    I work in a casino in Atlantic city. I can get off saturday and work thusday. Our pay is based on tips and Saturday could be worth from a $100-$150 more. Should I take off and watch the draft

    I'm taking the day off on Saturday(like always) and I have 2 kids, but I work plenty of overtime so it's no biggie. I love to hunt but I don't take time off from work to do it. The draft is only 2 days a year. Go for it!

    My wife always gets mad at me and says "you never take days off for us to do something" and I say well I would if you were in this years draft.

    I took it off myself. Then again I don't have a family to feed and my girlfriend loves watching the draft every bit as much as I do.

    So win-win situation for me.

    I would go to work...and just record it. THe draft can be a very ....very long process especially when you have to continually mute the tv when Kiper talks. You will be kicking yourself that you didn't earn that extra cash and just check the draft on tape where you can fast forward to all the exciting moves that might happen in the draft.

    I guess it would depend on how badly you need the money. If taking the day off is gonna force you to eat oodles of noodles for a week, then I would go to work. Otherwise, I would stay home and watch the draft.

    I have a funny feeling every time it's the Boys time to draft. We will be trading down. Which is very frustrating. I am 30 yrs old and I have watched every draft since we picked Aikman, with the exception of 1. That was the year we passed on Moss so I was glad I missed that one. IMO I always get this feeling if I had been there to watch we would have selected Randy. Sorry guys. It will not happen again. I will take the day off.

    I spent last year's draft in Epcott Center. I had my cousin call me after every pick. Mike Williams was still on the board at #10. I thought for sure he was gonna be a Cowboys.

    Who knew Detroit would take ANOTHER WR with their first round pick.

    I then figured Shawn Merriman would definitely be our man. I was in the American display at Epcott ... the talking wax figures with Ben Franklin and Abe Lincoln ... when my cousin called me with the Cowboys pick. I think I said, "Oh ****!!!" too loudly in the auditorium. ha ha

    But it was funny.

    This year, I told the wife she can do what ever she wants on Saturday ... take the baby or leave the baby with me, but don't bother me. Or she can stay and watch the draft with me ...

    Anyway, she set up a BBQ with some friends and family for next Saturday. That's good ... as long as she does all the cooking and no one bothers me. ha ha

    I was busy last year and TB text'd me w/every pick until I was able to get online later that day.

    If you gotta work, then work. Make that money, tape it, and watch it later.

    I have a similar dilema. It is my son's last year in Cub Scouts, and I am his den leader. Guess what weekend our annual camping trip is scheduled for?

    So, I will be deep in the woods. My dilema is whether to Tivo it or to try keeping up with the picks through a PDA connected to the internet via my cell phone.

    The cell phone gets spotty service out there, but there are areas ...

    Not sure if it is better to know in real time how the draft unfolds, or wait until Sunday, and watch a sped-up Tivo'd version.

    Suggestions?

    Don't even think about missing the draft - EVER! (unless you are homeless and broke, of course ;-))
