2009 NFL Draft

At the mid point of the off season, the NFL holds its annual draft. Teams get to select collegiate players to help re-make their franchises. It's a day of hope for fans of all teams. Regardless of how your team finished, you can always feel good about the influx coming your way. Warren and I enjoyed watching the Eagles select two outstanding players in the first two rounds (Jeremy Maclin, WR and LeSean McCoy, RB) and proceed to wheel and deal their way to more picks next year and a good sized/quality class for this year! Oh yeah, and it was Warren's birthday too! Happy Birthday, Warren!
