All good football blogs need a mock draft, and the really good ones need several. But this is DFO, and we're as much about the dick jokes, mildly suggestive photos, and beer as we are about football, so you'll get two mock draft, (neither of which will be remotely accurate),
Scene: An office suite. As the camera pans back we see a large desk. Several TVs are situated in front of the desk in such a manner that the occupant of the desk can view them all at the same time. Two of the screens are tuned to ESPN, one
I started the initial draft of this post, in good faith mind you, sometime back in February, with the idea that I'd knock out 2-3 teams at a clip and cruise into my self-imposed and utterly meaningless 3/20 deadline with ease. I did not, however, learn anything from last year,
I grew up in the failing brass mill town that is Waterbury, CT. I started watching baseball in 1976. The first game I ever watched, (and no, I don't know why I still recall this), featured the New York Mets, for whom Nino Espinosa was the starting pitcher. I remember
WHERE ARE THEY NOW? 3-4, tied for 2nd, (or 3rd, if you're a glass half-empty sort), with the way too hungover Eagles.
WHERE SHOULD THEY BE? That's probably about where they should be, although they've taken an interesting route to get there. They lost to the Carolina Panthers in Week 1,
As you may recall, I checked out on the NFL last year. The initial draft of this preview, (which I was going to pass on to another Cowboys fan this year, but the only person who stepped up was an Eagles fan, and while I would dearly like to step
FIFA Rank: 1st! That's really good!
World Cup Group: It doesn't matter, (but Group F), because they'd storm any group like it was Poland in 1939.
Hey, How'd They Get Here?: They beat the shit out of everyone in their European qualifying group, winning all 10 games and scoring 4+ goals a game. They
FIFA Rank: 35th. That's...well, that's a number inn'it?
World Cup Group: Group E.
Hey, How'd They Get Here?: They beat Georgia, (Hey, did you know it's a country and a state? What a world!) by one goal to clinch a spot. While it sounds like they just squeaked in, they did come out of
FIFA Rank: 6th! That's good!
World Cup Group: The one with Brazil! (Group E) That's bad!
Hey, How'd They Get Here?: They finished second in the their European qualifying division, defeating Northern Ireland on a controversial penalty kick for a handball that never touched the Irish guy's hand. That said, the Swiss
You may recall that I did two of these last year, and, for some reason, another version this year that I posted on March 26th. That's a month before the actual draft. I swore I wouldn't do another, because these are actually a lot of work and I don't
(Never gonna get tired of that shot)
You may recall my mock drafts from last year. I did two versions, with the second going up the night of the first round. I started off 4-for-4, (in terms of the right player going to the right team; I did not call the

I've been a fan of the New York Giants ever since I can remember, although admittedly my memory has been rusty since I saw that one guy, you know who, doing that one
