Next to a Talk of the Town by Reeves Wiedeman about this year’s NFL Draft, the New Yorker hid this gorgeous, breathtaking, emotionally moving illustration of Mel Kiper, Jr., draft-obsessive and helmet-hair extraordinaire.
I think it’s my new favorite thing. I might wallpaper my room with it. It belongs in the Smithsonian AND the Met.
Here’s a haiku, written from the perspective of Mel Kiper:
Hair like a mountain
Watching teenage kids play sports
Suck my dick, McShay
