Your comments about the tragedy in Boston show why you write and we can only read. Well written, well thought out. Thank you for putting so many of our thoughts into words.
Simple rule --
Draft kids who have older brothers - they've seen the game, parents know the routine. If out of those go with the GLM plan.
Great one team list. Two shows that were / are entertaining if you enjoy sci-fi, Eureka and Warehouse 13. These are both acquired taste type shows.
5@10er I must respectfully disagree with Bray sneaking into the first round. Of the last 10 teams drafting none of them need a QB with the exception of Vikings depending on what you think of Ponder. Teams that finish this high, finish there for a reason, good QB play. A team drafting earlier will not spend a high 1st round pick on Bray, they would just wait until the second round to pick him. He MIGHT sneak into the early second round but not the first. Renfree on the other hand has the opposite problem - million dollar head, five cent arm. Barkley is a enigma, I like that he came back but was dissappointing, Smith, Glennon, and Manuel can be hit or miss. I think Bray falls into the bottom of this group.
Jay -- put me down for Tony Stewart and Danica 15th. Think the crowd will be waving singles in the air when Danica does the parade lap on "the pole"? Rushmore of owners Buss, Steinbrenner, the Rooney family, Lamar Hunt. Reinsdorf gets a mention in the visitor's center along with a few others.
Never noticed the ears -- sorry.
White Goodman—Dodgeball. He had Blazer, Laser, and rest of crew ready to beat up on Average Joe's gym. BTW try the Princess Breakfast at the gentleman's club across the street from the Magic Kingdom. Same cost suprisingly.
You love the draft, we love the draft, the drafts loved Dave Winfield. Winfield was drafted by four teams in three different sports. The San Diego Padres selected him as a pitcher with the fourth overall pick in the MLB draft and both the Atlanta Hawks (NBA) and the Utah Stars (ABA) drafted him. Even though he never played college football, the Minnesota Vikings selected Winfield in the 17th round of the NFL draft.
To follow up on OG, which four current QBs would you want to lead your team in the last 2 minutes of the Super Bowl if you are trailing by 4 and need a TD? I'm going Brady, Rodgers, Manning (Eli), ?????
I would have included Peyton amongst the losers. Three turnovers including a brain cramp on the last possession that led to the winning FG were his undoing. He may go down as the greatest regular season quarterback of all time but a nine and eleven record (including 8 first round losses) play-off record keeps him from being the greatest ever.
