One of my favorite things to do, sportswise, is sit down and watch the first round of the NFL draft. I love college football, and I know quite a bit about it, and it's fun to watch the scheming and the trading and the guessing. It's like a chess match with overfed idiots calling the shots.

Yet every year it seems something ALWAYS prevents me from watching. This year, it's a home inspection scheduled for 9 AM tomorrow (tentatively.... I'm guessing the current owners won't be happy about that).

Oh well. Thank Goodness for TiVo. I'll Tivo the first bit and watch the rest LIVE. :-)

In other sports news, we went to our first Dodgers game of the year last night, Joe Beimel sucks, and we lost, but I brought home a new friend.

Meet my buddy Nomar:

No, he doesn't play "Lowrider"  :-)

But you can't be his friend unless you have one!

Or as we used to call him in Boston, Nomah. ;-)

Well, a "Nomah" bobble head is pretty cool, but you may now officially envy me because we have one of these.

I mean, really. Nomar's career will end but a Dodger Dog is forever.

Of course, I still envy you because we haven't been to the hallowed grounds of Dodger Stadium for some time now, though Daughter Number One has been there recently.

I'm not going to be able to watch it either, but I'm looking for three from my team to be drafted in the first round, including maybe the number one pick. We'll see, I guess.

Maybe on TiVo its bearable, but otherwise, the NFL draft?!?!? I'm a pretty devout sports fan, but I don't know if I could sit there for hours watching that thing-- though I suppose it's still better than watching the anoerixic-capades also known as gymnastics.

Then again, if your only other option is the Dodgers, maybe I can understand.... :)
