We have just learned that before Tony Almeida “died” in Season 6, he was leading his Fantasy Baseball League. In fact, both Almeida and Curtis Manning finished in first and second place respectively, despite being killed. While Curtis remains dead, Tony Almeida has now put in a claim for the league’s cash winnings (approximately $300), which coincidentally fell to Jack Bauer’s third-place team (by operation of CTU’s very detailed “In Case of Death or Dismemberment” clause in the Fantasy league’s bylaws).
Almeida recounts his last memory of the fantasy league: “Just before I died, Bauer offered me Ryan Howard for Sabathia straight-up. I was about to accept the trade, but thankfully Christopher Henderson stabbed me with an overdose of hyoscine-pentathol. Phew, he saved my season!”
League Commissioner Milo Pressman could not be reached to render a decision because he is also dead (still). League bylaws designate that the Los Angeles CTU director will make decisions on behalf of the Commissioner in such an event. But because CTU is no longer in existence, there is no official designate.
Currently the Secretary of Homeland Security is considering the matter. We will update you as this situation develops further.
