It’s almost Halloween times, and The Oarsman’s own Billy Quinn and Dylan Rios hosted a draft to figure out the top candies in the game…

Dylan: Welcome to Dylan and Billy’s 2022 Halloween Candy Draft.

Billy: Hi Dylan, you know, it’s a clear Number One overall pick for me, an all time classic. It’s the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, been around for a while, everyone loves them, no controversy.

Dylan: I don’t know man, I think that’s a pretty controversial pick, that’s not even on my list. I wasn’t even thinking about it. For me, my Number One pick is Snickers. It’s an all time favorite, can’t go wrong with Snickers.

Billy: Oh, that’s a solid pick, I’ve gone for Twix as my Number Two. It offers a bit of a different edge, a bit of crunch, a bit of caramel.

Dylan: That’s a respectable pick. That would’ve been my Number Two, but I’m going to go with KitKat instead. You know what they say, “If you need a break, just eat a Kit Kat.” you feel me?

Billy: Man, you know, I think Sour Patch Kids is my Number Three. We’ve moved away from chocolate, that’s more of an offensive player, Whereas Sour Patch can really hold down the fort—little bit of pizzazz, it’s a difference maker.

Dylan: I’m going to go with a foreign player here from overseas, I’ll go with Malteasers. I think we need a bit of an international pick on our team. Malteasers are a great team player, it brings diversity, so that’s my Number Three pick.

Billy: That’s a good one, it didn’t even cross my mind. For Number Four, I’ve gone for the little bro of my Number One, I’ve gone for Reeses Pieces. It’s not quite as strong as it’s older brother, but you know, it’s got great potential. I can definitely see a future in the all star team, and even in the MVP conversation.

Dylan: Competing with your Number Four, I’m going to go with Peanut M&M’s, a veteran player and a solid pick.

Billy: Number Five pick I’ve got a couple options here. I’ve got Nerds, I’ve got Milk Duds, but I’ve opted to go for Airheads. You know, they’re versatile, they can play lots of positions. You’ve got blue, you’ve got sour, and you’ve even got the Mystery Flavor.

Dylan: I’m gonna go with candy corn, you know it might be out of its prime, but we just need that veteran player in our squad.

Billy: I think candy corn is past its prime, I can’t lie. I think candy corn had its moments, but there are new players. You’ve got the Watermelon Airheads of the world, you’ve got the Nerds Ropes of the world. I just don’t think theres any space for candy corn in the current lineup.

Dylan: Thanks for tuning into this year’s draft. Happy Halloween!
