I’ve been thinking a bit about the NFL draft.
I’m not really a football fan. I mean, I watch it when it’s on and surrounded by beer and tasty snacks, but I don’t follow it closely, and I certainly don’t care about the NFL draft. But I do understand the appeal.
Unlike the NHL draft, where the players are drafted as zygotes, and after the draft disappear into Canada to play in juniors (possibly never to be seen or heard from again), the guys in the NFL draft will be on the team next year. If there was a similar NHL draft, and I could be dreaming of a couple of new NHL-ready, beard growing, gritty Sabres, you better believe I’d LOVE that draft. I’d talk about it incessantly, and I’d devote post after post to all the potential ways we could get rid of half the Sabres and replace them with new, foxy college kids.
I can’t possibly be the first person to point this out, but the Bills drafted a player who looks just like the kid from Bad Santa. Bad Santa is one of the most heart warming movies ever made, so I think this bodes well for the Bills.
And that concludes my in-depth analysis of the 2009 NFL draft. See you next year!
