May Day plans: 1st Mock draft, Derby thoughts (Rain Update)



               Mayday, mayday, first mock draft next week anyone?  Hoping to find between 15 and 30 Blue Noters to play GM for one or two teams and we’ll post a “ghost” first round. Everybody can throw in their Rangers pick at 10.


               During the weekend and Monday, request your two teams here and we’ll regroup on Monday. I’ll handle whatever teams are left over. 


             Also planning to post a "ghost" roster template based on a salary cap of $57.2 million in which you guys and gals can fill in blanks with names and $$$$$.





                  I’m not gonna bore you with analysis on a hockey blog, but I’m partial to Florida Derby winners, so I’ll take Ice Box, then Sidney’s Candy and Dublin in the mix. UPDATE: In the rain, add Noble's Promise to your box. .




Today’s Derby-themed Z-list of recommended tunes…


Dead Flowers, Steve Earle live

Wild Horses, Stones

The Angels Took My Racehorse Away, Richard Thompson

Chestnut Mare, Byrds

Pony Boy (traditional), Dickey Betts/Bruce Springsteen
