Life is good

The weather is starting to make a turn for the better, golf courses all across the state are drying out, women everywhere are starting to tuck away those long johns and sweaters and knock the dust off those summer dresses - life is good.

The NFL draft concluded on Sunday, and the New England Patriots did the unthinkable - they traded up not once but twice! The Pats moved to grab defensive end Chandler Jones out of Syracuse and linebacker Dont'a Hightower. Great moves. A team coming off an appearance in the Super Bowl isn't going to have a ton of holes to fill, so instead of trading back and stock piling picks, like the Pats tend to do, they move up and fill the few holes they had on a defense, that, let's be honest, could use some improvements. That's not the end of the good news concerning the draft. How about those Maine Black Bears!
