Time to draft your “Word-Team” for the State of the Union Word Fantasy League. As you know, the State of the Union is set for Tuesday evening and as of yet, Trump has not announced plans to give the speech off the Truman balcony, dressed in a military jacket and jawing on a cigar.
For the purposes of fantasy action, you are to draft one word from each division. Each word is assigned a price such that no one person can purchase all the obvious words such as “bigly,” or “genius.” Each time Trump uses a word from your “Word Team” in the speech, you will be assigned points, one point for regular use, two points if the word is immediately followed by applause, and three if Trump says the word and immediately fires a gun into the air.
This year’s speech looks to provide plenty of action. In previous administrations, the subject matter and vocabulary limited the number of players in each household to those with some basic high school This year promises fun for everyone aged 8 and up! Be sure to pick your team carefully, as no one wants to be left holding words like “MENSA” and “diet” when the president leaves the building.
Your “team” salary is one million dollars and you must remain within the salary cap.
