The Houston Texas have been awarded the last pick in this month's NFL Draft, giving the organization the right to select the next Mr. Irrelevant with the 253rd overal selection.
Newport Beach is gearing up to celebrate Mr. Irrelevant, who has been getting showered with gifts for the past 35 years. The last player chosen in the draft is expected to come to town in June and have a weeklong party, known as Irrelevant Week, thrown in his honor for no apparent reason.
"Everything's bigger in Texas," said Paul Salata, the Irrelevant Week founder, in a press release. "And we'll need to make sure this year's Irrelevant Week is bigger than ever. We'll have the hat and the cattle."
Organizers of Irrelevant Week said Mr. Irrelevant will visit Disneyland, go sailing and tour local beaches and hot spots, and also be rewarded with the Lowsman Trophy, which is the complete opposite of the Heisman Trophy.
