welcome seapilots!  Are you from Seattle?  Ever see the Pilots in '69?

Fell in love with baseball listening to the Pilots as a nine yr. old on a transistor radio.  
Never went to a game or even watched one on tv until early 70's.
Real theatre of the mind and I can understand how the game captured the American
imagination in the golden age of radio.

I'll join. Sounds like fun. I can't claim to be much of a car man, but I do dig the music, so here are a few more songs you seem to have overlooked:

Radar Love, Turn the Page, Born to Be Wild, Slow Ride, Low Rider, Highway Man, One Piece at a Time, Cars, Hot Rod Lincoln, Little Red Corvette, Mustang Sally

Yeah, one or two. Or ten... at least metaphorically.

Yeah Radar Love!  They'll never be another Johnny Cash and the guitar lick in Hot Rod Lincoln need no introduction.
One of my all time favs is "Roadrunner" written by Jonathan Richman and was a hit for his band Modern Lovers.
I'll submit "Six Days on the Road" even though it's a truckers song it's the only song I can sing.

Sorry, but holiday travel plans now will make it hard for me to draft a full team in this league, so I need to pack my new Studebaker and leave.  Best of luck to you all and your shotguns of choice

Personally, I don't see a reason for leaving because the draft will likely take place after the holidays . . or, the Commish could/would hold it up until you're available.

Well, we had 11 sign up the first 3 or 4 days, but no one in the past week.  Hmmm.  Maybe I'll give it another week and see what happens.  If no more interest  by then, maybe I'll shut this baby down.  Personally I like the concept ... a unique progressive in varied 5-season blocks ... in theory, therefore, there shouldn't be any dynasties or cellar dwellers ... having a dispersion draft every 5 seasons (draft order based on previous results) should be kinda cool ... I think :)

Man I totally agree. PLUS it allows for just a 5 season commitment. If you don't found it fun. Don't re-up.
Cmon folks, ante-up and enjoys the 60's era players!!!
