The NFL Draft was this last weekend. I’ve got a handful of friends that I talk to about the Indianapolis Colts, and we were pretty excited for how this whole thing shook out.
Truth be told if it wasn’t for those few friends I might not give a rip about football anymore. Some of my peers have successfully swayed/shamed me out of general sports fandom, which I feel conflicted about, because if you have a hobby and you like it then what gives, but they do have a point when it comes to being too focused on something that someone else does, instead of doing things yourself.
That’s why I took down that poster in my office of Luck’s fumble recovery from 2014. It was a cool and exciting moment but I had nothing to do with it and I don’t want to be that Annoying Sports Dad to my kids. I replaced the poster with drawings from my books. And I need to get better at drawing.
Anyway, congrats to the Colts on a good draft, I look forward to a winning season where we don’t start slow and struggle for three months only to miss the playoffs because our DB depth is weak and our quarterback sucks.
