Another Expert Draft on 7/28/98

I participated in another “Expert Draft” on 7/28, this one for a fantasy TV show called “Fantasy Huddle” that airs in various markets on Time Warner Cable. I wish I could actually participate in a draft without distractions, but that’s an impossibility around my house if I’m drafting at night, which I did in this one.
