I did not watch the NFL Draft last night.**
I watched hockey.
** Full Disclosure: I did click over to the draft during hockey commercial breaks/intermissions. Ostensibly to see who was going where, but really in hopes of hearing a few Goodell boos. Those are always fun.
I will not be watching the NFL Draft tonight, either. I’ll be watching hockey again.
Frankly, I’m all drafted out. I’m sick of hearing about it and I’ll be happy when it’s over. For months it’s felt as if I couldn’t get away from it. ESPN, NFL Network, “Online Sources”…? Doesn’t matter. I’m sick of hearing about it.
And of course after this weekend we’ll still be hearing about the winners and losers of the draft. I plan to avoid that as much as possible too.
Am I saying the NFL Draft should not be covered in the media? Of course not. But it’s become it’s own special brand. It’s own damned “sport” season. I’ve had enough of it.
I’d rather spend my time watching an actual sport playing actual games. And honestly, even when the NFL is actually playing games, ya know…during the actual football season…? Hockey is still a better sport anyway.
There…. it had to be said. Stop throwing things at me, you know it’s true.
But regardless of that….No way in hell am I gonna watch the NFL Draft over PLAYOFF HOCKEY!!!!
Speaking Of Playoff Hockey
The second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs got underway last night.
The Pens rolled into DC last night to face the Caps, and promptly found themselves down 1-0 in game one just 17 seconds in. It stayed that way until about 30 seconds into the 3rd, when the Caps would score again to take a 2-0 lead. Wow, it’s the Cap’s year!!!!! Wow, it feels soooooo fucking good. Whoa…that didn’t last long. Wow, how wrong was I????? Five minutes and 3 Yinzer 3rd period goals later….?
Pens steal game one in DC by a final of 3-2.
In Vegas, the Knights were set to host the Sharks. Both clubs swept their first round opponents rather handily, so it was expected that game one would be hard fought.
It was not.
Vegas asserted themselves early and often, de-toothing the Carcharodons by a 7-0 final. Ouch.
Captain Quint approves, however.

Because of EA Sports’ NHL99, I can never hear this song anymore without it reminding me of hockey, btw.
You Have Your Draft, I’ll Have Mine
Sexy Beer Girls!!!!!
Yeah, I couldn’t very well do hockey girls again so soon. We just did that two weeks ago. But all this talk about “drafts” got me to thinking. Well, as much as I think these days, anyway.
NOTHING BEATS A GOOD DRAFT!!!!!!
Of course, since I did weed girls (again) last week and am doing beer girls this week (phrasing) …? Well, maybe I really DO need an intervention?
Meh, screw it. Imma go get high, have some beer and think about it. I think I’m probably OK though.
OK, time for another cold one I guess.
Cold beer, that is…not another cold woman. Had enough of those to last a lifetime.
Have a great weekend, everyone.
