The competitive sleeping league - The Origin Story ILLUSTRATED

The latest season of the Competitive Sleeping League has come to a dramatic close (watch highlights of the Championship here). With that, Sleepletes from around the world now set their drowsy eyes on next year's season and a shot at the Golden Dohm.

During the pause we thought we take a nostalgic look back at how far the sport has come. The history of the CSL is the stuff dreams are made of, springing onto the world's stage as if from nowhere. But how did it all begin?

We asked Rob Ullman - sports nut, pin-up artist, and creator of the Old-Timey Hockey Tales comic series - to illustrate the story, as told by 3-Time CSL champion and now CSL commentator Chip Fletcher.
