Even the last player picked in the NFL Draft has a busy itinerary.
Tim Toone, aka Mr. Irrelevant XXXV, is in town for three days. The arrival party for Toone is at 5 p.m. today in the atrium of the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel & Spa.
Toone will receive gifts and mingle with fans. The event is free, so if you root for the Detroit Lions, which drafted Toone with the 255th pick, you have a reason to cheer before the actual NFL season.
An hour later, Toone is off to the All-Star Lowsman Banquet, where the wide receiver will catch grief for having blond dreadlocks. Toone will be toasted and roasted by former NFL greats, Ron Yary and Ron Mix, and coaches like John Robinson and UCLA's Norm Chow. Tickets are still available for the banquet because Toone is not a household name yet in the NFL.
On Thursday, Toone is heading to Disneyland to donate some hair to Dopey of the Seven Dwarfs. He'll also be a special guest at Toontown. In the evening, Toone will be part of a regatta and guest of the Balboa Bay Yacht Club.
