Draft Talk; New Orleans Pelicans Have A Scary Mascot; Does Canned Beer Beat Bottled?

Rotolo's is celebrating their one year anniversary in Shreveport this week! More importantly, it's owner/operators, Jennifer and John Psalmonds' sons birthday! Happy Birthday JACKSON PSALMONDS! 

Baba Ganoush: The Cowboys need a safety but it starts in the front. Pressure makes your secondary look a lot better. People can say what they want to about Ware, but he's making them look better. He'll restructure and probably make half of what he made last year but the Cowboys will be okay. I think they're going to go interior line. You probably won't see an offensive player until the fourth round. Second round they'll go defensive line, then safety.

REGIONAL UROLOGY: The RU! R. U. having flow problems? Let the "people plumbers" check your pipes! Guys over 30, once you reach 30 your testosterone changes and can start to decrease. Have you been feeling lethargic, not up to activities you used to be only a year ago?! If not, then that's awesome, but if so, go let Dr. Jimmy Moss and crew check you out at Regional Urology!

How are your Cowboys shaping up?
Stefan: First of all, I'm not a Cowboy's fan. Not at all. Not a Dallas Cowboys fan. I was calling because I was listening to the show yesterday with Matt Yoder and the first overall pick. Unfortunately I'm a Houston Texans fan and I couldn't disagree with him more. Johnny Manziel is the worst pick for us. The way he carries the ball, the way he sets up, it's setting up for turnovers and injuries, just like Michael Vick.

  • SEC Update

JR: I think Ed Hardy has lost his mind again. There is no way Manziel or any quarterback should go in the top five during this draft. Let's look at 2002-2012  drafts when a quarterback was chosen in the top five and have Super Bowls. In 10 years, there have been only two QB's to win, and better yet play in a Super Bowl. If I'm picking, I'm not picking a quarterback. 
Fletch: (To EH) Has JR knocked off your hat?
EH: My hat hasn't been knocked off! He needs to wear his own helmet and see this!

Fletch's Bold Brash Draft Prediction:
Saints have to be a little more judicious. I think the Saint's draft an LSU player this year, and I wouldn't doubt that it might be Lamin Barrow.

Ed Hardy found this picture for us. The story was on "WOMEN SEEKING JOBS". If this doesn't make your day better, I don't know what can. 

Beer in a can tastes better than beer in a bottle. Cans offer an air tight seal and shield against UV light as opposed to bud light. 

Fletch: Canned beer taste better.
EH: I'm a bottled beer kind of guy.
Syd: I think cans taste better, but also, you can take them to more places.
Cupcake: I like bottles, I like the way they feel. (Weird.)
Fletch: Ed Hardy, do you see your coolness factor? You've got me and Syd with cans, and then Cupcake with you. 

JP: I've been told this by people who know beer and actually have jobs with it. The benefits of cans, like Syd said, is that you can take them places, but also it protects the yeast and hops because light affects them. So with bottled beer, if you have it in the sun then it gets dark or even if you have it in your refrigerator, every time you open the door the light comes on and goes off, it can change it.
