At the time of writing, we've got an extremely close match going on as Joe Buck is putting on a show, beating the higher-seeded "New England Cheatriots." I can totally see why, the Patriots are just a team that cheated a bunch and you don't have to think about it all the time. Joe Buck, on the other hand, is always there. He's always in climbin' in your windows ... yeah. I'm not finishing that reference, it's officially a dead horse that has suffered enough beating. But anyway, today we've got the new schedule of the NFL draft up against The Brady Six. Ugh. Ugh ugh ugh ugh. That's all.

So make the jump to read the descriptions of the participants for today, read full results from the left side of the bracket and of course, view the entire bracket. But first: remember, we are voting on what we believe to be the absolute worst thing of the two. If you're voting in a worst food contest, and you like pizza more than hamburgers, you would then vote for hamburgers in that matchup. Get it? Got it? Good. Make the jump.

(6) The New Schedule of the NFL Draft

There's so much hype and build-up and excitement. There's craziness and disarray and I love every second of it during the lead-up to the NFL Draft. It's most definitely one of my favorite times of year, when nothing else matters to me. I don't hold sleeping and eating in high regard right now, but during draft time, they couldn't possibly be farther from my mind. Now you get all this hype and excitement, and you get to the first round ... and then you get through the first round ... and ... then ... you wait. You sit there thinking about this first guy and you wait for rounds two and three, for no reason in particular. For more TV time in better TV slots, the draft moved to primetime and spread itself out across three days. It's more torturous than Giants baseball this season. Wait, Madison Bumgarner just gave up eight runs in the first inning Never mind then. But it's still pretty bad.

(11) The Brady Six

The way ESPN tells it, you'd think that Tom Brady is the only quarterback to ever have a great career while not being the first one off the board. There's all this talk about Brady's "Cinderella" story, and I just don't see it. Yeah, he overcame a lot of odds and became something special, but I don't quite think that fits in the spirit of "Cinderella," whose story is supposed to be one of at least partial exclusivity. So they had to make this documentary and talk about the quarterbacks selected before Brady. That's The Brady Six. The six guys taken before him. How stupid is that?
