Don't worry, I don't have anything remotely intelligent to say about the NFL draft. But it's amazing to me what a pop culture phenomenon it's become in the past few years. Especially this year. Sure, I have a Season Pass to PTI, but Tony and Mike rightfully disdain all of the draft hoopla. Nevertheless, it has been seeping into my consciousness.
Six of the top prospects were on the Today Show this morning, where Katie totally drooled all over Matt Leinart. (Did you know that D'Brickashaw Ferguson was named after Father Ralph de Bricassart of "The Thorn Birds"?)
The most awesome thing though was on SportsCenter last night. They had a crew following Matt Leinart, and they were interviewing him about his fashion sense. He was saying that Reggie Bush and Vince Young are better in the department, but he tries to stay competitive. Vince Young was sitting right behind him and he just rolled his eyes as Leinart was talking. Not like "You're such a loveable doofus." More like "I could not hate you more, you phony California pretty boy." Hilarious.
