The last few weeks have been tough on all of us. The thing that non sports fans don't understand about those of us that love games and competition is not only are we watching the same news but we lost our greatest escape too. I realize that can be said for just about everyone but my point is for the people that say "It's just sports." Maybe it is to you but it's way more to us. Sports fans know this is for the greater good but it still sucks. I can't tell you how happy this Tweet from Field Yates made me.

Not only in one Tweet did Field distract me from the fact that there's no MLB, NHL or anything else going on but he got me thinking about the draft itself and how it's still going to happen. So even though I don't know when baseball or hockey or basketball will be back I know the NFL draft is a month from today. That gives me something to look forward to.
