    Please, not Mr. Holland, writer of an opus!

    Caesar, not being in the draft is only a minor inconvenience. In some ways it was more fun to not be in the draft than it is now to be in the draft. Continue the rebel draft tradition!

    My faculty needs an assistant principal/vice-chancellor/whip hand.

    I choose Master Palemon of the Seekers of Truth and Penitence, otherwise known as the Torturers Guild, from the series by Gene Wolfe called the Book of the New Sun.

    I need a university president and am ready to make my selection. I present to you:

    [​IMG]

    PROFESSOR QUINCY ADAMS WAGSTAFF, former president of Huxley College. But I hear that he is currently free.

    If nothing else, budget and other state of the university type meetings won't be boring! I'd like to see ol' Wagstaff turned loose on those Harvard faculty . . .

    (in case you're wondering: "Horse Feathers," Marx Brothers 1932)

    For the 9th Round, Norsk Troll selects:

    Professor R. J. Lupin

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Because he's a good teacher, a good guy, and he really needs a job. If he eats one or two students occasionally, well, we'll just try to make sure they're the underperforming ones. (I hesitated on taking a teacher from Hogwarts since Dumbledore had already been chosen, but there are so many tempting ones, that I figured "what the heck" - anyway, my 10th round pick is in the bag, as no one will ever pick it).

    Norsk Troll's Faculty:
    Jean Brodie (The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie)
    Coach Norman Dale (Hoosiers)
    Mr. Chipping (Goodbye, Mr. Chips)
    Captain John H. Miller (Saving Private Ryan)
    Mark Thackeray (To Sir, with Love)
    Gabe Kotter (Welcome Back, Kotter)
    Tom Crick (Waterland)
    Koro (Whale Rider)
    R. J. Lupin (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban)

    I seriously considered this right after taking Snape. I considered it again later too. Great teacher. I'm glad someone wasn't worried about too much HP.

    No, but I actually thought about him. You shouldn't post him, though, in case anyone else was thinking along those lines - this is, somewhat, a humourous tongue-in-cheek draft, after all.

    Agreed - and deleted. I'll introduce him in the supplemental draft phase if he doesn't get selected.

    Sorry...all of the crap that's gone on in MLS lately (Red Bull, Doug Hamilton dying) hasn't made me want to come on here in a while...

    I pick Bleeding Gums Murphy, Lisa Simpson's saxaphone mentor.

    Yes, I suppose enough time has elapsed. I'm not worried about anyone picking this draftee anyway.

    I am always impressed by people who screw up early in life and make good later -- those crazy kids who grow up to be doctors, lawyers, and, yes, teachers.

    This one was as bad as they come, but he made it right later on. He could relate to the idiot kids in his class better than other teachers, because he was there, man.... he was there! And he even became a mentor to poor, little Leonardo DiCaprio.

    I choose.............................

    [​IMG]

    Mr. Mike Seaver!

    (please note... I do not select crazy Christian fanatic, Kirk Cameron)

    Okay, I think it's my turn.
    [​IMG]
    I pick Miss Honey, from Matilda, mostly because of her potential. This potential was ripened a little when she showed up as the vulnerable and soulful and vulnerable and troubled and vulnerable prof. of arcane religious stuff who was drawn into it because her dad was possessed in Fallen. It came to near fruition when she showed up again as the randy and slightly amoral art collector/private museum curator who was chasing Henry Darger-style art down in NC, in June Bug.

    Yeah, Embeth Davidtz! w00t! Great pick.

    For my ninth pick, I'm taking a character from one of my favorite novels by one of my favorite authors:

    Creakle from Charles Dicken's David Copperfield (and I totally needed a mad disciplinarian):

    For the first pick of the tenth and final round, I select a Shakespeare teacher. (I've got an English teacher AND a Shakespeare teacher, with NO math teacher. Guess what my major was in college? :))

    I choose Army Shakespeare instructor Bill Rago.

    Okay, I'll assume I'm up and move us along. I've saved my babe factor for the end:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    CAROL VESSEY, of the t.v. show Ed. Nothing funny to say here (big change for me!), just a good English and creative writing type.

    Oh man, I wish I had remembered her ...


    For my 10th and final selection, I need a music teacher, so I select:

    Joachim Dallayrac, from the movie Le Maître de musique (a/k/a The Music Teacher) (1988), starring José van Dam in the title role.

    Hurry up and finish your draft, so I can make my picks from the leftovers.
