10 Years Ago in Football and Beyond

This draft business is old hat to Brandon Weeden, seeing that's he's done this before. That's right, Weeden was drafted by the New York Yankees in the second round of the 2002 MLB Draft.

A further note, he was traded (along with Jeff Weaver) for Kevin Brown the following season.

That's quite a world of experience, considering most of his fellow draftees were in middle school in 2002 (though, Andrew Luck had just recently returned to the States after living abroad in Europe as his dad, Oliver Luck, was an executive for NFL Europe.)

Here's a look at what was happening in the world in 2002.
