This might have been covered another thread, but I haven't found one.
Who is going to the draft party at Reliant, and among those, who will be tailgating?

I'll be there with several friends when the gates open @ 10:00 to knock some of the rust of our tailgating skills.

I plan on going, but have to be at Minute Maid to pass out promotion items at 3:00. Which just sucks that I have to leave early. Hopefully our pick will be made by then.

I am driving down on Friday for the draft party. I am sooo excited about seeing everyone again. I also have to leave early for a wedding...

Is the Blue Crew planning to do a mini-tailgate?

Well, crap. I am trying to get out of the giveaway, but I don't think it will happen. At least the tailgating starts early. :glasshalffull:

I'll be there also.

I thought the draft use to start at noon central time. I remember they cut the time from 15 minutes to 10 minutes so it wouldn't finish soooo late. I guess that wiped out that therory.

They still do it. It's called "All Access" and it's invitation only for season ticket holders. They might be scaling it back, though, because last year it was on a Thursday night.

Lol, I bet you will. You should come and do it from Reliant. We would have a great time giving you advice on how to handle the offenders.

You should open two threads, one for the complainers and one for the optimists. Close everything else down, allow no more threads to be created that day.

Even if you only vaguely follow the NFL, I'm sure you were aware that during this past summer's draft, the Houston Texans, one of the most inept sports franchises out there, passed on future Hall of Famer and Heisman trophy winner Reggie Bush for an untested, freakish athlete: the project defensive end from NC State Mario Williams. This move was so close to making Mel Kiper's head explode, it's not even funny. Now, let me explain this in layman's terms.

At least we won't go through this again .

At least we won't go through this again .

Maybe not exactly, but there is always potential when your team's draft board isn't like Mel Kiper Hair's draft board. For character reasons or whatever.

And, we had a crisis nearly averted during the Amobi draft. Peterson was taken with the 7th pick. If he had been taken with the 8th pick, the one that the Texans switched with ATL to get Schaub, the Texans would have been crushed.

/Amobi over Willis isn't something that lights up talk radio like AD would have.

So, Texans have said 'no open flames.' I already know one of the super big tailgates plans on setting up.

So.....What's the word from Blue Crew and Texans Talk? The only difference being whether I bring meat to grill or not.

If so, what time?

That's what I was thinking...

I've never been to a draft party at reliant so I dunno how it works, but I would think that it'd be better if they opened the gates maybe an hour and a half before the draft started and then extended the event cuz it seems like there will be a lot of picks to be made when it's over...

Okay, i'm set for this. I plan to leave Austin around 10 a.m. so I can get there a little after 2 p.m. Whoever is the first ones there, tell the waitress/hostess that we are the "In The Bullseye Draft Party" so that anyone who comes knows where to how to find us. I'll be wearing a Texans t-shirt and a Longhorns cap (one advantage to being a guy is your clothes don't have to match)..
