BFTB After Dark: Papa Doug is a Jackass

Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports

April Fools' got you all. Now let's talk about the NFL Draft!

Happy April Fools' Day, y'all. The reaction to today's post about Doug Manchester buying Vox Media was incredible, from the comments on the story to the tweets and text messages I received. Thank you for making me feel a little less freakishly gullible.

Nobody's buying Vox Media, despite how many rich people are writing them fat checks. I'm going nowhere and there will be no sign of Mr. Kaplan on these pages for any reason but to occasionally scare the living crap out of you.


There are five days until the NCAA Final Four commences in Atlanta, Georgia. The San Diego Padres have already played, and lost, their first regular season game of 2013. Looks like you're stuck with the usual choices (NBA or NHL) this evening, if you wish to comment on sports below.

Let's open this up for those that actually read these things. It's probably about time for me to start doing Draft Profiles on certain college players. Which guys would you want me to take a look at?
