Anything - anything! - but the NFL draft!!!!

Well, the worst day in sports just keeps growing. Now, it's the worst extended weekend in sports.

The only five things in sports worse than watching the NFL Draft on ESPN:

5. Paying Carlos Zambrano $91.5 million to be a set-up man. (Not that any team would be stupid enough to do that.)

4. Running one's fingers through Mel Kiper Jr.'s hair.

3. Forking over hard-earned money to watch the White Sox lose 12-0 on a 39-degree night at The Cell.

2. Having to suck up to Jay Cutler, as everybody in the Bears organization has to do.

1. Letting one's daughter hang out with Ben Roethlisberger.


  1. Moving Big Z to the pen certainly has a chance to be a disaster. But I don't think his salary should even enter into it. His salary is a sunk cost--he'll get it no matter what. The debate should be whether this is the best move for the team right now, not whether you should pay someone $18 million to be a set-up man.

  2. I think Lou is doing it to light a fire under the rest of the team. Moving Zambrano to the pen means anyone can be removed from their position on the club. Soriano had his best game in a couple of years after the announcement.

  3. I'm glad they're having the first round on a Thursday. Gives me even less of a reason to waste my time watching the rest of it this weekend.

  4. your daughter is probably old enough to do whatever she wants...just think he might be your soninlaw..
