Throwback Thursday - The Los Angeles Rams Are On The Clock

Image
Written By: Ken Hulsey For NFL fans the annual draft of collegiant talent is something very much like Christmas. Though every draft has it's fair amount of suspense, no draft in recent history has had quite this much drama. Indeed this year's draft has featured it's own version of "the ultimate question". When the Los Angeles Rams traded for the first pick in this years draft it was more than obvious to almost everyone that they would be selecting a quarterback with the selection. For over a decade the Rams have had trouble securing a high level player at the position and the acquisition of this years top pick provides the first true opportunity to acquire the type of player the team has desperately needed.

And by "functional," I mean it moves up and down and makes "pew pew" noises. If you're like me, you have many questions. How did this get made? Who is the master craftsman behind this? And where can it be found, so I can jump inside and reenact my eight-year-old fantasies of mowing down wave after wave of annoying Ewoks because, let's be honest, the Battle of Endor was some bullshit and there's no way a handful of teddy bears with prehistoric technology could have defeated a squadron of fully armed stormtroopers, not to mention at least four AT-STs with laser cannons and concus
