With the tragic school shooting in Connecticut on Friday, the hot-button issue is gun control or the lack thereof, but it's an issue I could care less about. In fact, this is the last time I'm going to use the word "gun" or mention firearms in this blog.

"and with the second pick, the Detroit Lions select Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska" ... I'll admit, I was downright giddy with excitement when the Lions chose Suh with their first pick of the 2010 draft, who wouldn't be?
