Also, the Sun Belt is rebranding! How the world found out, and why they've been so silent about it. Finally, the Draft is going Digital! How the NFL is holding its big event... without the war room!

Yeah, it's a pastiche of Seinfeld, which is itself a pastiche of sitcoms. A pastiche's pastiche. Capeesh? Look, there's no sports going on, so we had to figure something out. Thankfully, the Draft is still happening. But what about Pro Days? We found the answer. Also, we're doing a bracket, and we need your help with it!

The dawn of the XFL is upon us! Another offseason, another non-NFL pro league. But, what makes this one different? A lot, apparently. Also, we're getting you caught up on Sun Belt basketball teams. Who's surprising, who's falling short of the preseason goal, and who's EXACTLY who we thought they were? All this and then some!
