I requested off this year for Friday (I work 8a-5p) just so I can spend the whole day reading reactions. I have softball the night of the draft, then I'm probably going to the a bootcamp gym session I signed up for from 8-9. Should be home in plenty of time for our pick though. I'm trying to detach myself a little bit from it.

I always have NFL network running, with my desktop right next to my TV streaming ESPN coverage. Then I have my laptop on my lap with an abundance of snacks surrounding me. I go back down to my Dad's house in South Florida so nobody sees me during this period as I look completely ridiculous surrounded by all the technology and snack foods. I make sure I'm the only one in the room, because I get irritable when people talk to me during the draft. I also make sure to get off on Thurs and Fri and also skip class on those days.

It's a weird time for me. Laughing . I basically just lock myself in solitude except FF for 3 days. I swear I'm not always a weirdo like this... Laughing. These are usually my 3 favorite days of the year. Smile

Going to put NFL network on the television in the garage and be semi productive. There are always projects that need to be worked on.

Funny... it's very similar to what I'm going to do this weekend with the Masters!

Not as devoted as all the draftniks on here, save my days off for getting outdoors.

Might do Vegas this year since I have friends going and it's an easy drive. If not I'll probably try to find a Packers bar around LA.

The chili part is a secret family thing, but the rest is usually homemade seasoned curly fries, melted velveeta, and plain chopped up bacon. I buy a couple sacks of potatos, 3 packs of bacon, 2 blocks of velveeta, and 3-4 lbs of ground beef for the chili. We have a bottle of ranch on standby for me and another of my friends. Cook the chili the night before and crock pot it for the day, cut, season, and deep fry the spuds, chop and cook (If you fry, you'll want to chop second) the bacon, fondu the velveeta, and layer fries, chili, cheese, bacon. If you're using bagged fries, canned chili, and bagged cheese, you'll want to bake fries first, warm chili, layer in big pan (with cheese mingled in fries on bottom), and warm in oven on low.

The other guys sometimes bring stuff for wings or cheese steaks. We hold the approach, if you want it, bring the ingredients and make it for everybody. Kitchen can get real cluttered

Going to Madison to visit a good friend and talk football for a few days. Last year we went to Quaker Steak and Lube (a restaurant for those who don't know the chain). This year I'm sure we'll find a place to go also. Maybe back there again. We'll see.

Just some place that has multiple stations that cover the draft and will play the audio. (Not that you really need the TV last year with Schefty dropping the picks via twitter).

I'm having a few guys over, I'm cooking, they're bringing the booze. I'm making a loaded potato salad, smoking a brisket, and making my own parmesan garlic buffalo sauce and breading and frying chicken strips. I might also do my battered, deep fried broccoli as well, it depends on how busy I am in the kitchen getting everything together. Yes, I have my own 2 basket deepfryer.

Dang, I only have a one basket. Deep fried battered veggies are great, Broccoli, Carrots, and Zuchini are my personal favorites. You sir do it up right.

Yeah, that sounds good as hell. Might be about the most unhealthy thing on earth though..... Laughing

Would be better with the "secret family chili" recipe though....... Crying or Very sad

LOL a heart attack in each bite. Can't help you on the recipe. Dad's from down south and it took me 21 years to pry that out of him. He told me I can't give it out til he's gone and can't be ashamed of me
