My employer has thoughtlessly demanded that I work from rising in the morning until turning in at night, so I've been unavoidably detained. I know I owe you a PART 2 to that PART 1 of a few days ago. I'll get to it.
So I'm giving you a cut-rate post and asking you to give the Nation your thoughts on The Ticket's draft coverage.
My cut-rate view: It was excellent, as always. I follow exactly one college football team, and if the players involved aren't from that team my interest is somewhat attenuated. But during my normal listening hours, I listen to The Ticket's draft coverage as though it were a regular showgram.
I have two highlights, and one new element that I'd like to hear your views on.
The highlights, which I think most Confessors will agree with, are
(1) Bob Sturm's analysis. I have no idea if he's right or wrong most of the time, but it sells me. I especially enjoy it when he cocks his radio eye at a proposed pick, asking how that pick would fit into the selecting team's scheme. Ooo, good point!
(2) Junior Miller's droll mini-summaries of the players selected. Very funny. More important, he's trying. Rewarding the P1 for tuning in -- he cares enough about a quality presentation to give them something to anticipate. I think it almost always works.

Thanks for checking in during this quiet time.
