Good afternoon Coug fans! I hope you’re all staying hydrated. That just seemed like good advice to put there, and since we’re all stuck at home we might as well drink lots of water.
Yesterday had round one of the NFL draft, and as I’m sure you’re all aware, rounds two and three begin tonight! According to the NFL Draft Tracker, we have two familiar names in the race- Dezmon Patmon and Anthony Gordon. Patmon has a 5.64 grade, and Gordon has a 5.58. Since Brandon Arconado is left off that list, can we have him back? I’m kidding (sort of). I would take all of them back if I could- but it’s time for them to spread their wings and fly.
I’ve also seen some social media posts from current players on the team dreaming about the next year’s draft, and to that I say: you all grow up too fast.
For some personal anecdotes, unfortunately Gardner Minshew has not crashed any of my Zoom classes. As it turns out, that is a good thing, because my classwork has increased quite a bit. Being a student right now is very strange.
In my continued search for hobbies during quarantine, I have landed on trashy reality television. I would not recommend this. I also might take up knitting. I doubt I’ll be recommending that either. Moral of that story is to stay home!
Luckily, we’ve been able to tide ourselves over with some exciting recruits. There is hope for live sports. There is also hope that I will land on better hobbies. How is everyone doing out there? Any hobbies to recommend? I will try anything at this point.
Something nice is that I can hear the little kids in my neighborhood playing outside. The Pacific Northwest has been oddly kind with it’s weather, so go on your seventh walk today!
