    I assume that's 3PM eastern time so it starts at 2PM Houston time.


    Less than 2 weeks away!!

    Sounds like a plan to me. Now if it would finally get here, that'd be great. This offseason has been too long!

    Hopefully that means that by the time the Texans are up, it'll be reasonable enough lol. Man, I don't think I could ever get up for 5 AM for any sporting event unless it was either the Super Bowl, World Series, or NBA Finals

    Now what am I supposed to do with the rest of the day before 2pm? I have blocked that day for so many years, I would probably irritate friends, family and neighbors if I now tried to spend time with them that morning. Grr!

    I really don't understand what they're thinking. Cutting down the time for picks is fine, but why would they also cut one round from the first day? Supposedly this is done to help the broadcasts - how does that make people more likely to watch/care? Cutting the time for picks should have shortened up the time on its own.
    If anything, this makes me less likely to watch the draft, not more... After the Texans pick, I'll mainly be watching from curiosity, and just in case there's a trade.

    Me too. Besides, are they not giving up advertizing money? I've decided to slide my tanning chair onto the balcony and watch the boats go by on Clear Lake. A huge lunch that leads to belching and farting in abundance will also come into play.

    Reading this makes me sad. I moved from a waterfront condo in Seabrook to Lake Livingston. Boy do I miss sitting out on my patio feeding seagulls and watching the boats go by. Sure dont miss the traffic though.

    Anyway, dont get moving the third round either. Why not just make every pick 5 minutes and do the first 4 rounds Sat?

    Yeah, Brittany and Madonna cancelled coming over due to the change. Maybe if I had your chili? Nah, girls don't fart so why have them over?

    If you lived on the water in last 8 years you probably saw me fly buy in either Quiet Thunder or 1 BADBOY. Sorry you left heaven for Lake L. Does it have any water remaining?

    I've never quite figured out the difference between our time and there time especially with daylight saving and eastern, central, pacific time zones... 7am is sweet.
