NFL Draft and My Political Campaign
I’ve had to suspend my pre-campaign for the Senate while I await that special call from the Broncos. Readers of previous blogs back during the NFL Combine will recall that I am the perfect size for an NFL linebacker and that I have hinted very strongly that I am only interested in signing with the Broncos as the only team within commuting distance.
I started waiting on Friday. Someone told me that the NFL draft is over. That is obviously incorrect because I have not yet been notified that I was drafted. I am still waiting.
There must be some terrible mix-up. I assume they misplaced my contact information and are really embarrassed, so I have been somewhat pro-active. I left a few messages for John Elway, John Fox, and Pat Bowlen, the owner. That way they have my cell phone, office phone and email.
There is a risk that I will damage my negotiating position if I appear too eager, yet I want to get the ball rolling regarding my contract.
I know what is going on. They are probably calling my agent. He knows how to get a hold of me. Maybe. At least he has my number. I wonder why he has not returned my last fifty calls.
