Raptors Raptors Draft Party

RF's very own Raptorman was awesome enough to give me tickets to the Raptors Draft Party at Real Sports the other day.

So, I brought SJ along for some photo ops and draft pick talk with the Raptor-folks. I wrote a blog post with some of the pics we took, and thought a few of you might get a kick out of these photos.

Check 'em out here: http://bit.ly/ijGbxq

Great pics.

I would love to meet Jack. Seems like a great guy. Yeah, Ed just seems like a quiet guy that doesn't like too much attention.

Jack was so awesome. Not only did he come down to take more pics with me, but he shot the shit with SJ for awhile about players they both knew from years ago.

As for Ed, meh. I didn't care much about meeting him, he just happened to pass by. I was on the hunt for NinjaRaptor. And I'll tell you this much - he is not shy.

Yep. The others were blurry, or SJ was making a weird face. What's wrong with that one??

HAHAHA...awesome...I did not want these tix go to waste and I see they certainly didnt!

Glad you two had a good time. There were a lot of players there! At the last one in the ACC when they drafted Bargs, there might have been 3 players and they were untouchable. Party on Garth!

Thanks for the Tickets. We certainly didn't waste them. What was supposed to be an hour of being a fan, turned into 4 hours of getting smashed with all those guys.

for all you guys that love Jack, you need to know that he actually did his famous "HELLLO" when he met Barracuda. (to say she's hot is a bit unfair, she's a total smoke show, and the reason we were in the VIP, JJ was all over her, I wouldnt be surprised if she dates the guy hahaha)

Sherm and David Amber were trying to work still, but it was funny because the staff kept bringing beer and they couldnt say no..... Jack and I had a great talk about Niagara hoops in the 90's, he coached a couple of guys I used to ball with when I was young. We had some serious laughs too....

Devlin is the shit. Period. We talked about how hard it is to call games for toronto when they suck, and how awesome he felt to be able to do some playoff games. He told me he's on a multi year here in toronto and his family is all here and he LOVES toronto. Also had some hilarious chat about older players (Kevin MacHale) and how they used to train in the off season. Light run, get up some shots, a few beers and some fishing.

Ed Davis is a tool.

All in all a good time. Tengiz was ok. Devlin was cooler though and I secretly wished he and Jack had come with us to the Dakota instead of Tenny. But he was ok.

Ed Davis to me seems like he couldn't care less about being a raptor. Or is that just his shyness?

It's honestly nothing to worry about. He mentioned before in an interview people think he's always unhappy when really it's just his personality. He's a chill guy and who knows, long-term maybe this is a good thing.

So there were drinks to be had after the draft party?

Gotta admit.... I'm kinda hurt right now.

Sucks to hear that Ed Davis was such a knob. Sure hope that he's not just biding his time here until he bolts. Great to hear that Jack and Devlin are such good dudes in "real life".
