Get a 12 pack or 18 pack, start drinking at 2, end at 10. Shouldn't be too bad as long as you're not a smaller guy. I'd go 18 though for sure on the second because of the length and poor TV coverage. Maybe just grab a 30 rack for the two days.

Hopefully I'll be drinking in Radio City, on the second day. I like to be on the top of my game there on Saturday. Maybe grab a six pack of some good beer late Saturday night, buy about three-four when I get in there, maybe cop a little buzz, we'll see. Since I'm 19, there are no guarantees there haha. I have a fake that has been my rabbit's foot for bars and distributors in Athens, but I haven't had the chance to use it out of Ohio. Pretty solid, it scans, is actually a real driver's license, looks like me enough and should do the trick. If not, it is what it is.

As for Saturday, probably wake up around 10 or so. Drive up in New Jersey, across from New York. Park the car in a garage there. Take the subway into the city, check into the hotel around maybe 1:00. Get out on the streets at 1:30, grab my last meal for something like 8-9 hours, then line up by 2:15-2:30. Doors at Radio City will probably open at 3. I'll go by my draft hat, get my stuff together, sit down and probably shoot the **** with my buddy and the guys around us. I'll be in my Palmer jersey and the Bengals draft hat. I'm a tall, skinny, white dude with longer hair, I was on TV a bit in 2007 and a good amount in 2008, so hopefully someone sees me and knows who it is. I usually prefer it over toward the ESPN side so that'd probably be the broadcast if the camera catches a glimpse of me.

My buddies and I all get together and have a small party every year. For every pick we miss, we must drink one full beer before the next pick. This really gets us into trouble.....

You must be a fan of the new shortened first day then haha

If I was to play a drinking game with the draft I think I'd go with drinking from when the pick is in to when Goodell gets his ass to the podium. Sometimes they really sit on those cards though. An alternative would be from Goodell walking to the podium to when he's done announcing the pick, but that may take some of the reaction out of the pick.

Yatta!

It's a 9pm start over here so I'll likely watch it with my buddy who is also into the draft with a few beers. There should be more draft parties in England :(

Hopefully this year I do somethin with my dad like go to a bar like panini's in Cleveland... I'm not sure though, this draft isn't going to be as EXCITING as previous drafts but its definitely still solid and as far as what the Browns need (LB... LB... LB... LB...) it's a pretty deep draft...

Should be fun!

I have it all planned out. I am going wake up at 7 am, and bring my grill:http://www.bargainshopper.ca/greenegg/images/big_green_egg_med.JPG

Its called the Big Green Egg. Its a smoker, and griller combined. Its amazing. Well I am going to lug that over to my bro's house where he is going to have some buddy's over. I am going to prepare the food all day long. At 3:45, I will complete my Coconut Shrimp, and serve that as an appetizer. After that, at pick 16, I am going to throw 2 BBQ chicken pizza's on the Big Green Egg (Yeah it does Pizza too. It makes it taste like brickoven pizza.) At the start of round 2, I will through my special "Monster" Burgers on the grill. It will be an awesome day of food, along with football.

I will do what I have always done since graduating college - which is creating my own little "war room" all of my draft magazines, printed out articles, some mock drafts, my own personal predictions as well as the trusty laptop to check out the fallout/analysis here and on ESPN - probably will even try to participate in some of the chats - post some questions comments as well...

Oh yeah, and ice cold beer :)

Would anyone else be interested in starting/joining me in a AIM Chat session for the draft?

I know I would enjoy chatting with folks as the draft is going on while not having to refresh the boards or anything like that.

I can certainly invite people and set it up if folks give me their AIM screen name.

Go to this draft party my father and I and his friend have every year since 2001. We have a huge feast of food and just talk football for the whole day.

Scott, are you going to have a live radio stream during the draft? It would be awesome!

This year, i'm hosting a party. a bunch of friends and their wives. all Brewer fans, so i'm gonna grill the Sausage Race. we hung out last year and made bets on picks when 2 or more people had differing opinions. it was fun. this year will be even better because the Packers have a top 10 pick.

03-11-2009, 04:30 PM
I'll spend the whole draft by myself and watch every pick. (Unfortunately I don't know anyone even remotely interested in the draft)
It's still one of the best days of the year for me, waking up on draft day for me is like waking up on Christmas morning for kids.

I'll probably buy a 30 pack and shoot to finish it by the end of the draft (spread it over two days). Also, I need to find a web stream of the draft as I dont have a TV.

Making the trek from Michigan to Mid town Manhattan for the draft with four buddies. The Spaceballs signs and costumes will hopefully be aplenty. My one friend wants to make a dark helmet costume and spray paint it honolulu blue for the lions. Probably will have a sign saying use the schwartz.

But after driving for an entire day, I'm definitely going to nee a cold one.

I don't know if I'll watch it with any friends or not this year. They usually kind of unintentionally annoy me because they don't know a whole lot about the draft. I wish my dad didn't work Saturdays because it would be real fun to watch it with him. I'll probably just watch it by myself with all kinds of food and see if I can get a decent connection to this site.
