The greatest moments in NFL Draft WAG history

The NFL Draft is a time for players to dress up, head to New York City, and soak in a fun evening that’s all about them. It’s a time when they can embrace Roger Goodell before spending the rest of their careers cursing him. The NFL Draft is also a time when players are shown on TV with their family members by their side. That means the draft is a time when wives and/or girlfriends...

Joe Namath does what he does best, yells at the 2013 NFL Draft crowd for very little reason

Joe Namath was brought on stage during the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft, and it was as awkwardly wonderful as we were hoping.

Legitimate Question: When Was The Last Time Joe Namath Wasn’t Drunk?

Might have to go back to before Super Bowl III. Hell, maybe even before he attended Alabama. This is what happens when you… [[ Read More ]]

Is Ezekiel ‘Ziggy’ Ansah wearing 3-D glasses at the NFL Draft? Yes, yes he is

No. 5-overall NFL Draft pick Ezekiel Ansah was definitely sporting lens-free 3-D glasses on stage with commissioner Roger Goodell.

First-round snub will only help Smith

The fine print on NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's invitation to elite players for a free trip to New York City strongly encourages them to stay as long as it takes to go. Or in other words, stay until you hear your name. In rare instances, this leads to the NFL version of the walk of shame, green room attendees not taken on Day 1 trudging back in their rumpled suits for Day...

Ziggy Ansah’s Mom Was Hoping He’d Get Drafted By A Team In Utah

BYU defensive end Ezekiel “Ziggy” Ansah went from obscurity and never having played football to becoming the #5 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. As we reported a few weeks ago, Ansah was also scheduled to graduate from BYU last night, but instead chose to attend the NFL Draft and shake Roger Goodell’s hand. Ansah’s mother traveled here all the way from Ghana expecting...

The NFL and the casual fan relationship

I’ll admit it, when it comes to the NFL, I am a pretty casual fan.  Being a Minnesota Vikings fan will do that to a person.  It wasn’t always this way, I remember as a kid re-enacting spin moves out in the yard and diving to catch passes I threw to myself all while wearing my #20 Darrin Nelson jersey.  But this isn’t about how the Vikings have torn my heart out so many times...

NFL Draft: What to Watch For Tonight

This year’s NFL Draft isn’t loaded with big-time names, but it will still make for tons of good television. Here are some things to watch out for: Roger Goodell hugs. The New York Times had a great explanation on how the tradition of picks hugging the commish came to be. I’m really hoping for an Obama-Pizza Guy hug moment. Or maybe one of these handshakes. Keep your eyes...

NFL to hang anti-discrimination posters in all 32 teams' locker rooms

It looks like rumors that an NFL player(s) publicly coming out as gay has already prepped players for the possibility that they could be sharing a locker room together but, if they didn't get the implied message of tolerance from the league, the NFL announced that it will be putting their anti-discrimination policies in writing and on the walls of every one of those locker rooms...

Cleveland Browns: To Trade or Not to Trade in the 2013 NFL Draft?

The Browns traded up for Trent Richardson in the 2012 Draft, will they trade down in the 2013 Draft? We are finally on the eve of the NFL draft.  The 2013 NFL Draft is set to get underway tomorrow night at 8pm in New York City at the Radio City Music Hall.  There will be no kick lines to be seen, but nervous twenty-somethings, and bear hugs by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will...
