With the 16th overall pick, the Tower News Taliban selects John Leahy.
Tobes: According to Yahoo’s Lowell City Council fantasy site, this Leahy guy is apparently an incumbent. News to me. I’ve never hear of him, and couldn’t pick him out of a police line-up (snitches get stitches). But when faced with the possibility of a Doyle or Mendonca serving as our anchor, I had to come up with some sort of alternative logic to make this pick work. I went with name association.
When I hear the name Leahy, I can only think of one man, Jim Lahey, the Supervisor of Sunnyvale Trailer Park. Lahey is renowned for being tough on drugs, tough on crime, and harbors a general disdain for kids throwing bottles. Hello? What could we use a little less of on Lowell? How about drugs, crime, and kids that throw bottles…or the shithawks.
At that, welcome aboard the Taliban, John Leahy…
Ned’s Take: Trailer Park Boys? Are you serious? Two bubble boys for Tobes’ last two picks and he’s all but assured dead last if either falls out of the top 9.
