You can picture me saying this in either an extraordinarily pretentious voice or perhaps like Allen Iverson.

But for your Saturday sports viewing there are:

And yet most people seem to want to spend a Saturday afternoon watching Roger Goodell telling them who's on the clock and see large men hold up jerseys with a number 1 on them. Or listen to idiotic New York Jets fans complain about their team.

We're talking about a draft, man. It's just a draft.

Don't mind me though. As I've said before, I'm no fun. Perhaps if I just filled this space up with "Great Moments in Electoral College history" I would get more interest.

I don't get watching the draft either. Follow online to see who "your" team picks, and then move on.

Watching the NFL draft is like if you went to go see a movie, but instead of seeing the finished product, you saw a bunch of production meetings.

I guess watching a football draft is about as inane as posting on blogs. We all have our way of wasting time.

For some reason, the NFL Draft really irritates me. Although the airing of the NFL Draft Combine is even worse.

People cannot get enough of the NFL. I've got friends of mine in Europe and whenever they want to tell someone who doesn't know better how big soccer is, they compare it to how the NFL is covered here.

Talk radio? Abuzz with two things this week: Lakers basketball and the NFL draft. You barely hear word one about baseball.

At least the Lakers are actually playing games that matter.

The NFL isn't even playing any games.
