I was making my plans on how to experience this year's draft, and I decided to find out approximately when the actual picks start being made by reviewing last year's draft thread. In addition to answering my initial question (it appears that the clock starts on the first pick at 4:30), it was fascinating and often hilarious reliving last year's draft through the eyes of StR (I missed the live thread last year). In a strange way, reviewing the roller coaster of anticipation, excitement, jubilation, horror, disbelief, skepticism, and various coping methods left me feeling even more excited for this year's draft but also less nervous. I've been telling myself that I'll be okay with whoever Geoff chooses, but I think this is the first time that I've actually felt it. I also plucked from this thread my new sig line, spoken by one great philosopher and retold by another.
