What are your plans for watching the draft?

Recommended Posts

I know some people are heading to Nashville...

 

I’m headed to a big draft party for Day 2 Friday night but Day 1 on Thursday is going to be at home, like a game day food-wise. And i need to watch round 1 without having to talk to people.

Same, home, yelling at the TV, and possibly the wife. 😬

I’m in Naples, FL seeing my dad. I’ll be watching it with him. Round one at his place and rounds 2 & 3 at a local bar.

I’m thinking that I am going to host for a bunch of the Bills Backers here. There may be 10 or so over, going to smoke some chicken wings. I have a good setup for that.

Going to my local bar.  There’s a private room for the bar owner and his friends.  They play poker and watch the LV knights games there. I know a bartender there and he reserved it for us.  3 TVs in there so we can watch multiple stations and the nba playoffs.

 

i had open heart surgery 5 weeks ago and this is my first night out with the boys.  Really been looking forward to it.

Have tickets for Endgame at 10:20. Hoping the Bills are done with their possibly multiple picks by then.

I don’t want to make light of your recent surgery, but I sure hope the Bills take it easy on you

Does anyone know any details on the draft coverage?  I see ABC is broadcasting the draft along with ESPN.  Will ABC be using the ESPN broadcast crew or having their own.  Watching some of the NBA playoffs today, seen ads for the ABC coverage, and hearing them touting how Bobby Bones will be present among other non football folks.  Nothing says NFL football like Bobby Bones!!

 

For me it's much easier for me to watch ABC rather than ESPN as don't have cable /Dish.  Have a TIVO hooked up to antenna for watching networks, plus Sling TV  So easier for me to record via TIVO if it's going to be identical broadcast, but would prefer having actual football coverage as opposed to the latest updates on the county music scene in Nashville.

 

 

Was also thinking a little about how the draft process works.  Each team has their draft room back at the team headquarters, they have a phone connection to a table at the draft site with a couple of Bills staff members there, sometimes the trainer.  He then fields the calls from headquarters, writes the name on a card and turns it into some runner who brings the card up to Roger to announce the selection.  If there's a trade, the cards a different color.

 

In today's electronic, wi-fi, data age, they're basically using the same process as was used the first time the draft was televised.  Kind of wondering is this really the process or is there something going on behind the curtain that actually runs the draft and what I described above is just for show on TV.

 

And will they actually paint a room green for the top picks to wait in??

Other than my pops having his first heart attack at 35 then 49, multiple strokes and a heart transplant......we all know what led to my surgery at the age of 44.  Our beloved Bills.  

 

Edit:  I’m confident that the only picks we could make that would put me back in the hospital is Rashan Gary and *gulp* Jonah Williams.

I’ll be missing it in favor of an Antiques Roadshow marathon. Gonna be some great stuff on late 17th century colonial needlepoint works. Absolutely captivating.

Home, telling myself to trust the process while slowly getting pissed off that I didn’t see Avengers.

I'll catch up before the end of the 1st round after viewing Avenger's Endgame.  I have a 6pm showing and the draft is at 7.

Thanks my friend.  I made an appointment with a cardiologist out of the blue strictly because of heart disease in my family.  No pain or anything.  After a couple tests, they saw that my left artery was 95% clogged and 2 others 80%!  Once they opened my up, they saw 2 more that needed a graft, so I had a Quintuple bypass.  Crazy.  5 weeks later, I feel really good.  On the treadmill everyday getting stronger.  Missing work really sucks, but I’ll take being alive 👍🏻

For real.  I was going to make a thread and ask for prayers while everything was going down, but didn’t want a pity party. Maybe I do now? Lol.
