    I tried unsuccessfully multiple times to post the link but check out the interesting piece on the draft and Barry Sanders in the Detroit News if you missed it.

    I give the Lions a B on the draft.
    That's assuming VanNoy can play.
    Would like to see MegaBron catch about 60 balls.
    Pett caught 41 last year.

    Interesting take on what fans think teams will draft. Looks like no one had Ebron going to anybody.

    But there was only a few hits and they usually got A's

    L.Webster was so unknown CBS had him as a TE partly because he was so fast 4.58

    Lions receiver Calvin Johnson has never gotten in trouble. He recently got himself in the middle of some potential trouble, reportedly.

    According to TMZ, the alleged mother of Johnson’s six-month-old child contends that Johnson’s girlfriend threatened to unfurl the maneuver known as the “molly wop.”

    For those not familiar with the term and/or those without access to UrbanDictionary.com, to “molly wop” means “[t]o reach waaay back with your pimp hand, damn near knocking oneself off balance to deliver a massive blow with an inside closed fist to the temple of your hoe or foe.” (In the interests of completeness, there are alternative definitions, but they would be difficult for a female to perform.)

    Citing a police report, TMZ explains that Shallyn Blanton claims Johnson arrived for a visit with the child on May 25. Johnson brought his girlfriend, Brittney McNorton. Blanton alleges that McNorton’s presence violated the custody agreement. One thing led to another (as things often do), and McNorton eventually (allegedly) “leapt from the car screaming that she was going to ‘molly wop yo ass!”

    According to the team’s official website, McNorton serves as the team’s Manager of Partner Activation. Whatever the position was previously known as informally within the building, there’s a good chance that, from this point forward, it will be known as the “molly wop” job.

    Cool.
    I now know what molly wopping is.
    Knowing this will certainly assist me in keeping my pimp hand strong.

    Wow...I remember the term from the 60s.

    It was used in the genteel game of croquet.

    Bonus strokes for passing through wickets or hitting a stake are played from where the ball lies after the point is made. When a player hits another player's ball, it is called roqueting. For roqueting a player is awarded two bonus strokes. There are 4 options if this happens. The last option was called a molly whopping. You may place your own ball side by side with the struck ball. Then placing your foot on your own ball strike it so as to move the other ball without moving his own. You then have one stroke to execute as you choose.

    I think it left our vernacular because it's asinine.
