SlickBomb's NFL Draft Report, Part 2

None of us at KSK were able to attend this weekend's draft. But longtime Deadspin commenter SlickBomb had the testicular fortitude to get up at o'dark thirty to go wait in line at 5AM for the draft. Here, he provides us with a photo diary/KSK merchandise infomercial. Big thanks to SlickBomb for this. Judging by some of the photos, he may have Parkinson's Disease. We wish him a speedy recovery.

Read Part 1 HERE. Up now: A cornucopia of fans get their hands on the Internet's hottest schwag. Click on any of the pics to see a bigger version.

Three fans of sub-par teams. Also funny? Outside of their appearance? The fact that but a few hours later the Raiders fan's jersey would be out of date.

I wasn't the only one a fan of KSK's merch. Every time someone gave it a look it got more than a polite laugh:

Now kids, did you ask your mom if you could come to the draft?

This guy named his kid after Troy Aikman. There is no punchline here.

The back of their shirts read "Anybody BUT Quinn!" It gets me even now.

A Giants fan covering his Strahan style gap-tooth, and a Bengals fan not playing cornhole.

The draft attracts all kids, but these guys were the freakshow's freakshow.*

These guys loved not only the shirt, but the name of the website.

These guys were fans as well. KSK's taking over the world.

It's good to see what's Lattimer's been up to after his time at ESU. Also, the stuff in the brown bag? A 20 oz. can of King Cobra. You stay classy, Raiders fans.

"Now, act like your GM just chose the 4th WR in just as many years."

A father-son Raiders fan duo. The Dad was convinced that if Rich Gannon stayed healthy in 2003, the Raiders were Superbowl bound. Just pure comedy.

Bills fans, rockin' the shocker, not enjoying the J.P. Losman experience.

*I tease, but these were actually some pretty interesting people. They are the stereotypical "cool" aunts and uncle of Wisconson (now Browns') OL Joe Thomas. They both came in from Badger territory to support of Joe, and to enjoy the city for the weekend. I got to speak with them again when they also snuck into the VIP section. Very, proud, happy, and nice people.

Thanks, Slick. Up next: Part 3: Actually INSIDE the draft! Hooray!

The Program FTW!

From that movie, I remember Lattimer the most; how he dwarfed his prospective date-rape victim and his urine tranfusion.

Great (i.e. better) pictures, BTW. Huzzah, Sir.

Yep....totally know those dudes in the Browns gear...

Nothing is funnier than an overweight middle-aged bills fan flipping the shocker. You are too cool for me!

Couldn't have said it better myself.

slickbomb, you're owning it.

The aunt and uncle look like the type of family members I wish I had on occasion.

This post really captures the excitement of waiting in line for the draft. I can't wait for the next installment: Getting Searched by Security.

I kid, I kid. Since there's no way I'd ever haul my ass to Radio City at 5am, this is the only way I'll ever learn what goes down there.

I'm pretty sure Joe Thomas' aunt and uncle went on a post-draft rape-and-murder spree, a la Mickey and Mallory.

I could be wrong.

Unsilent Majority said...

Big Joe's Aunt and Uncle are cool with me.

Trader Rick said...

I didn't know there were women with Big Joe's aunt's look outside Bawmore.

Coz said...

This shameless promotion of KSK apparel is a disgusting act.

Redhead said...

Hey, no making fun of the Wisconsin people!

A 20 oz. can of King Cobra. You stay classy, Raiders fans

Classic, classic stuff right there. It would be a Raider fan out there drinkin' some malt liquor at 8am or whatever time it was on line.

God bless Bills fans. God bless the Sex Cannon.

BeaverFever said...

you have to be cool if you have gray hair and a soul patch and your wife is rocking a mohawk.

also, yes God bless the Bills fans we have been through much pain and suffering. Go Sabres ! I'm flipping the shocker as i type.

Grimey said...

Wow... where can I pick up one of those Joe Thomas T-shirts?

The Comish (sic) said...

Most hilarious picture: the Eagles fan throwing a shocker, but either he has no idea how it actually works, or he's dating the girl from the donkey show in Boystown.
