Meg Bulger is NOT Available

No matter how badly your favorite NFL team drafts this weekend, they can't top this. Meg Bulger was drafted in round 3 of the WNBA draft by Sacramento. She's the sister of Marc Bulger, and a scoring machine at West Virginia University (19.8 this year until she got injured). I was actually surprised she wasn't drafted a tad higher.

One small problem, though: she wasn't eligible for the draft! She never declared, never worked out for anyone, anything. She's going back to WVU this year. A complete reach by Sacramento, and the pick was voided. What kind of crazy GM drafts a player who isn't even eligible for the draft? I mean, how stupid is that? Sure, it was only the 3rd round of the 3-round draft. But it was an incredible waste of a pick.

Oh. Credit to for the picture. On second thought, nice try, Sacramento GM. I'm sure calling pretty girls and apologizing for drafting them on accident is a much better way to get dates then sending gmail invites to them as gifts. Um, not that I would know anything about that. Now if you'll excuse me, I "drafted" Candace Parker and Heather Zurich in my fantasy baseball league by accident. Ooops.


  1. You seemed to have super sized Meg Doran with Meg Bulger. Very nicely done, I like where your head is at. I fully expect an interview from you with Sue Bird where you ask her for her you can give it to me.

  3. Ha! Yes, of course. Sue is a national treasure, and it would be unpatriotic of me to keep her to myself. I concur.

  4. *sigh* we're still trying to figure out how that happened, although the compensation makes it seem like a league error and not a team error. It's really, really weird.
