NFL Draft Review

The much anticipated 2010 NFL Draft was this past weekend; the first round was held live during prime time on Thursday. Of source there it is no surprise that QB Sam Bradford and DT Ndamukong Suh were drafted number one and two to the St. Louis Rams and the Detroit Lions respectively. The surprise of the Draft was definitely that the Denver Broncos took QB Tim Tebow in the first round at number 25 overall. It has been largely publicized that most scouts don't believe that Tebow will make a good NFL QB even though he has had an enormously successful college career. Most believed that the Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen would be drafted well ahead of Tebow, but instead he was drafted 16th in the second round by the Carolina Panthers. The other highly talked about QB Colt McCoy coming out of Texas was drafted 21st in the third round. WR Jordan Shipley who also had a decent college career in Texas with McCoy was draft just before him by the Cincinnati Bengals. Some other notable pick ups are: RB C.J. Spiller (Buffalo Bills), WR Dez Bryant (Dallas Cowboys), CB Kyle Wilson (NY Jets), and S Earl Tomas (Seattle Seahawks). The NFL Draft is always a huge event were everyone gives their opinion of the players'  abilities but no one will know how well these players are and how great a team did in the draft until they get on the field and start playing. The best part about the draft to me though is getting to see how happy the mothers of the players are to see their son's dream come true.

Soccer Was His Destiny... See How He Got There.

Today I was watching a new episode of ESPN's E:60 and they did a piece on US Soccer star Clint Dempsey. Now if you are like me and you have been following US Soccer over the past few years you would know how good Clint really is; but for those of you know that don't check out the video after the jump of one of his amazing goals. Anyways, the piece on him was amazing because it just makes you realize that you don't really know what it took for someone to get to where they are now. So since I can't find the video of the E:60 segment I will just tell his story.

Did You Go Mad for the Madness in March?

The NCAA Basketball Tournament (March Madness) is wrapping up this weekend in Indianapolis, Indiana. The the Final Four games are today. The first game will have the two 5 seeds to make the Final Four, Butler and Michigan State, going head to head. The second game will be the only 1 seed to make the Final Four, Duke vs. West Virginia, which is the only 2 seed to make the Final Four. As most of you who made a bracket for the tournament already know, the biggest story of the tournament was that the overall number 1 seed Kansas was eliminated in only the second round by number 9 seed University of Northern Iowa. But the elimination of Kansas is March's news. We will see after this weekend who is going to be April's news. The games can be seen live on CBS with coverage beginning at 1 pm (pst) and the first game beginning at 3 pm (pst). Watch it and let me know who you think will win it all in the Championship game on Monday.

Fools Premiering on April Fools

Tonight Fox News is premiering a new show, Real American Stories, hosted by everyone's favorite idiotic politician Sarah Palin. I guess it's fitting that this is premiering on April Fools because everything involving Sarah Palin and Fox News is a joke. Parts of twitter have been a buzz of this story for a couple of days now so I decided to explain it.

Need Another Way to Pass the Time? I Found It!

My binge of late night television concluded with Last Call with Carson Daly. If you haven't had the chance to check out Last Call in awhile, they have made a dramatic change to the show. It's not taped in a studio anymore, all the shooting takes place on location. I love the informality of the show now. There is such a Southern California chill environment that seems like a much more suitable fit for Carson than the normal suit and tie...

An Amazing Talent on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

So, I was watching NBC all night last night so I eventually cycled through all the late night shows. Of course in the middle of NBC's late night programming is Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Last night's episode featured Tyler Perry promoting his new movie Why Did I Get Married Too? (which will be released nationwide tomorrow Friday April 2, 2010) and this amazing improvisational painter named Dan Dunn. Dunn's art really got my attention. He doesn't just paint he entertains. In just minutes he created a piece of Ray Charles that I couldn't make in 20 years! Don't believe me check out his segment on Fallon after the jump and if your sill interested in his work check out his website PaintJam.com.
