The topic that has dominated sports talk radio lately -- at least in a city such as Houston that is experiencing a severe drought in anything worthwhile to talk about for its current franchises -- is the NFL Draft.
It has turned into an off-season Lollapalooza for NFL nuts, who all make their own mock drafts and argue passionately over the upside of some left tackle from Iowa. Or whether some Sun Conference safety has "character issues."
The NFL has stretched events out to almost unimaginable length, but the first round -- the glamor round -- is tonight.
And our own Sean Pendergast, who will be broadcasting on 1560 The Game along with ultimate draft geek Lance Zierlein, will be liveblogging events for us here at Hair Balls.
It all begins officially at 7 p.m., but check back before that and keep coming back as we see which teams choke and which shine.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
