    So I thought I might try to attend the draft live with my son at Radio City Music Hall this year. Unfortunately, the dates coincide with a golf tournament that I play in annually. I discovered that tickets to get into the draft are given out in a "first come first serve" format. You wait in a line the night before for a wristband that you then use to get a ticket for an assigned seat.

    Here is a link with last year's information. I hope it inspires one or some of you to go represent the Titans live:

    If I had more money and finals weren't the following week, I'd drive up there without a doubt.

    I'm sure you are concerned with travel expenses but just to clarify- The tickets to the event are free. They give them away in a structured format. I found that really interesting.

    I think being there live would be pretty boring. I like being able to switch from ESPN to NFLN and eat all the horrible food I can without being surrounded by morons.

    Yea, the travel expenses are what would get me. I drive a Civic, but it would still cost roughly $250 just in gas to drive there and back. I assume the best possible flight couldn't beat that price either.

    I'll do it one year just for the experience, but I do agree with Fry that it's better just to watch from home.

    Oh, and I'm planning on taking a road trip across the country at the end of the semester, so I need to have enough money for that.

    I've seen it a few times...course I live in NY so getting there is easy. Considering most people wait overnight many hours and in the morning, it is a lot of effort to be there for what is just the first round for the majority. Of course the die hards usually make it thru 3 rounds.

    I went before they made this more than a 2 day event so not sure how it goes now. So the downside is a lot of effort and how long you last is certainly a consideration.

    On the other hand, watching the crowd boo the heck out of McNabb, the Giants and Jets are VERY vocal, and getting to see your newest titan live is also pretty cool. I remember we drafted Kearse that year and I had a chance to ask Mort about it when they were on a break and he very much approved the pick! For one year, it's kind of cool. But if you have a long way to go and only interested in round 1...your satisfaction may vary.

    I wouldn't mind the morons- at least I don't think I would. I enjoy 2-3 days in manhattan periodically- thought it might be cool to do with my son.

    They do have some contests with airfare, hotel, and reserved (premiere) seating covered. That would be really cool. But this year dates coincide with a golf tourney I'm committed to play in. I want to do it next year with my son before he goes off to college. We've been going to games/watching games together since he was 5.

    no offense to anyone, but I'd rather get free tickets to the national paint drying championships.
    Especially in a draft like this one.

    I watch the draft every year. But always while doing something else. Not sure I can take it live. Probably just too fidgety. Plus, Jets fans can be annoying.

    It is boring, and it's because youre stuck looking at the same slow thing the whole time.

    There's a reason it's free to be there.
