Happy Friday Spursland! Well, it is Crystal Palace weekend, folks (do people outside the United States say folks?), and I assume this will be another game that will have us walking on eggshells.
Yes, Palace sucks. Yes, we are apparently kind of okay at this sport, but this is Spurs we are talking about here. We don't know Tim Sherwood isn't about to bring on some up-and-coming 13-year-old at the half for some seasoning. ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN, DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND?

Click on your team's picks in the table to get redirected to your teams specific breakdown of that player. For example I click on DC United's projected first round pick, a forward out of the University of Maryland, and it makes things move in my pants. It gave me hours and hours of day dreams about United scoring and Shane crying in a way that caused him severe dehydration and perhaps some water damage to his Pretty Little Liars DVD's.
