The NFL Draft Will Be Held on The Parkway

Press release:

The 82nd NFL Draft will be held April 27-29, 2017 along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia, incorporating famed city landmarks spanning from Philadelphia City Hall to the iconic steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, NFL Commissioner ROGER GOODELL and Philadelphia Mayor JIM KENNEY announced today.

“Philadelphia is a passionate football town and will serve as a tremendous backdrop for the Draft and provide a great atmosphere for our fans and incoming players,” said Goodell. “JEFFREY LURIE has been a strong advocate and supporter of the draft on behalf of the City of Philadelphia throughout the entire selection process. We look forward to working with the Philadelphia Eagles, the City of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau (PHLCVB) to create a week-long celebration of football for our fans.”

OK, my jokes about everything in Philly being held on The Parkway at the Art Museum and Rocky aside, this is pretty cool. I can’t think of a better justification for running up the steps than having just been drafted into the NFL. Watching massive linemen make the climb will be even better.

      1. The vast majority of Eagles fans are drunk losers. Don’t point fingers at the dirty 30. Look in the mirror.

      1. And YOU are real funny for not knowing the difference between “your” and “you’re”.

        Dumb Philly sports fan. Listening to (what passes for) sports radio in this town for so long has lowered your IQ.

  2. How is the draft in Philly exciting? They don’t have a 1 round pick. And even if they did, what is the excitement of watching a bunch of kids walk up a shake a guys hand? I feel like people get excited about football things like this because they think that’s what they have to do. I don’t know I guess I’m in the minority. But after the first two rounds, eagles picks only, I tune out

    1. Take gargano for instance, he was calling this yrs draft in Chicago “the mecca of football” and he just had to take him and his morning show gang with him.
      He’s on one end of the pendelum and I’m on the other. I love football don’t get me wrong, but the draft doesn’t do much for me.
      This article and what it’s about does sound cool tho

  3. Anyone think that Howie tries to overpay for a late-round 1st rounder just so they get to draft on day one?

  4. Jeremiah Trotter will be running a ‘clothing optional’ dunk tank for boys 10 and under on the parkway during the draft.

  5. the draft is for “football” fans, not specifically eagles fans…..they have it every year, and recently, have been taking it on the road as opposed to having it in NYC every year, so why not here? if you don’t want to go, don’t go…..last year, ESPN and the NFL network had round the clock live coverage of the draft for like three days, so there must be people out there who watch and find it interesting.

    1. It would have made a lot more sense to delay its appearance in Philly until 2018 when we actually have a 1st rounder. They didn’t finalize until well after we traded the pick. It would make for much better TV. That’s why it doesn’t make a lot of sense for Philly to have it next year.

  6. Good job way to go reporting all the facts that the real sites reported yesterday. Your parents must be so proud you douche.

  7. Dawwww Bo dats right! Us football guys love this stuff. Forget about the fact da birds don’t have a pick. What else would you rather do den watch a bunch of guys walk up some steps and hold a jersey up. You should be in da meat locker with me Baldy and Vai. We have nothing else going on in our lives neither Bo.

  8. Quite possible the saddest radio ever on 97.5 today. Hey we have nothing to talk about, so lets go back to Eagles memories. So many great ones. All those championships and all

  9. HAHAHAHAHA. Philly gets the draft and they don’t even have a first round pick! Fucking loser Pigeon fans will start drinking at 10am to watch a draft that they aren’t even involved in. I’m sure these fuck sticks will be puking on the parkway and starting fights with everyone.

    It’ll be even more fun when the Eagles go 5-11 this year and have to hand over a top 10 pick to the Browns.

    WE DEM BOYS!

    1. Calm down, Dave. I highly doubt you’ve even visited Texas. South Philly Cowboy fans are truly pathetic and sad. Your father failed you, and if he is/was a Cowboys fan, then your grandfather is a fucking prick. Grow up, buddy. You’re not 8 years old, anymore.

  10. I need a job. Does anyone know where I can find one? I’m not good on the air, I talk about everyone, I think I deserve better and I’m a nice guy.

  11. I agree with the last sentence about the massive lineman. Will have my binoculars ready. On another note I’m surprised there is no mentionon on this site of Utley loosing the bet with Corey seager and dying his hair black. I’m disappointed in Kyle.

    1. As all of you know I am not gay. But I do tend to check out the local hardcore scene, and I have great news for any of you planning on attending the draft. The Mr. Leather Con is going on that same week at the Palm Hotel near the Convention Center !

  12. Lets Draft A BLM Wannabe In The 7th Round And We Can All Warch The Pre Season Games To See If He Stands Up For The National Anthem Or Wears Derogatory Socks. Sounds Good To Me
