Not to brag, but I just went into another room and actually remembered why I went there. It was the bathroom, but still…

Trivia #3: As of the 2021 NFL Draft, which college has produced the most drafts picks in NFL history? – Texas, Michigan, Notre Dame, Southern California, Florida State, Florida, Rutgers, UMass Lowell

Maybe it’s me but I don’t think it feels much like April 29! It feels more like February 88th!

Useless information supposed to fire my imagination: As of Wednesday night, the Red Sox were 4th in the league in “hard” hit balls. Useless!

They said it: “When I say I’m here with Kev, I think that it really entails us managing this franchise together alongside [owner] Joe [Tsai] and [general manager] Sean [Marks], and just our group of family members that we have in our locker room, in our organization.” Kyrie Irving, self-appointed co-owner

Still the man! Over the past 12 months, Warren Buffet’s Berkshire shares have returned 30% vs. the S&P’s 8%.

Relief! After 40 consecutive failed power play attempts, nearly an entire month, the Bruins scored two PP goals in the third period last night in their 5-0 over the Sabres.

Wow, what a venue created in Las Vegas for the NFL Draft which kicked off last night! Big party! Tough to believe it was the event’s first time in Sin City.

Three separate $1,000 bets have been made on the Utah State Aggies to win college football’s national championship. The payout is $1M.

Yankee fans, as always, are thugs.

Speaking of the draft, I do enjoy it but… “The Pick Is In.” Well, if the pick is in, please tell us who it is rather than waiting 4-7 minutes! I did time them and sometimes they went to a commercial break after “the Pick Is In” and it was up to 7 minutes before we heard who was chosen.

When Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart, Rob Williams and Al Horford all play and the Celtics score ≥ 100 points Celtics are (23-0, 1.000) in their last 23 games

Happy Hairball Awareness Day!

Mumbling along to a song you don’t really know… but that 15 second part you do know is coming and you’re gonna own that!

“There’s colors on the street
Red, white and blue
People shufflin’ their feet
People sleeping in their shoes
But there’s a warning sign
on the road ahead
There’s a lot of people sayin’
we’d be better off dead
Don’t feel like Satan,
but I am to them
So I try to forget,
any way I can.

Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
Keep on rockin’ in the free world
Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
Keep on rockin’ in the free world.”

– Neil Young
