Last year’s live blog of the draft was so incredibly enjoyable that we’re doing it again this year. Only this time, we’re going to wear pants.
You’re welcome…but I’m not doing it for you, America. I’m doing it because Cameron and I will be blogging from a secret draft headquarters located deep inside Mel Kiper Jr.’s underwater hair gel storage lair.
We do this for you.
This live blog will be a rockin’ a few minutes before Tim Tebow is most likely not announced as the first overall pick, and you can sign-up in the CoverItLive widget below if you’d like to get a notification to come a knockin’ when we start at 7 p.m. EST/6 p.m. CST.
We don’t want you to miss this. You’ll want to be around while our commentary is mostly sober… Make sure you get here before pick 15.
Welcome to the NFL Draft 2009 live blog. Snag a spot on the couch and crack open a cold beverage of your choice. There’s going to be plenty of time to build a comfy groove on the couch today. Oh, and my excitement quivers are still going strong. How about you?
How to play: The window below is the live blog. You can sit back and watch it as we go, or if you want to be more involved — and we know you do — enter a name in the live blog window and send us a comment, question or justified outrage. All the comments go into a queue that we’ll approve as we go, so don’t freak out if your comment hasn’t appeared in the stream yet.
Pick out your Mel Kiper Jr. fro. We’re drafting! Look, Mom, no hands!
Oh yes, it’s time for the NFL draft, but the only thing worse than watching the NFL draft for hours and hours this weekend is watching it out without friends and snarky commentary.
Never fear. We have you covered.
Fools will be live blogging the draft from the very first pick to whenever Al Davis returns to his crypt to hang upside down in slumber. In other words, we’ll be here all weekend long, so tune into Fools early and often with your questions and your own snarky comments, however sober they may be.
We’ll talk up the fantasy impact of each player, discuss how wrong it would be for the Lions to take Matthew Stafford, and maybe even persuade Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay to settle their differences in the octagon — or a back alley.
Spread the word. The NFL draft has come to foolish town, and we cannot contain our excitement.
