Thread: Draft Day Party At Arena!!!

  1. #1

    Draft Day Party At Arena!!!

    Ok guys... here is the deal!

    The Draft Day Party will take place at the New Orleans Arena on Wednesday, June 26th at 5:30pm. Admission and parking are free!

    As you know, we will be giving out free Paul Silas Bobbleheads to the first 1,500 people to come through the doors. Hugo the Hornet will be there to interact with partygoers and perform his daring acrobatics and comical routines. There will also be dance performances, on-court contests, register-to-wins, live updates from the War Room, interviews with coaches through the process and of course... the draft will be shown live on the Arena Jumbotron.

    It will be a great time so I expect to see you guys out there!

    Thanks, Jessica. Will there be any players there or maybe Coach Silas?

    Here's a link to the entire announcement over on Hornets.com along with a quote from George Shinn.

    Hornets To Host Draft Party
    “We’re looking forward to having the fans celebrate our first draft in New Orleans with us,” said Hornets Owner George Shinn. “ They are the reason that the Hornets are here and we’re thrilled to have them come out to experience the excitement and the fun that the team is bringing to the city.”

    Per a post in a previous thread...

    Oh wait,

    Because jessicad comes online and make another post about the party, everybody's excited and posting. Hell, that damn coullion Harvey is cutting his trip short after telling me he wasn't coming. What gives? Am I not a reliable source? I thought things were better between us since that whole buying the team incident. Damn you! Damn you all!!! I think I'm going to cry.

    What time do the doors open? I see the "festivities begin at 5:30", but do the doors open before then?

    I'm looking forward....

    to being there to watch the draft. I am still numb and in disbelief that we ACTUALLY have an NBA team in New Orleans again. This is too good to be true!

    it doesn't matter to me. I was thinking of a place like Allegro's on Loyola. But i don't know if most of the guys will be able to make it. Tell you what...

    I'm going to email jessicad to see if they can reserve a spot for us. It's a long shot, but it's worth a try.

    That's good. Even if they just put a sign in the area where we will be so people know where to go once inside.

    Well to keep out the fakers, the sign should just say Obey Spongeridge on it and that should be enough to let the regulars know where to go (maybe a picture of Spongeys avatar )

    Sure thing. If someone can get me some pictures to post on the website, everyone that went will get a point (except for the person who takes pictures, that's +2!)

    Since I know you'll be there in spirit....
    +1!

    You never know when I'm going to be in the mood to throw a point out there
