1.12 

Player: Baker Mayfield - QB - Cleveland Browns

Song: Skyscraper - Touché Amoré featuring Julien Baker

This is such a beautiful song. It's about Jeremy Bolm of Touché taking his Mom on a dream trip to NYC while she was battling cancer.

2.01

Player - Kyler Murray - QB - Arizona Cardinals

Song - Cardinal Song - The National

These two picks were way off the cheat sheet, but I believe in these cats.

Last year, because of sixteen people and superflex, QBs were ranked higher than they are on this year's custom cheat sheet, but fortune favors the bold (hopefully it's not bold like Dodgeball).

Andrew Luck - QB

Primus - Is It Luck?

Not sure if he's going to play.  Just like the player/song combo. Listened to Sean Lennon with Maron on the WTF podcast and been enjoying his recent collaboration with Claypool, so I've had Primus on the brain.

I just like the pick, frankly. Checking the song now. Ooh. I like it.

She’s one of my favorite current artists, when she puts out a new album, I’m all over it. Oh I almost took Adams with my first pick so this was an easy call.

Both of the Claypool - Lennon Delirium records are great. I’d say it’s like the Beatles on acid, but well...

Changed my name over in Land Of Confusion to Baker Street. I think my avatar makes it pretty obvious who my team is, though, so I'll spare you all the updates from hereon out.

OK, got both, so I don't get yelled at by @El Floppo ! ;)

Sticking with RB.

2.06 - RB - Todd Gurley - LA Rams.

Gurley went to U of Georgia, located in Athens, GA; home of R.E.M.

R.E.M. - Radio Song (Unplugged). Love the R.E.M. MTV Unplugged performance.

Fun draft so far- I like the 2 QB and lower stakes so we get people making more interesting picks

2.08 James Conner - RB Pittsburgh Steelers (Pitt)

David Bowie - Heroes

https://youtu.be/xEqSOst1dg8

James Conner was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma during college while he was rehabbing a torn ACL. He beat cancer and the odds by making it to the NFL.

I love the choice and song connection there, he's one of my favorites in the league

Zeke and Gurley- embracing the volatility. Your team could be a monster.

This might be a long year for Baker Street.

Do we want to put a cap on tonite (maybe have @Mrs. Rannous and @Eephus try and finish the round, maybe do their next two picks each) and then start tomorrow morning?

 

Maybe, tho if Eephus and Mrs R are around, they might just want to get their 2 picks out of the way. I am fine with just letting it run untill it hits a wall tonight. I assume many are headed to bed soon anyway.

Yeah, that is what I was thinking. Figure Eephus would want to get his 3rd rounder in, since he is west coast.

Eephus is West Coast and Mrs. Rannous is a night owl. That makes a bit of a difference. How much? Dunno, but it does.

We don't need to artificially stop tonight - no pressure to pick but if you're here and up, fire away.
