I love football, but nothing is more boring than the NFL draft.
ESPN is running the first couple of rounds from 4:00 to 9:00 tomorrow with ESPN2 picking up the coverage from 9 to 11; if that's not enough for the NFL enthusiasts, ESPN will be running Day 2 coverage from 10:00 to 6:00 on Sunday.
Hooray. Cue the eye roll.
Don't watch the NFL Draft.
Here's your day in hockey:
3:00 PM ET - Philadelphia vs Pittsburgh - Game 6 - NBC (Pitt leads 3-2)
We've got the Battle of Pennsylvania, not to mention what has probably been the most physical series of the first round. Flyer fans hate Crosby. Penguin fans hate Richards. Everyone hates Sean Avery - but that's not important. It's going to be an exciting game, and anyone who chooses to watch Matt Stafford become the #1 pick instead of Evgeni Malkin is a joke.
Huge break - hopefully this one goes to 5 OTs.
9:00 PM ET - Calgary vs Chicago - Game 5 (Series tied 2-2)
I 'm pretty sure this game isn't on national TV, but if you have Versus, it's worth watching. It feels like we haven't watched a Chicago home playoff game in years.
10 PM ET - Anaheim vs San Jose - Game 6 - Versus (Ducks lead 3-1)
In the shocker (or maybe not) of the first round, the Ducks look to extend what appears to be a cursed Sharks team. Joe Thornton is a good player, but he will NEVER be great until leads his team deep into the playoffs.
No Cup for Roenick.
It's the NFL Draft vs the NHL Playoffs.
