The draft always comes with some oddities and this weekend was no exception.
While “Tim’s Two Cents” normally comes out on Fridays, I wanted to wait until Sunday this week so I could talk about the NFL Draft. I think it paid off, because it was as weird as ever this year. I’m not going to take the time to do a team-by-team breakdown, draft grades or things of that nature. Instead, I’m just going to go over some of the things that particularly stuck out to me from the three days of the draft.

All three schools had several top five finishers

After opening the week with a loss to Rolla, the Lakers went 1-3 in their wood bat tournament
The Camdenton baseball team has been plagued by inconsistency this season. When their bats wake up they are all runs, and when the pitching and defense are sharp the bats die down.
The St. Louis Blues never seem to capitalize on good regular season play.
Its playoff hockey time and the St. Louis Blue have again found themselves in the playoffs. For the fifth year in a row, the Blues finished the regular season in the top two in the Central Division and for the fifth year in a row they seem to be blowing it.
All four schools took part in golf tournaments last week

The Tigers have gotten off to a hot start on the diamond
The Versailles baseball team had a busy week in Osage last week, heading down for a conference game on April 5 before playing in the Osage Wood Bat tournament last weekend. The Tigers entered the week with a spotless 4-0 record and kept improving throughout the week.
The game was ended after five innings because of the mercy rule

Can the world care about a PGA Tour without Tiger?
