It’s time for a new feature here at First Draft. It’s my busy season so I’ll have less time for long posts. (Of course, every time I say something like that I post a long un.) So, I’ll be posting quick items under this rubric from time to time. I also like using the cool elpee cover with the Who in football helmets. Rock on, readers.

BUT every time the cameras show former President Beavis they lose me. I’m also a National League kinda guy so what I can I tell ya?

I couldn’t find a clip of Monsieur de Pury saying Sucklord but here’s a sample of his fabulousness for those of you who haven’t seen the show:
