The NFL Draft

The NFL Draft is approaching, and we once again will be treated to the spectacle of 21-year-olds becoming instant millionaires.

But what is more disturbing than this is the unnecessary man-hugging that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell finds necessary.

And not just with the top pick – with every damn one of them, it seems.

At some point, Goodell decided that a congratulatory handshake was insufficient in welcoming them to the millionaires club. Every pick required something more personal, I suppose. It started with the man hug and eventually degenerated into this (see above).

Can we all please be men again and return to a firm handshake? Enough of the invasion of personal space.

Just stop it.
