Major Test on Sunday Night

I’ve got a draft on Sunday night, and I’m scared as hell. I’ve competed with the experts for many years, and if you ask them all right after forcing them to take a truth serum, they’d tell you that they fear me.

    And here we are. Week One. Thursday Night Football. A damp, fall-like evening in the Northeast. The perfect evening to kickoff the NFL’s 50th SuperBowl Season.
