    It says something — I’m not sure what — that when I hear the word ‘draft’ these days, I think about football. I don’t even watch football, let alone follow it more deeply, so my response to the word suggests some interesting changes in our social realities.

      I have the same reactions that you do concerning the word ‘draft’. It had nothing to do with football back in the day.
