NFL Draft Picks Attempt Fashion Moments From Home

The NFL held the first round of its first virtual NFL Draft on Thursday night, which turned out to be history-making moments for young prospects and a showcase of home outfits.
The NFL Draft has often been a sports fashion affair, alongside the NBA All-Star Weekend, NBA Draft and the Espy Awards. But how do young prospects have a fashionable introduction to the pro football world when they’re stuck at home?
Some received help from brands including 2019 Heisman Trophy winner and Cincinnati Bengals draft pick Joe Burrow, who wore a Nike custom ‘740’ long sleeve T-shirt from his home in Athens, Ohio. Top prospect and Miami Dolphins pick Tua Tagovailoa opted for a custom suit by Richards Bespoke in Nashville that sported a lining featuring photos of his grandparents.
Others went casual, like Arizona Cardinals pick Isaiah Simmons, who wore a T-shirt bearing KAWS artwork (family members wore similar shirts). Former Alabama wide receiver and Las Vegas Raiders pick Henry Ruggs III opted not to dress up, appearing on TV in a bathrobe for a partnership with Old Spice.

NFL, FaZe Clan Reveal Apparel Collab for Draft Day

The National Football League and gaming organization FaZe Clan have partnered to celebrate the first virtual NFL Draft and Draft-a-Thon fund-raiser with a capsule collection.
The capsule, which is composed of a T-shirt for $ 40 and a hoodie for $ 80, features NFL and FaZe Clan branding and logos for all NFL teams, as well as designs inspired by football arcade games from the late Nineties and early Aughts. The collection launches on April 23, the first day of the NFL Draft, on the NFL Shop and FaZe Clan web sites.
FaZe Clan chief executive officer Lee Trink said the capsule represents the first time the NFL has collaborated with a team outside of its organization. The professional football league’s relationship with FaZe Clan dates to the beginning of the 2019 season, when the league tapped the gaming organization to host a kickoff party that was attended by rapper and FaZe Clan member Lil Yachty and NBA All-Star Ben Simmons. Attendees also received jerseys on which they could press FaZe Clan logos.

NBA teams ‘terrified’ of Warriors’ 2020 draft pick, Tom Haberstroh says

At the moment, the 4-19 Warriors are the furthest thing from terrifying. "The people I talk to around the league are really worried they are going to trade that first-round pick, the 2020 pick, because if they load up with an All-Star-type player with that pick, they are terrified," Haberstroh said during the Warriors-Hornets telecast on NBC Sports Bay Area on Wednesday. The Warriors are expected to have a healthy Steph Curry and Klay Thompson back next season to go along with Draymond Green, D'Angelo Russell and Kevon Looney.

Donald Trump Can Be Stopped — Draft Kim Kardashian

With Donald Trump leading the presidential race in the Republican Party by a “huge” margin, the Democratic Party needs to get serious here and produce a world-class elite candidate who can compete down at this level.

The obvious choice is Kim Kardashian.

Kim would wrest media coverage away from Trump. On recent evenings, all three networks of CNN, MSNBC and Fox News abandoned their prime-time news programs, and instead cut away for lengthy segments to a live video feed of Trump giving speeches. Flipping channels provided no relief because they all showed the exact same thing, like a presidential address. Trump was blabbing on and on about his own magnificence without saying a single word of substance, and all three news networks remained locked onto it.

Kim could give speeches that say absolutely nothing as well, but she could deliver them in a bikini.

Now that would trump Trump.

Plus, Kim is far more qualified to be president than Trump. She is way more famous. Her reality TV show was far better than Trump’s. And Kim has 35 million followers on Twitter compared to Trump’s paltry four million followers. It’s not even close.

The presidential debates between the two would really distinguish the best candidate to lead this nation. Trump would start by asserting that Kim is not a “10.” But this would not go over very well because the voters would see that Trump just attacks opponents without any basis in reality.

Trump would then seek to impugn Kim’s moral integrity by reminding everyone that she made a sex video. Kim, however, would turn the tables on Trump and create a you’re-no-Jack-Kennedy moment that would achieve presidential debate history by challenging Trump to make his own sex video and post it online so voters would have a basis for comparing the two candidates.

Actually, this is not such a bad idea. After all, with Trump proclaiming that voters should just “trust” him that he would be a good president based upon his personality instead of having to present any specific policies, voters do need some sort of a way to assess his ability to perform.

Now, some say that the Democratic Party should just stick with its current front-runner, Hillary Clinton. But Hillary has some very big problems in this new upside-down universe. She is intelligent, experienced and accomplished. That’s not good. Hillary also has thought through many difficult issues facing this nation and she has developed smart policy positions on how she would seek to solve these issues as president. Big mistake. It’s just difficult to see what all that dull and boring stuff has to do with anything.

So the Democrats need to rise to the occasion here and kick-off a movement to draft Kim.

Trump versus Kim will be the greatest spectacle of our time. The news networks will achieve record ratings and, of course, record profits. It will be the greatest reality TV show ever.

And a sad day for democracy.

It’s Never Love at First Draft

Why would anyone want to read the original manuscript of a young writer who subsequently wrote a world-renowned classic, except to trace the development of that writer? Why, upon reading it, would anyone ascribe meaning to that manuscript so as to diminish, question or require a re-thinking of the writer’s fabulously successful published work? That first manuscript served as a waystation on a young writer’s journey to produce her novel, nothing else. It merits no consideration in and of itself.

Harper Lee’s Go Set A Watchman was not given an offer for publication back when it was first submitted to its publisher nearly 50 years ago, for a simple, perfect, reason: It was not good enough. This status quo endured for another simple reason: Harper Lee did not want it published, and her circle of intimates honored her preferences. Most likely, she did not view it as worthy of publication. After all, it was simply a draft and Lee was a champion of great writing.

I can only see one reason why Lee’s Go Set A Watchman found its way to publication in 2015: The self-interest of Lee’s publisher, HarperCollins trumped the author’s own long-standing and well-known preference. It’s hard to believe Ms. Lee cares about money after all these years, although not at all hard to believe that, with the passing of her older sister less than a year ago, who also served her advocate and legal protector, Lee was bullied into agreeing to publication.

It’s easy to imagine why Tay Hohoff, Ms. Lee’s original editor at J.B. Lippincott, worked closely with the then-budding writer to develop the rough manuscript she submitted into a different story. Simply, Ms. Hohoff didn’t believe the original story was worthy of publication, but she believed in the writer’s promise. Ms. Lee had work to do. A lot. The original manuscript may have shared the same locale and some main characters as the published novel, but that’s it. Kudos to the writer, and likely the editor as well, for reshaping instead of abandoning those ingredients and combining them into a masterpiece.

Having recently completed the years-long process of writing a recently published book, I can easily imagine how Harper Lee’s experience as a new writer could have mirrored mine in some way. (Not for a moment would I delude myself by thinking my book’s future will mirror To Kill A Mockingbird.)

I don’t know how many short essays I wrote in the run-up to starting my memoir, some about topics that ended up in the book, many that didn’t. When I finally started writing the memoir itself, I spent a year stringing together sentences and paragraphs before I realized I didn’t know where the story was heading. I couldn’t move it forward. Everywhere I looked, it seemed the action doubled back on itself into a cycle of sameness. I needed help.

Luckily, I found some, in the shape of a writing coach/editor who knew her stuff. A writer so green I needed a formal introduction to phrases like “story arc” (when I first heard the phrase, I thought of rainbow colored paragraphs), I discovered much of the work with my editor, Kelley Eskridge, involved not just writing on my own, but researching ideas and backstory, sketching out possible themes and metaphors, talking, thinking, musing, debating, and yes, even some negotiating.

I’d written one hundred plus pages, tens of thousands of words, and after reading all that, Kelley didn’t know what my story was about. As it turned out, I didn’t either. Was it about rowing? My dysfunctional family? My relationship with my mother?

I probably tossed out more words during my writing process than made it into my memoir. I’m not the only writer for whom that may be true. Much of writing, it turns out, is rewriting.

Go Set A Watchman should not be viewed as another Harper Lee novel, nor even as a precursor to To Kill A Mockingbird. It represented a transitory stage of Lee’s thinking, certainly a stage that she devoted countless hours to constructing, but it was an unfinished product. It was neither well-written nor a gripping story. (I personally found myself bored and unable to connect to any of the characters). It was a draft that held a kernel of a great idea, that an experienced editor saw and helped a novice writer develop to the point of excellence. Maybe the experience killed off Lee’s interest in writing further; maybe the experience satisfied her to the point that she didn’t want to attempt another round; maybe her unpredictably wild success sent her scurrying into lifelong seclusion. We will never really know.

Here’s what we do know: To Kill A Mockingbird is an amazing novel. No matter what Go Set A Watchman says or doesn’t say, no matter how the characters who appear in both stories are presented or misrepresented, the real novel is the one that was originally published, not the one that was originally submitted. What emerged from that early draft, an accumulation of discussion, debate, deep thought, and who knows how many crumpled pages, crossed out words and sentences, deleted paragraphs, rewritten sections, was a masterpiece. That’s what we’ve been reading for nearly fifty years, and that’s all that deserves to be remembered, not the mercenary act of a self-interested publishing house that took advantage of an aging, vulnerable writer.
