How About a Virtual Hockey Pool?

We had a couple of no-shows at the planned post-BarCamp hockey pool, so we weren’t quite quorate. I thought I’d take one more kick at this particular can and suggest a virtual pool, run in real-time over Skype.

I was thinking next Monday, October 6 between 5:30pm and 7:30pm. I know four games will have been played by then, but I don’t think that particularly matters.

I figure Skype is probably the most ubiquitous, simplest tool in which to run the draft. If you’ve got another suggestion–I guess Twitter would be a possibility–fire away.

If you’re interested in joining said, uh, Automagical Virtual Hockey Pool, leave a comment.

If we get enough, I’ll run it. If not, I’ll watch the 2008-09 season with a stake in only one, meagre, non-playoff team. And if there’s a torrent of interest, the maximum number of participants is 15. All other rules are as on the BarCamp wiki.


  1. I’m in too. But I don’t think I’ll be able to make it by 5:30 on Monday – I’m running a seminar at UBC until 5 p.m. that day, and it will take me longer than 5:30 to get home. Any chance we could do it at 6 p.m.?

  2. Beth: We can probably move it. Or, if not, you can give me a list of your top 20 hotties and I can draft the first couple of rounds for you.

  3. Cool. I’ll go through my list to figure out my top 20! My posting on hockey hotties is getting me *tonnes* of traffic, so I’m sure my readers wouldn’t mind hearing about which ones are my top 20!
