NFL draft – craziness

Nowhere else do you see this type of unbridled craziness. You can only find it in the NFL. It is only in the NFL that you take a veteran quarterback like Peyton Manning and actually release him. The craziness of this particular move can only be understood if you’re both drunk and high or a delusional NFL football fan. Every year, for the last 10 or 15 years, right around draft time, people lose their minds. NFL fans, NFL owners, Scouts, everybody starts scrutinizing these young athletes.

LP sells for $155,401

From CNN.com:

Forty years after it was made, The Velvet Underground’s first recording has become a financial hit — in cyberspace.

Bought for 75 cents four years ago at a Manhattan flea market, the rare recording of music that ended up on the influential New York band’s first album, “The Velvet Underground & Nico,” sold on eBay for a closing bid of $155,401.

The buyer is a mystery, only identified by the eBay screen name: “mechadaddy.”

But a greater mystery endures: How did the 12-inch, acetate LP end up buried in a box of records at a flea market? more

My luck I would see the LP and think it was some type of China copy and would have put it back.
