Before there was multi-million dollar salaries, there was sport and sportsmanship. Nice story.

Nice story, but there is no hope for us. I have this plan and I will not be stopped. You have been warned. BTW, skijor is going to go first on my list, then Ahsposo. Windchaser is near the very end.

Hey, may I rule the new fiefdom of "Hot Springs, NC now belongs to Allen" until you get around to killing me?

No one is getting killed. Transmogrified maybe, killed, never. Well, maybe a few killings, but not many. But to answer your question, yes. You can start tomorrow.
