Every year at the draft, representatives pass out promotional materials for “Mr. Irrelevant Week” in Newport Beach. We’re always happy to see them for one reason:
It’s time to go home.
The Houston Texans selected Rice linebacker Cheta Ozougwu with the 254th pick of the draft, making him “Mr Irrelevant” for the rest of his life. Or at least until next year at this time.

I’m going to jump in a cab and take the ten minute ride home. And then probably start posting again.
Thanks for reading; it’s been fun. Now back to life in a lockout. (Sigh.)
UPDATE: Just to clarify for worried Texans fans, that’s not Ozougwu in the picture. That man is Paul Salata, who started “Mr. Irrelevant Week” in Newport Beach, CA 35 years ago and reads off the final pick of every draft. He repeatedly called Ozougwu “Cheddar.”
