I’m fortunate to be at the intersection of two great football communities: fantasy football and draft evaluation.

So it’s an honor when I see these members of my audience also participating in contests like the Jadeveon Clowney event this month.
If you haven’t purchased the 2013 RSP, remember that it also includes the post-draft. If you are new to the blog, here’s a little more about the RSP and some sample material. Remember, 10 percent of each purchase is donated to Darkness to Light to providing training to communities to prevent and address the epidemic of sexual abuse.

These four have made a lot of great recording artists sound good in their time. You’d probably only know them if you were a student at the University of Miami. Glad I had that chance. The final movement is a lot of fun. You’re little kid will dig it.
Listens – The Saxophonist Who Kept Coltrane’s Interest Until Trane Died
The saxophonist is John Gilmore, who is best known for playing with Sun Ra. If you don’t know who Sun Ra is, you’ll either love or hate his music.
