Okay, so I don’t really know if the NFL Draft sucks. ‘Cuz I’m not watching.
Nor are most people. They’re at work. Who schedules an NFL draft during weekdays? Only a bonehead. The draft is supposed to be non-football season watching for football fans. It should be on a Sunday (or a Saturday and Sunday). Not during the week.
Then, they have this stupid red carpet during the draft and who is on it?! Two words that make all men and all football fans want to change the channel as quickly as possible: Whoopi. Golberg. Yes, you read that right. Not Bill Goldberg. Whoopi “I make men celibate” Goldberg. It’s the NFL Draft, for crying out loud. They’re supposed to have sports geeks and hot supermodels. Not the most annoying, most unattractive Marxist hag on television. What were they thinking? And trust me, it won’t bring more women to the NFL fan base. They like to look at the hot women, too. It’s aspirational. Nobody–man or woman–aspires to looking or sounding like Whoopi Goldberg. No-one.
And they stretched it out to three days. Three days to watch a bunch of middle-aged men pick the names of a less than 200 20-somethings–half of whom will be robbing banks or filing for bankruptcy in ten years? Who cares? Yaaawn.
But I was right about one thing. Remember back during Superbowl week when I said Tim Tebow would go in the first round, and everyone told me I was on crack? Well, guess who went in the first round? Told ya so. Not that I think he’ll live up to that draft slot. But they picked him. Their prob. They’re making billions, he’ll make millions. Why should I care? I don’t. But the two cool things about him being drafted so high is that the Denver Broncos said they picked him for his character, which the team said raised him to the first round. Finally. Maybe the NFL is finally getting it. Maybe. Plus, Tebow thanked G-d after he was drafted. Great to hear.
Do you? Is anyone reading this paying attention to the draft? Why? Ya got no wet paint to watch while it dries?

I know you’re an NFL fan. I sometimes used to attend the NFL draft (free) at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Now I watch on ESPN.
Three days? THREE DAYS? Are they kidding?
No, they’re not kidding. They’re delusional.
