I did end up taking Cadillac Williams in the first round (as predicted) and I only took a small amount of shit for it. I think people were still being semi-polite in the first round.
It was kind of confusing because half of us were on a conference call and the other half were
chatting drafting online. Sometimes it was like reading a book and watching tv at the same time. It was like I couldn’t fully concentrate on anything, but I know there was talk of Erin’s boobs, scotch, Jeff George, children, strippers, and tea parties. (Don’t ask me. I told you I didn’t know what was going on already.)
Funniest part of the night: The Kaiser had to draft on autopilot when he was on his way home from work. He got David Carr and Mark Brunell in back to back picks. I wonder if you can sue CBS Sportsline for crappy rankings?
For those of you who care, here is what I ended up with:
QB Carson Palmer
QB Aaron Brooks
RB Carnell Williams
RB Reggie Bush
RB Thomas Jones
RB T.J. Duckett
WR Hines Ward
WR Derrick Mason
WR Braylon Edwards
WR Ashley Lelie
TE Randy McMichael
K Adam Vinatieri
K John Kasay
D Cardinals (shut up – they play Green Bay on Miami’s bye week)
Feel free to make fun of me or praise me as you see fit. I won’t know anyway. I’ll be driving the kids to the beach where I may or may not be able to get online.
If I don’t talk to you until Monday – have a happy Labor Day weekend and Happy Birthday Mom! Sorry that we couldn’t be in Florida for your birthday, but I can see that you have sent Ernesto up to punish us for our insolence.
