No, you didn't have a single player selected in this year's NFL Draft, Texas. Towson did. So did Marist. So did Maine. UConn had two. We can understand if you're a little upset and disappointed.
But maybe this is an opportunity. There are achievements besides pro football you'll get to focus on now. Maybe you'll build that coffee table like you always said you would, Texas. Maybe you'll dust off the Rosetta Stone CDs and get your French on point. Not just good, but REALLY good. Fool a Parisian good. You'll have time to cook more, which relaxes you. "Say, have you tried this fresh pesto Texas made?" they'll say. And you'll blush and feign modesty. Because you're Texas, dammit! The NFL doesn't tell you what you're worth! You know you've got talent and drive!
And you know who else the NFL never gave a damn about? Steve Winwood.
HOOK 'EM STEVE.
