As everyone fantasy draft days approach I thought it would be fun to read everyone's Draft Day experiences that have gone wrong. Experiences that have lost network only to draft Payten Hillis as your #1 running back, drafting the wrong players, having to attend a family reunion on draft day or the dreaded in-laws in town. These are a few things that have gone wrong in my personal life. And to answer your questions, I tapped into the family wi-if and sat in the corner while drafting my team.
We all have those life un-expected things that pop up on draft day. Do we all look at the calendar and act as draft day is magical? ABSOLUTLY! But life does call even on draft days. Life does happen even in the off days which we try to avoid but never the less ALWAYS happen.
Yes, we all know it is a pain to get all 8/10/12/20 guys together for a fantasy draft. So if something pops up on the day of your draft, one must take the lemons and make lemon-aid. You find the nearest wi-if spot, get your computer ready, only to find out its password protected and the firewalls do not allow your draft to load. Commence to table pounding. As time nears, sweat starts to pool, nerves are tense, and cheat sheets pile up. After all the mock drafts, research you have compiled, and scenarios you have thought of all boil down to this. DRAFT DAY!
Draft day is the single most important day of your next 5 months. It is more important than a day or work, it is more important then a birthday, and in some cases draft day more important than a child birth (some might say).
So I thought it would be fun to read everyone's draft day debacles on our beloved Daily Norseman site, not only to get a laugh from everyone, but also to make my dreaded Monday/work week move on faster.
Let's post a few stories below of what has happened on your draft day. Debacles, fun experiences, where your draft is, and how it all pans out. No I don't want your rosters, I want the funny stories that have happened to you on draft day. The beloved single day that consumes your NFL life.
