MOVE THIS THREAD TO THE SPORTS FORUM!!!

 

 

A friend of mine got me a free ticket to go to the 2nd night of the Draft, rounds 2 & 3.  I follow it pretty closely every year, but I've never really thought of going.

 

anyone ever goto this before? I imagine it's like a bar on a Sunday but with more drunk and less informed morans trying to get on TV.

 

thankfully we've got a VIP viewing area and free beer and food. :beer:

I have a buddy who does a draft blog (Profootballtalk.com picks up his stories).  Actually interviews players (fluff piece stuff).  I actually did a couple interviews myself a few years ago.  One player made it to the league, undrafted FA.  Plays/ed for the Saints, after they won SB.  He but dialed me once too.  :lol:

 

My buddy goes pretty often.  Says he has met all the ESPN guys since he has a source to introduce.  Since he says guys recognize him and say hello and chat him up.  Easy to pick buddy out of a crowd.

 

Other than that, I heard it is a lot of sitting around for your couple of minutes of excitment.

 

I would go one day.

getting excited for this.  Standard round 1 coverage from the couch on Thursday and then the craziness that is round 2 & 3 LIVE.   :Phishfolk:

 

One of the guys I'm going with has a buddy who works for the NFL, we may get some additional access.  COOOOOL

 

I'm gonna bust out of here early, enjoy the afternoon in the city and roll in with a group of dudes I haven't seen in a while.

 

I'm pretty sure our group is represented in the following fan choices:

1 - Giants fan

1 - Seagulls fan

1 - Cowgirls fan

1 - Foreskins fan

1 - lolJets fan

 

At least I'm on home turf. :lol:

I think I remember that.  I had a bit of an obsession with the draft then.

well the Jets fucked that all up, almost as much as the bills.

 

the giants get the guy highest on their draft board.

 

Minn & St Louis had very good nights

 

the pats make the trade of the night. and have 4 more picks tonight as a result.

 

the first 10 picks tonight are going to be interesting. lots of room for more trades too.

 

I'm outta here in 20 minutes and off to the city. :beer:

How do you know the Jets didn't get the highest guys on their board?  People say that got good value.  Plus how do we know it was a good night?  I did not watch any tape on these guys.

They always gather picks.

Have fun!

The Jets got another quarterback yesterday, does that mean Sanchez gets another extension?
