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.
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.
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.
