Florio Jr. takes the reins during the draft

2011draft

One of these days, I won’t be doing this anymore.  Florio Jr. already has put me on notice that he intends to be the one who sends me floating on a sheet of frozen tundra.

And so on the third day of the 2011 draft, he parked himself into the seat between yours truly and Rosenthal at Radio City Music Hall, and he took over the duties of tweeting each pick.

He did it until he got bored.  Which happened after about 14 selections.

    I don’t see Rosenthal. Did the kid sit on him by accident?

    This your way of being the “cool dad” by putting your kid on your blog?

    make him do it. Tell him he’s got a good guide. It could come in handy some day.

    He’s not hideous looking. Luckily for him, his mother’s genes are dominant.

    The kid has to be better than MDS and Silva & Rosenthal.

    He just HAS to be.

    At least you can take some consolation in the fact that he does not want to follow in your footsteps as a lawyer…*says the law student during finals week/draft weekend

    …tweeting each pick. He did it until he got bored…

    Chinese kids younger than him are working 18 hour days putting iPads together. What’s this country coming to?

    Somehow I can’t picture ESPN or SI.com bragging that their kids are actually running the show behind the scenes.. Then again, it explains some of the wierd things that are said and done on this site.

    i thought that might be where all the misspelled words on PFT were coming from.

    Great for your kid but, this has anything to do with football….

    Good thing you aren’t an air traffic controller like that guy at JFK who got into trouble for letting his kid talk on the frequency. This reminds me of an old Andy Rooney quote. “When you call a plumber that is named “Jones and Son” ask for Jones to do the work.”

    Who cares? He’s probably mine, anyways, hence my name.
