Are you ready for primetime and the 2013 NFL draft?  Well are you?  You may think you are ready, but the draft is a marathon, not a sprint.  I compiled a checklist for myself and realized that this may be helpful for others.   Remember, when shopping, cooking, inviting and charging you have three days of fun to fill with good stuff.  Do not plan anything but draft viewing on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  If you have not already taken the time off, start coughing in front of your boss as soon as you are done reading this!  First round begins Thursday at 5 p.m, Chargers time, followed by the second and third rounds on Friday at 3:30 p.m.  Rounds 4-7 will be held Saturday, April 27 at 9:00 a.m.

NFL Network – Do not be looking for the draft anywhere else.  If you do not have it, call your cable company now!

Drinks – Make sure you have enough on hand for three to four hours of draft viewing over three days.  You do not want to be running out to BevMo in between rounds and miss something.  Also, make sure you get breakfast drinks for Saturday, mimosas or bloody mary’s are part of the experience.

Food – Think snackfest.  Stock up on hummus, pita, chips, veggies, cheeses, crackers, olives, fruits and other things that do not require cooking.  If you are making guacamole, make sure you get at least 20 avocados.  Only thing worse than running out of guacamole is when your team drafts Ryan Leaf!  If you want something hot, think crockpot.  Nacho cheese or chili?  Yes!

Extra Power – Make sure you have power cords for laptops, iPads and phones plugged in and ready for action.

Have fun and enjoy the draft.  #IBelieve

  • BlueBoltFan

    I don’t think it will be the end of the world no matter what happens. There’s not one way to get this right. And the best way is pure speculation unless you win the super bowl. Trade up, trade down, stay put, we’ll be okay. It’ll be interesting to see our new GM in action!

    • http://boltbeat.com/ ChargerGirl Cindi

      Definitely. First time in awhile I have been excited about our GM.
