INT. NFL DRAFT GREEN ROOM – EVENING

A number of gifted athletes lounge around on couches. A cellphone rings.

MYLES JACK: [perks up, glances at phone, looks deflated]

EZEKIEL ELLIOT: [smiles at JACK, shrugs] Guess we got the same ring tone.  [answers phone, hops up and exits the room.  In the distance, a pair of pistols are heard firing]

A half hour later…

LAREMY TUNSIL: [exhales…let’s say “a sigh of relief”.  Yeah, “exhales a huge sigh of relief”] WHEW!  [departs]

Still later…

SHAQ LAWSON: [answers phone]

REX RYAN: [audible throughout the green room even though LAWSON is holding the phone to his ear] HOW THE FUCK YOU DOIN’ FALLDOWN BOY?  CAN’T BELIEVE YOU MADE IT TO US!  GET YOUR ASS OUT HERE ON STAGE, YOU’RE COMING TO BUFFALO!

SHAQ LAWSON: [grins, skips off to the podium]

An hour later…

VERNON BUTLER: [gets call, stands up, turns to mother] Finally!  Wow, I thought I wasn’t gonna get taken until tomorrow.  Sure would have been embarrassing to sit here this whole time and…[notices JACK]…um…[trails off]

Two hours later…

INNOCENT HONDURAN JANITOR: Todavía estás aquí?

MYLES JACK: [stands up, draws leg back to kick table, thinks better of it]

INNOCENT HONDURAN JANITOR: Mira el lado bueno – Cleveland elige primero mañana. Ellos necesitan un apoyador!

MYLES JACK: [weeps]

For today’s Request Line, let’s show Myles Jack a little sympathy and let him know he’s not the only one who’s ever felt like he’s been passed over.  This week’s theme: songs of isolation, exclusion, rejection, and unrequited love.

Wait, what’s this?  Are we really getting this Request Line started off with a double shot? YOU’RE GODDAMNED RIGHT WE ARE!

When Beck got brought up earlier I couldn’t think of a good track. Kept going obscure. It was Cellphone’s Dead like 90% of the time

Hey this was the song of the year. It was great when it first came out and then when the radio found it out it got killed.

I’m just happy no one has managed to post a Taylor Swift song yet.
And if anyone was gonna, I’m ashamed to say it would probably be me.
/googles “taylor swift not terribly shitty”
//no results

Duchess

I own Blank Space Im not ashamed of it… also dating a 25 yr old who goes to Swift concerts (she actually has met her mother and got a seat upgrade to the concert)

I just hope no one stole Jacks “Car Radio” cause sitting in silence is scary.

Once you realize that Twenty One Pilots are product of The Factory of Sadness it explains a lot of their music

Pearl Jam – Yellow Ledbetter

Duchess

Considering there are no real lyrics to the song this could be posted in every request line ever and always be right.

Marc Trestmans Windowless Van

They are mumbled in impressive fashion even for Pearl Jam. But it is a about a girl leaving him with a break up note.

Always loved this video about lyrics

What all the teams said to Myles yesterday:

Duchess
Member

As much as I love Tears for Fears (Everybody wants to rule the world is on my top 10 list) It took a cover to really explore the sadness and isolation expressed in this song

I agree with everything you said there. Also I had this one open earlier ready to post too.
