Earlier this week, the UFL — the attempted upstart league that would challenge the NFL (ed. note: Yeah right, never heard that one before) — held its inaugural draft. In the second round, the team from San Francisco drafted a defensive end out of Auburn, Marquies Gunn. Normally, that might not make headlines, except for the fact that Mr. Gunn has a few, how should we say, indiscretions on his record.
(Dude, don’t be so threatened, he just wants to know if you want any cocaine …)
Yes, the aptly named Mr. Gunn is a drug dealer. According to this report from the ASSOCIATED PRESS, Gunn was arrested in February for trying to sell cocaine to an undercover police officer three times across a six month period. Hey, we can at least give him credit for his persistence, right?
We, the ladies of Ladies… are excited to be spending NFL Draft Weekend with you. To get started, we will take a look at draft day essentials.
(Quinn or Russell, indeed.)
This is a long weekend - sixteen hours of listening to middle-aged men fawn over men in their young twenties. Can you handle it, Mr. or Ms. Football Fan? What about you, Mr. General Manager? (Unfortunately, only Mr. as of right now. One day…) Are you ready for the stresses of picking players for your team, not to mention, picking the appropriate snacks for your war room? Worry not, friends. The Ladies are here to help you through the draft weekend. Read more…
Take this opportunity to spend 16 hours with some Ladies, and you won’t even get in trouble with your wife! We will be liveblogging the entire draft right here on SbB, from Jake Long to Mr. Irrelevant.
Mel Kiper’s hair, round table discussions of the draftees’ girlfriends, and of course, the best football discussion this side of Matt Millen’s living room. (Isn’t that where the Lions keep their war room?)
Cinnamon Girl, La M. Alana, Empress Act, the Dame of Extra Time and I, ChiTown Chick, will be guiding you through one of the most fun non-sporting sporting events on the sports calendar. Not only that, you will get to join with us, as we will use the fun Cover It Live software that allows you to get involved in our liveblog. Start getting your provisions ready now, and we will kick off at about 3 pm Eastern time.
