We made it guys! The Draft is going to start TODAY!!! Not tomorrow, not next week, TODAY!!
Now I KNOW you don't have anything better to do than toss on your favorite jersey, park yourself in front of the cpu with ESPN and NFLN on in the background. The whole staff has made this weekend a priority to try and bring you guys the best draft day atmosphere you can get as a Broncos fan.
TSG is picking up his press pass at RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL as we speak,
Ted Bartlett is warming up the fingers and, more importantly, the wit,
HoosierTeacher is preparing himself, and all of us, for the rigors of the up and down hours that face us,
NYC is hosting Guru in, well, NYC, and prepping for the long haul this weekend,
Zappa is kneedeep in HTML code to keep the threads running smooth, and
Broncobear delayed some important salmon-sampling to be present and offer up a Bear's eye view of the Broncos' picks.
For my part, I've thrown on the #78 jersey, to bring the best luck I can to that #12 slot this year for the Broncos, and am hoping like heck for Character, Attitude and Impact to the be the hallmarks of our 2009 draft.
There is a lot to keep track of today, so stay tuned in and help eachother out. We'll be doing open threads all day and all weekend for every round, and I can't wait to see the kind of comment counts you guys manage to drum up. We have contests to break down, and raffles to rock, we have 32 teams all vying for the best talent in the draft (draft pick chart), there will be trades up and trades down (draft pick point value chart), and most importantly there will be tons of talented, enthusiastic young players ready to take the next step on the way to greatness (Broncos Big Board.)
Which ones will be Denver Broncos at the end of the day? Well, that is why we are all here, isn't it? And this is the perfect place to say just where HERE is: the best damn place anywhere to celebrate the Broncos this offseason, and it is because of YOU the terrific MHR community. Everyone is here today because you guys have made it worthwhile, and as far as I'm concerned, you all have already made Draftivus a huge success. It is Draftivus morning now, so let's just enjoy bringing this one home.
