I was at Scores this evening taking in some pre-draft day entertainment when I saw two gentlemen who looked eerily similar to Ron Rivera and Marty Hurney having a couple of drinks and throwing dollar bills on the main stage. Although it was next to impossible to hear anything they were saying over Nine Inch Nails blaring in the background, I am positive I could read Marty’s lips mouthing “OK, Dareus number one.”
