No, when I said "expert", I meant like that shitty Travolta movie

On my way home I heard on one of the local sports talk stations an interview with NFL Draft "expert" Vinnie Iyer, who apparently gets paid to know about football prospects.

The local guy asked him what Vinnie knew about Calvin Johnson from Georgia Tech, apparently wanting the expert to gush about the tech Sophmore's size, hands, speed, etc.

Vinnie responded that he was probably a late second day guy at best and that his big board had at least 120 receivers ahead of him.

Uhh, dude, he ain't in the draft.

The hosts said nothing. We must compliment our Emperor's vestments.
