You smell that? Do you smell that? Draft day, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that. I love the smell of a good lateral movement and forty-time in the morning. You know, one time we had a kid named Lawrence Taylor, for twelve years. He led us to two Super Bowl championships. When it was all over I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' dink body. The smell, you know, that prospect smell, the whole draft. Smells like … victory.
