Your NFL Draft Weekend, Kentucky Style

While you were glued to the TV all weekend hoping that your favorite team picked some players that you had at least heard of, folks in Kentucky were out busy doing other things. (No, I’m not making this up. Just look at the photo that is posted. That’s why it’s there.) Now, I wouldn’t dare, nor do I care to speculate what kept folks in the “Bluegrass State” so busy over the weekend. I’m sure they had way more important things to worry about than some draft. Well on second thought, I think I will speculate. Cmon. You really didn’t think that I would pass up this opportunity, did you?

Let the speculation begin!

Another glorious day in Kentucky. Breakfast is on the table and the family is watching Rick Pitino: Basketball Fundamentals. Good Times.

12:00 PM
After a hearty lunch, the entire family puts on their matching John Calipari tees and heads out for a day on the town. In the pickup or minivan or whatever, Big Scoupe is blasting through the speakers, much to the delight of the kids. Normally, Big Scoupe wouldn’t make the cut during family outings, but anyone that has a song entitled, “Calipari, Calipari” is good enough for the family. More Good Times.

4:00 PM
Back from the day out, it’s time to unwind before dinner. The draft has just begun, but you’re too busy on discussing how you can get your hands on an “Obama style” Calipari t-shirt to even notice. Did I mention, Good Times?

8:00 PM
Dinner Time! And the new dinner time ritual is for the family to discuss the intricacies of Calipari’s Dribble-Drive-Motion offense. Oh yes. Good Times.

12:00 AM
With the family outfitted in their Kentucky pajamas, it’s time to turn in for the night. Good Day, Good Times.

Yet another glorious day in the state of Kentucky. It’s breakfast time and the family is getting ready for church. But before church, it’s mandatory that each family member take in “The World’s Greatest” and “The World’s Greatest” (The Sequel). Inspirational Good Times.

12:00 PM
Back from church and it’s time for lunch. The draft resumed 2 hours ago, but you’re not concerned. It’s back off to Today’s discussion is whether there will be No-Doze issued to the lower arena Geritol crowd next year. Riveting Good Times.

4:00 PM
24 hours ago, the draft started. Even though it is now in the 4th or 5th round, you haven’t seen a minute of it. Around 5:45, you learn that Myron Pryor was drafted by the Patriots in the 6th round. Around this same time, you learn that Myron Pryor played for the Kentucky football team. Nice! Thank God for CatPause. Don’t really like this football stuff, but Good Times.

8:00 PM
Sunday dinner time. Also known as “Selection Sunday” around these parts. It’s where the family gathers to watch NCAA Selection Shows from years past. Ahhhh, the memories. The epitome of Good Times.

12:00 AM
Another weekend in the state of Kentucky is done. And not a second of the draft has been watched. Who needs the NFL draft when you live in Kentucky? Good Times and an even Better Weekend!

    What is so fantastic about the six round snoozefest that is the NFL draft? The NCAA selection show has a much quicker payoff- BANG Wed night play in game! We’ll have to wait six years to hear that Matt Stafford was a) a bust or b) the lions’ savior.
