First of all, I’d like to give Jim a huge thank you for covering me last week and making sure that PYW’s went on, despite my attention being needed elsewhere. It’s been a rough couple weeks, and it’s always good to be reminded that there are people in your life who are ready and willing to help you out when you need it.
While I was away, Jim asked you all to come up with a better mascot than everyone’s new favorite pest infestation. I’m not sure we achieved better, to be honest, but we did achieve... different. In first place, we find Rockkstarr12, with 8 recs!

Rounding out our top three, we find onedotfive with four recs. There may be some issues with that whole “copyright” thing, but definitely on the right track...
Now for the updated standings. Jack extends his lead to a very comfortable 12 points over second place, while Rockkstarr is now in sole possession of third place.

Come up with the best criteria for determining the order of the draft. Go!
