Is anyone else excited for the Draft tonight ?  I confess I’m a big football nerd that loves the whole process, with one phone call a young man’s life can totally change. Sadly, I’m afraid my team ( NY Giants ) will screw it up again, however, I’ll still be there watching. Anyone else ?? 🏈🏈

Not excited but it will be my first time watching the NFL draft.  I am looking forward to watching.

 

I am a faithful viewer of the NBA draft which is pretty exciting.

I’m excited because I live in Arizona and since we have the first pick I want to see who the Cardinals pick. Hope it’s Kyler Murry. We need all the help we can get. Hopefully the Cards don’t blow it.

Not the football fan I once was, so I'm not much interested.  Don't recall them ever hyping up a draft program so much as to pre-empt regular programming.  Maybe I've just missed it in the past.

@Meowingkitty , I’m curious, how do the fans there feel about Josh Rosen ?

@indoor kitty:  I'm not a big football fan, but my husband is.  We live about 30 minutes South of Nashville, so the NFL buzz is totally here.

 

I think I may watch the draft with my husband.  Boy, he'll be shocked!!!!

No 1st round pick for my Cowboys, but there are 30 former TX high school players in the draft, so I'm interested to see what their future is.  I'll be switching back and forth between the Stars hockey game and the draft.

 

On Friday going to the Star facility to share the draft experience with my fellow crazy Cowboy fans.  Smiley Happy   Hate waiting so long for our first pick, but hopefully it's a good one.

 

Happy Draft Day everyone!!

I use to follow the sports drafts after living in a home out numbered by men Smiley LOL but now I don't even watch. I just look at the news reports the next day to see who was drafted and by whom. There were occasions when I personally knew individuals eligible and then I would watch.

I don’t know how fans feel about him but I know the frustration level with him is there. I’m sure we can do better. It wouldn’t break my heart if he was traded.

I watch the draft every year. It was far more entertaining in the early days when the "experts" just knew who a team would draft only to be wrong 90% of the time.

Fly!!! Eagles!!! Fly!!!
