OPINA'S OPINION - KFBB Talks Fantasy Prep Football Draft

Posted: Updated:
Hey Guys!

My twitter notifications blew up over the weekend. People were favoriting and retweeting the random chat that we had on Twitter.

The KFBB Sports team held a twitter conversation about who they would draft if we had a Montana High School Fantasy Football League, something similar to my Legion Baseball/Prep Softball Fantasy Blog.

The conversation was started by (Weekend Sports Anchor) Blake Arthur and included (Sports Director) Ben Kaplan, (Helena Sports Reporter) Jake Jones, (News/Sports Reporter) Dan Cordtz and Your Truly.

Cameos were made by by Mark Robertson (Great Falls Tribune) and A.J. Mazzolini (The Missoulian)

I thought I would just lay out the timeline of the conversation in one easy blog so people wouldn't have to creep on our twitter accounts. The tweets are copied and pasted directly from twitter.
