Easter has come and gone and all across the country, Christians are resuming their sinful ways. Heathens are presumably just facing yet another week on the road to hell, no different than any other wicked and empty set of days.
Speaking of Roger Goodell’s journey, this May draft idea is a real stinker. It’s rendered April almost devoid of NFL activity, give or take the various wayward adventures of Aldon Smith and Chris Culliver and Colin Kaepernick and Quinton Patton, all of whom have made news for the wrong reasons this month.
The Houston Texans must be feeling a bit peeved. When the Colts had the number one pick, Andrew Luck was available, even though Indy could have squeezed another two to four years out of Peyton Manning. But when the Texans hold the top pick, and desperately need a QB, there’s no world beater in sight. They’ll probably take a DL guy, Jadeveon Clowney, just like they had to do in 2006 with Mario Williams.
Is this a game of chance? Not the way the football gods play it.
In the grand scheme of things, it’s probably somewhat fair that a franchise thieving, substance abuse wacko owner ranks higher on the justice ladder than a team in Texas — ANY team in Texas. But that doesn’t explain how a miserable creep like Pete Carroll can luck out in the third round by drafting Russell Wilson and transforming a ho-hum little second tier team into an SB winner. Fie uponst thou, football gods. Clearly, thou art a heathen entity.
