Until the Blue Jackets game started Thursday night, I was tuned into ESPN for the start of the NFL draft. There are times when some of that network's programming makes my head hurt but other times they produce some pretty outstanding programming. Last night was one of those nights.
In the span of 15 minutes, I went from laughing hysterically to being moved to tears. The laughs came when comedian and impressionist Frank Caliendo did his impression of ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. It was spot on. The tears came on a feature on John Tuggle, who was the final selection in the famous 1983 draft. He was selected by the Giants, made the team but then tragically died at the age of 25 of cancer. It was a moving story which featured a Bill Parcells I've never seen before.
If you missed one, the other or both, I thought I'd share them. Enjoy.
