I go with the traditional pizza rolls.

I've decieded I do not like the new draft schedule, but it does let me go to my oldest's game in the morning and not miss anything; so it worked out great this year.

I've been watching what I eat lately and it's seems like it's been a year since I've had pizza and wings. Well, I fully intend on choking down some wings come Saturday. IMO, the late start is sortof beneficial. I can prepare my grub and stuff my face while watching the talking heads run around like chickens with their heads cut off rather than taking a chance on missing something in the draft.

I'll be fat and sassy come draft time. :whip:

17 picks at a 10 minute max per, is ten minutes short of 3 hours. I will have my crackberry working right around 4:30.

I don't know who rolled the draft back to 2pm but football fans want a noon kickoff....who doesn't know this?

As usual, I have to be in about three different places at the same time on Sat. Dance competition for the granddaughters, baseball for the grandboys, and the Texans draft, all at the same time. Maybe I'll just decide to sleep in!!:texflag: Wake up Sunday morning and find my grandkids have all had successful competitions, and the Texans have had another GREAT draft! I'm gettin to old and tired for all this!! Sleep sounds like the thing to do!!!:shetexan:

More packageable pre-draft programming equals more advertising dollars and/or maybe it was requested by the teams to have extra time before the draft since they have less time to make their picks.

I have not seen or looked for the rationale, but those would be my first guesses.

I think I'll roll with the NFL network coverage this year for a change. But I have noticed Casserly playing an ever larger role on that network the last couple of weeks. If he is on too much, I may have have to go back to Mel bighair.

I'm throwing my diet out the window too. It's all about pizza and junk food for me this weekend.

I love eggrolls too. Although, I don't think I've had any homeade before. My local grocery store carries a brand that I've taken a liking to.

Well, at least we'll get about 7-8 hours of more draft speculation and mocks from the asshats.:)

I will be downing a boatload of wings (might be a beer or three with them) that I will pickup from BW3 with my sons best friend and we will have my son on speaker phone from Ankorage Alaska. Should be an interesting situation as my two grand daughters are at the stage were they want to be with dad a lot. He will have his hands full I expect.

Hey Vinny. You ever try lumpia? Pretty close to an egg roll. I buy homemade ones here and they are sure good. We had about 200 at last years draft party. Good eating.

Or you could always have an 'Indian leg wrestling' competition. Just make sure there aren't any breakables around. It used to get a little violent around our house. I've got 3 older brothers which all played offensive or defensive line. Needless to say, I used to get thrown around alot. :cool:

I'll be watching it on NFLN too. I'm willing to give them a try this year as I can only imagine that ESPN will have Kiper & McShay squabbling back and forth. If Matt Ryan does fall past Baltimore at pick 8 I might switch over to ESPN to see Kiper's reaction as he said he'll retire if Ryan falls past the Ravens.

Yeah, breakables, dogs and small spaces equal no wrestling of any kind. If not Madden then Call of Duty 4 for sure.

That's the schedule - at this time. And that's the only pick we are "scheduled" to make tomorrow since they are only having 2 rounds on Saturday this year and the Texans don't have a 2nd round pick - at this time.
But if the Texans get into a trade which involves a pick or picks in the first 2 rounds, the tomorrows schedule at this time will change. Just a little caveat on the Texans schedule for tomorrow.

Lots of food, fun, and drinks (homemade Long Island Iced teas are NOT on the menu this year...for various reasons).

Yeah, but the loss of the third round on day one of the draft sucks. Last year's first round was rough though so the ten minutes between picks will be good.

At first I was disappointed at the late start, but remembered the mess I made with chili dogs two years ago, when some unknown (to me) named Demeco Ryans was drafted ahead of LT of the future Eric Winston. And then the bigger insult was Charles Spencer going with the first pick in third round. Lord, I'm trying to stop cussin and Kubiac was not helping. Two valuable lessons learned. 1. Food like chili dogs (or other flying objects)should not be in my hands on draft day and 2) Kubes has everything under control. I will have my meal consumed prior to 2nd pick in first round. I still like chili dogs and sorta like that unknown Demeco guy. How has he turned out anyway? j/k

I wouuld say worst case scenario, the will have picked 30 minutes before you get off, and best case 30 minutes after but I bet they pick between 430 and 530.

I watched it on NFLN last year so I didn't have to watch Kiper on ESPN. Turns out I made a mistake when I switched over during a commercial break only to see Keyshawn Johnson arguing with Kiper and it was pretty obvious that he was irritating the hell out of Kiper.

Kinda off-topic, but....Dude, the wife and I get back to the house from our daily 40 min walk and see the kids sitting out front of the house. It turns out a copper fitting to our guest bathtub had bursted. Thank God my son was smart enough to kill the water before it really did some damage.

Long story short, I had to cut out about a 4' X 4' section of sheetrock due to saturation, then repair the fitting. Me, knowing there's the NFL draft beginning Saturday, tells the wife "we're going to have to let this dry out for a few days before I can put new sheetrock on". She then gives me sort of a sideways glare and says......."you're right". I about passed out, because we dudes are never right. Right?

Anywho, I'll probably get started on the repairs Sunday evening. :cool:

LMAO! I've gotten the ole striped lawn thing myself. I used a plastic flower pot with the drain holes at the bottom to disperse the fertilizer around the yard. She didn't like it, so I had to go buy a fertilizer'er. When it did the same thing......I was still blamed for it.:thinking:

I have been trying to get the Texans to trade down in the first round the last couple of years and get an O-lineman, but they never read the boards and listen to me. So it is safe to say we are not getting an O-lineman in the first round this year either because I really wouldn't mind it if they did. So it is also a safe bet that if that kid Godfrey (I think), the DB from my old highschool is around in the 3rd, he won't be picked by us either.

So anyway I think we won't get an O-lineman in the 1st or a DB in the 3rd because that is what I want and they never listen to me.

However I could live with a DB in the 1st and an O-lineman in the 3rd.

but maybe they will replace Weaver and give us bookend DEs,

Or maybe one of the top RBs will drop to us and we won't have to rely on two broke down RBs as our starters.

I am soooooo confused. I almost feel like a Titans fan.

brisket, ribs, chicken, fajitas, sausage, homemade flour tortillas

On Saturday, since I have to work, we're gonna make our famous queso dip with rotel and jimmy dean sausage! Yes we can watch the draft at work! :texflag:

Here's to another good draft, ladies and gents! :texflag:

I told my wife MONTHS ago that these next two days are sacrosanct and untouchable. She tried to plan something. I told her no. She's going out with her friends and I get to watch the draft.

She did find us good tickets for the Cowboy preseason game. :fans:

But I also told her that I was fine with us going on vacation as long as we didn't miss any regular season games. She scheduled our trip to Italy... and I'm going to miss opening day.

:gun:

In the words of GnR, I used to love her but I had to kill her.

So does anyone know if there's a site that will let me watch the draft from the computer?

probably a lil off topic but, we're wanting to come early for the tailgating but our grill is kinda old to bring in the back of the pick up. Anyone got a grill we can toss some stuff on or anyone having a party type deal we can just give cash to to get in?

My home internet connection has not been set up after moving house during the weak, the draft is not on TV and I'm not working so can't watch it from work.

My favourite day of the sporting year and I am out of the loop.

Hating this.

That sucks Kiwi. Do you have a portable with WiFi built in or an antenna? If so, go to a place with free WiFi. If not, I'm not sure if in NZ the libraries have internet, but that's worth a try. Cyber cafe's could work, but they aren't free. Just some thoughts.

We do have WIFI but there aren't so many places that have it unsecured here.

Plus its Sunday so I have church, with the later start that puts the start time right when my kids are just waking up, my house is chaos and it is my only day off out of 12 and the wife needs some TLC.

I think I will have to call Roger Goodall and get him to reschedule.

Is anyone but me getting excited? Its the first step of the season. I wonder if we'll trade down, trade someone for more picks, Just sooooo many things that can happen. WOOO HOOO

I'll choose this for my FIRST post -- stuck in LA all I heard a few years ago was Bush this and Bush that - so every year I dread tomorrow a little cause it always gets brought back up.

Well, not this year!

I am totally cranked up for this - and I think the Texans are in good position to do a few thigns in the first round - including finally get some pieces to the Oline.

Looking forward to some good picks tomorrow!
