Ladies and Gents,
Today is Christmas Day for most of us. It’s NFL Sunday Week 1. Hope is in the air and the idea of bringing home some cash at the end of a long season is real. This is a great day to be humble, happy, generous, and thankful because in order for us to collectively get to this point we had to wake up, I’m THANKFUL for that and all of you. The fact that we’ve sold 140 orphans and did not fold 1 league makes me HAPPY. The amount of GENEROSITY it took to sell those orphans is truly amazing and lastly, I’m HUMBLED by the success we’ve had together making this whole thing happen.
Each year I sit here and try my best to offer you a service that you are proud of and happy to call yourself a part of. Each year we look at what we’ve accomplished and each year I continue to write this NFL kickoff story for you because you don’t give me a reason not to.
Each year the story grows, the chapters turn and the characters evolve. The part that keeps me going is that I get to share this with all of you. Over a decade of dynasty league drafts under our belt, we grow and continue to move forward!
The DSE train continues today as it’s a special day for some amazing people in our community. Today we name the Class of 2021 DSE Hall of Fame. It’s not as fancy as a Nobel Prize or Academy Award but for me, it’s an opportunity to thank and acknowledge the people who have made a positive impact on our community and continue to display good sportsmanship and a high level of integrity every day.
I can finally say that we have been around long enough that having 10 years of anything feels like a lifetime and we certainly have some great people here who have put their time in and should be acknowledged.
Hall of Fame winners receive a $100 yearly credit as a token of my appreciation and the overwhelming response of appreciation from everyone in this community. Our past inductees include Mike Rappo (RIP), @Josh Carmusin- Brockton Hustlers @Paul Monte – Admin @Damian Smith – Summit @Nic Licursi LA Living Legends/Tampa Takeover, and @Casey Yandle – Admin.
This year’s winner has been nothing short of amazing to the DSE community. He has spent endless hours helping our staff, assisting league mates, and taking on responsibilities in which he saw opportunities to help make positive changes and grow our brand. He currently serves as our Fantasy Baseball Commissioner but leads all the leagues in Saves as far as I’m concerned. He is always there when we need him and even when we don’t. He has been a great asset to our community and I see no reason why anyone else besides him should be added to our small, exclusive group of all-star members here at DSE.
So, without further ado, it gives me great pleasure to welcome @Chris Z Chris Zelaya to the DSE Hall of Fame! Congratulations Chris, thank you for all you’ve done for DSE and I hope to have you around for as long as we are! Please join me in sending Chris some well-deserved CONGRATULATIONS!!
