  1. For those who did not see the 2022 Fantasy Baseball thread, we are looking for one more in our league. Please take a look at the settings and buy-in to see if you are interested. Thanks!
  2. Update: We have 11 teams and looking for one more. If you are interested, please contact me. Our live draft is in 10 days. Thanks!
  3. Was this on NPR? I heard the same piece. One of the people discussed to play Don Corleone was Laurence Olivier. Supposedly, this news really pushed Marlon Brando to take the role.
  4. Hi everyone, We have a fantasy baseball league that started in 2008 on the Cigar Aficionados forum where each member put in a few sticks with the winner taking the lot. Since then, the league has evolved to a private cash league that costs $51 ($50 to the pot and $1 to Yahoo!) with the top 3 and regular season winner splitting the pot. Right now, we have 7 of 12 members paid, 1 empty slot, 1 unresponsive member, and 3 others who have not paid, but likely will do so. That means we have between 1-5 slots available for new comers. If you are interested, please post here and I'll send the invitations accordingly. Here are more details of the league settings. Thanks! Draft Type: Live Standard Draft Draft Time: Sat Apr 2 7:30pm CDT Live Draft Pick Time: 1 Minute Cash League Settings: Entry Fee: $50.00 Payment Deadline: Before draft Number of Teams: 12 First Place: $340 (56.67%) Second Place: $150 (25.00%) Third Place: $60 (10.00%) Best Record: $50 (8.33%) Max Teams: 12 Scoring Type: Head-to-Head Player Universe: All baseball New Players Become Available: As soon as Yahoo adds them View List of Forced Players Max Acquisitions for Entire Season: No maximum Max Trades for Entire Season No maximum Trade End Date: August 11, 2022 Allow Draft Pick Trades: No Waiver Time: 1 day Waiver Type: FAB w/ Continual rolling list tiebreak Waiver Mode: Standard Allow injured players from waivers or free agents to be added directly to injury slot: Yes Can't Cut List Provider: None Trade Review: League Votes Votes Required to Veto: Default Trade Reject Time: 2 days Post Draft Players: Free Agents Max Acquisitions per Week: 7 Min innings pitched per team per week: 40 Weekly Deadline: Daily - Tomorrow Start Scoring on: Week 1 Playoffs: 8 teams - Week 21, 22 and 23 (ends Sunday, Sep 25) Playoff Tie-Breaker: Best regular season record vs opponent wins Playoff Reseeding: No Lock Eliminated Teams: Yes Divisions: No Make League Publicly Viewable: Yes Invite Permissions: All Managers Can Invite Send unjoined players email reminders: Yes Roster Positions: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, Util, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, IL, IL Batters Stat Categories: Runs (R), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), On-base + Slugging Percentage (OPS) Pitchers Stat Categories: Strikeouts (K), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP), Quality Starts (QS), Saves + Holds (SV+H)
  5. Let's guess the next stretch goal. I say an 8 x 10 pic of Ken signed with XOXO. 😍
  6. Not a single mention in this thread, interesting. Doesn't mean it's bad, maybe just not much in quantity? https://www.friendsofhabanos.com/forum/topic/150834-from-your-2021-boxespost-the-code-of-your-top-3-standouts/page/2/
  7. I think ideally, all of us would like two copies, one for reading and one for collecting. I think there's a collector side to all of us here. I remember visiting the LCDH in Cancun and seeing a copy of the MRN book in shambles due to how often it was read by patrons of the shop. Part of me was at peace since great books are meant to be read, but part of me was in pain to see the book in disarray. For this, I only have the means for one copy. I guess I'll have to put on rubber gloves when I read it.
  8. The price is not bad considering by November 2022, the price we pay now would probably only be good for a box of Por Larranaga Montecarlos!
  9. I just pledged as well, Collector's Edition! Will be spreading the word too. Good luck to us all!
  10. Mine are: RAT (Diplo #2 ABR 20, PLPC MAY 20) TUA (BBF dress JUN 21) SOU (QdO50 10-box DIC 20)
  11. @coug28 Thank you for finding that thread! I do remember seeing it, but couldn't find it myself. I added up all the mentions and posted the list within that thread. Let me post it here as well for 2020/2021 most popular codes according to members here: *Disclaimer: this won't be as good a list as the ones from El Prez since there could be one good batch of RAT and several members got a box, so the numbers could be skewed that way. Also, I don't know if any of the codes were mistyped since GLE, GEL, GEM, GRM could easily beem mixed up for each other. RAT 15 TUA 11 BSM 11 SOU 9 MAR 5 TUE 4 LTO 3 OER 3 MTS 3 SOR 2 TLU 2 SOP 2 GLE 2 REG 1 GLU 1 AMP 1 TAO 1 EBO 1 GEL 1 GEM 1 GRM 1
  12. Here's a rundown of the tally marks. I wonder if some are typos though? For example, GEL, GEM, GRM, GLE could easily been mistyped for each other. RAT 15 TUA 11 BSM 11 SOU 9 MAR 5 TUE 4 LTO 3 OER 3 MTS 3 SOR 2 TLU 2 SOP 2 GLE 2 REG 1 GLU 1 AMP 1 TAO 1 EBO 1 GEL 1 GEM 1 GRM 1
  13. @El Presidente Did you ever publish a list of your top factory codes for 2020 and 2021? I looked around and could only find the 2018 and 2019 versions. Thanks!
  14. Same here! I still have half a cab of the Mag46, USE MAR 08 left.
  15. I can relate! For me, I had a cigar or two when I was in college, nothing serious. I remember really liking the Rocky Patel 1990s, lol. What really got me into premium cigars was the first time that Cigar Aficionado did their Top 25 list in 2005. The Siglo VI was #3 on that list and the fact that Cohiba was mentioned in the movie Hotel Rwanda was the reason why I went for the Siglo VI. However, the cigar that I really wanted was the #1 cigar on that list, the Padron 40th Anniversary. I was able to get one at a shop years ago randomly and felt like I just found the last unicorn. After saving it for years, I smoked that a few years ago. It was a good cigar, but nothing too memorable.
  16. You most definitely need a good jingle in your commercial. Please reference this. Man that song has worked its way into my mind way too many times... 1-800-LAW-BOSS.....😵
  17. I started smoking cigars on a regular basis around 2005-7 as I was in my 20s and just started working full time. My first CCs were in 2007 as I dove in head first with a box of Cohiba Siglo VI (OSE JUN 06). I thought I overpaid, spending $500 on 25 cigars! Fast forward to 2019 when I was not really smoking that much (like maybe one a month) for the past seven years due to not having too much spare time outside of family and work. I couldn't believe those Siglo VI have doubled in price! Since I wasn't smoking much, I sold a fiver for $200 with two left. I started picking up the hobby mid 2020 and still have two more of those Siglo VI. Do you have any cigars from when you first started the hobby?
