Off Topic

"I thought I would hate it, but I actually found it riveting because people's lives were being affected by the result." A woman in my office talking about watching the NFL draft.

Is that the game where they wear shoulder pads, grunt and throw a spiral ball around? I think I saw them play in-between this really good Madonna concert once...

Cocoa said...

*Gag*

OT: does anyone have any intel on TTM? Is she on the ground in Toronto?

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Poor Johnny Foosball should've stayed in school. My Brownies go through promising quarterbacks like those cartoon Charmin bears go through toilet paper.

Keep your head up, kid.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Cocoa! I think she should be there now.

Seven of Eleven said...

Boy, she must have a heck of time watching The Biggest Loser, then.

@Cocoa, didn't she say she'd check in when she got Hiddles and Jax in the backseat of the rental car? My bag is packed and ready by the door.

Violet said...

You need to tell me how this works. Do all these little teens sit in a room in front of the football bigwigs and they all put in bids for who they want? It's sort of like being picked last for the netball team at school.

GatorGirl said...

I was hoping the Cowboys would grab him but they passed....damn....

sandybrook said...

Tl:dw

Miss Demeanor said...

I'm glad the Cowboys passed on him. Serves him right for expecting to stay in Texas.

Cocoa said...

Fan Gurl better keep us posted, Seven!

Cocoa said...

Heyyyy, Kristin!

hairydawg said...

Maybe this time will be different for The Browns. Mangini almost ruined the organization. I think he was the coach when they drafted Quinn?

Gayeld said...

Whose raising the bail money?

hairydawg said...

meant to say "Mangina"

Cocoa said...

Ohhhhh... bail money. :-/

OneEyeCharlie said...

I got the bail money covered, Gayeld. Worst case, I could be there in a little over 6 hours

surfer said...

Then you'll join us for brunch Charlie!

Count Jerkula said...

LOL Johnny Football!!! He looked dumfounded when the CowGirls passed on him.

Jets took a safety, meh.

hairydawg said...

The Cowgirls like to have the biggest O line in the league. Maziel is too short to play behind them.

hairydawg said...

Patriots took a DE from Florida with two blown out knees. Once Brady retires and announces his foray into politics its OVA.

surfer said...

Just heard from TTM - she landed safely, and is having one of our fine beers!

OneEyeCharlie said...

That's the first step to needing bail money.

Dingle Barry said...

Did Hiddles stick around longer in anticipation of TTM's visit? He most likely reads CDAN and thought, "She's a beaut of a red head!"

TalksTooMuch said...

Hey guys! I just had the best beer! Mother Pucker's Ginger Wheat
Ale! Woot! Wait, what was the question? ?

TalksTooMuch said...

Aww, thank you, Dingle! I haven't seen the Hiddles yet, but I can see the Trumo Hotel from my hotel window...who's got binoculars??

TalksTooMuch said...

You should totally join us for brunch, Charlie! You and baul money! Kristin, GET HERE!

OneEyeCharlie said...

Reportedly, Toronto has great Eggs Benedict, Kristin.

derek harvey said...

@TTM Holt Renfrew and Bloor Street in general is where you would most likely see him or any celeb. Or The Horseshoe Tavern---I met many celebs there including Drew Barrymore!

AndrewBW said...

The Cleveland Browns are like the Bermuda Triangle of quarterbacks.

texas rose said...

For Johnny to have any shot at success in NFL he needed to go to a warm weather team. He is going get his ass kicked and, if he starts, will be injured halfway through the season.

TalksTooMuch said...

Okay derek, wine stocks laid in, heh heh

CharRicho said...

I never even knew there was a team called the Houston Texans until last night. That is how much I care about NFL.

Countess Eden said...

I fell asleep before I heard where J Football went. Update?

Enty, we don't believe you have an office. What's her name then, huh? Huh?

texas rose said...

Cleveland pick #22 Countess

Count Jerkula said...

4 beers into pregaming for Billy Joel concert at MSG. I was so sad when I heard he was donating tonights proceeds to Beff Sterns cat sanctuary.

TalksTooMuch said...

Woot guys! Indian food and more wine!

TalksTooMuch said...

You know it, Seven and Cocoa!

TalksTooMuch said...

^5 Count!
