Restless NFL Draft Eve; Stafford Definitely the Number One Pick?

What a night.

I'm on my way to Lafayette, LA, and about an hour east of Houston, the 'ole car just went dead. While we were driving down I-10.

I'm not sure what is wrong the car quite yet. Possibly an alternator because the car was getting absolutely no electricity.

So, I'm currently in a La Quinta Inn (Nice people, these LaQuintas) in Baytown, TX, riding out what is the biggest storm I've seen since I was in India during monsoon season last year. Sideways rain even....

So, I'm blogging and checking out the stories tonight. Here is what's going on:

Matthew Stafford is apparently very close to becoming a Detroit Lion. Pride of Detroit has details as of about a half hour ago. Via

A source inside the Detroit Lions organization told’s Thomas George that neither the team nor QB Matthew Stafford believe any differences in contract talks will stop the Georgia quarterback from becoming the No. 1 overall pick in Saturday’s draft.

That sounds pretty definite to me. Hash this one out in the comments while I get at least two beers in me.
