I am very excited to announce that this year I will be hosting my own personal NFL Draft Party throughout NFL Draft weekend. The NFL Draft has become one of the greatest sporting events every year that does not involve a game being played. As the NFL Draft has grown every year, so has the interest in it.
For the last 8 years, I have been the host of “The Official Buccaneers Draft Day Party” and have dedicated a large amount of time to making sure that I am the most informed person in the Tampa Bay area when it comes to the NFL Draft. I would put my coverage up against anyone’s draft coverage because I know that unlike many others, I actually know what the hell I’m talking about.
Well, with my move to 1010 CBS Sports Radio, I have been given the opportunity to break away from my chains and host my own NFL Draft Party, which will be located at Pete and Shorty’s Restaurant in Pinellas Park. This brand new Pete and Shorty’s location is ideal for hosting an event like this with its wide open feel, large amounts of TVs, high quality food, and beer that will be flowing. If you have not been to the Pete and Shorty’s in Pinellas Park yet, you’ll be in for a surprise.
I want to thank my good friends at Joebucsfan.com and Bud Light for teaming up with me as well to put this fantastic party on. I have worked with Joebucsfan.com for years now, so I always enjoy any time I’m able to team up with them for a football-related event. With the work of them and myself, we plan on bringing in different celebrities throughout the evening as well.
Special this year will be “The Commissioner’s Table.” This table will be the prime seating of the event. I will personally be providing a few pitchers of beer and appetizers out of my own pocket. Any celebrities that make their way to our event will also stop by this table first before greeting the rest of the crowd. I will be giving away seats to “The Commissioner’s Table” on my radio show, on my twitter, and through my facebook page. Be sure to follow all of those outlets for your best chance at a seat.
Finally, if you’re looking to have the most fun, east great food, drink a lot of beer, interact with the broadcast, be as loud as you can, and root for any team that you want to, then the only place you should be on draft weekend should be Pete and Shorty’s in Pinellas Park. I will be hosting live from 6pm-11pm on Thursday, April 26th and then back on Saturday, April 28th from 10am-1pm.
I’ve been a major part of the Buccaneers draft parties for the last 8 years, and I saw many people in the audience not enjoying themselves as much as they should. If you’re looking to go crazy and not be afraid of interacting and yelling, then mark it down that you’ll be joining me for draft weekend at Pete and Shorty’s in Pinellas Park.
