draft of ‘LOST’ characters that lasted an entire evening (we invited a few girls to join but strangely none of them showed up). We laid down very few ground rules and didn’t so much as even discuss what the goal was in constructing a team. If I drafted Kate, could I make out with her? Would Sawyer and Jack on the same team cause chemistry problems? Did every team need a member to type in 4,8,15,16,23,42 and press enter every 108 minutes? What the hell was the point of this draft??

Maybe there was no point. Maybe there was no resolution. Maybe the whole purpose was to spend time together and solidify life-long friendships. “The most important part of your life was the time that you spent with these people in that bar ignoring girls and drafting characters from ‘LOST’. That’s why all of you are here. Nobody does it alone, Jack. You needed all of them, and they needed you.”

Or maybe I clearly won the draft when I snagged ‘Smoke Monster’ in the 4th round and I only hung out with those losers so I could destroy them in a hypothetical fantasy draft. That sounds more likely.

Fast forward to last week – we held another fantasy draft and we need your help determining a winner. Here’s how this one worked:
