Beers, Pizza, explaining to my girlfriend how the whole thing works while managing my buzz so that I don't go to work on Friday completely wrecked.

Almost perfect.

True story, today: To old (older than I, at least) and I were on the elevator in the condo complex that includes my office. Somehow, I think one of them introduced it, the subject of our conversation became the draft and the Browns.

I told them that I had read headlines that said that we could not screw this one up.

They both vehemently said: "Oh yes we can...we are the Browns."

Interesting insight into a presumably small segment of our fan base.

I used to do elaborate stuff like smoked bbq ribs.

This year, I am going to start with a martini and then drink a lot of beer unless they do something stupid early on, in which case I will switch back to martinis.

If we announce Garrett #1...



If we announce Trubisky #1...



Of course, I am kidding about the heroin. I'll still drink that beer because it's too expensive not to, but it will be for a different - more malevolent - purpose.

I am meeting some friends at a bar.
The last time I met friends at this particular bar was the draft we took Richardson and Weeden. Most of the bar was upset we took Richardson. The place erupted with several people slamming the crap out of their tables and leaving in disgust when we took Weeden.

Going to Quaker Steak & Lube for Arizona Ranch/Buckeye BBQ Wings, bringing 7-10 various fandoms with me. Locked in a table for the whole she-bang. Camping on Friday, bright and early.

I'll have 5 people or so over. Everyone brings some form of comfort food - wings, pizza, chicken dip, etc......

We all have 32 $1 bills.

Every pick we throw a dollar and a prediction into the hat. Whoever gets the pick right wins the money (chopped if multiple people get it right).

If nobody gets it right, everyone throws in a buck and we go for the next pick.

It gets really fun when nobody gets a pick correct in 5-6 attempts and theres 30+ in the hat.

Wouldn't the beer called "the end of the world" be the perfect drink if we took Trubisky?

Not to be toooooo superstitious, but maybe another bar might be a good idea?

Tomorrow? As much as I need to work, I'm trying to rebel it and not work tomorrow and Friday. I mean contractors need to understand.

Tomorrow going to a buddy's house. Sausage with tomato sauce and whatever. Beer is the main ingredient. He's my main man when it comes to the draft. I can count on him to be as nerdy as I am and keep up with me as far as prospects.

Friday is the main party. A few more people will be there. Mainly those guys that think they know what they're talking about. But those guys that you can name a 7th round prospect you like in the 3rd that they agree with. Yeah he doesn't have wobbly knees, he's in. Yeah it's mainly fine entertainment to make myself feel superior. But we all have jerseys! Yeah they remind me of the draft forum. But they friends in real life. One is a crack shot. Can shoot anything from 500 yards plus. Yeah I've said too much.

Main thing is I don't know what we'll be feasting on Friday. Buddies wife is a great cook so something awesome. And beer.

Saturday don't know.

My friend, girlfriend and I are making wings and pizzas, cracking beer and wine, and sitting back with baited breath to see if the Browns do the right thing or screw it up.

I'm done with work at 3:00 (hey, one of the perks of teaching school, but I'm always there by 6 am).

Daughter has auxiliary team tryouts for the flag corps tomorrow evening. (A formality, this'll be her 3rd year.) They are done at 8:30, but one of her friends is dropping her off afterwards.

I'll watch tonight's "Designated Survivor" episode on the DVR.

I'll be sitting at my desk in our family room, with a glass of Crystal Light grape drink, and hope that no one bugs me while the draft is on. I don't even know if I have anything "snack related" in the cupboard or fridge. (Does cottage cheese count?)

(Probably do some laundry while it is going as well.)

Yep, that's me. Mr. Excitement.

Gonna meet some friends at an establishment in Parma for just the Browns picks. Tomorrow is a work day, so I will not heavily indulge. Maybe one or two to take the edge off.
