The 2021 NFL Draft is live again this year in Cleveland, and Buccaneers fans will be in attendance as Roger Goodell announces the picks from the stage.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans, and NFL fans alike, rejoice! We are having the 2021 NFL Draft live again! With real people in the audience, NOT cardboard cutouts. Who’da thunk? Well, we all did. I mean, let’s get back to football, and the excitement and energy we fans bring, shall we? The Buccaneers are looking forward to trying to run it all back again, and for the first time in a long time, are in the 32nd spot, with a bevy of luxury options this year. Needs are out-shined by wants, and that’s a great position to be in.

Actual flesh and blood football fanatics will be in attendance live for the draft with a certain number a fans from all 32 teams. And Bucs fans will be there in force to represent the champs well. These super fans will be allowed to sit in that enviable prime heckling spot right in front of the same stage the ‘commish’ himself will be announcing the picks from.

Finally, after hearing nothing but crickets during last year’s draft as Roger Goodell announced the picks from his fortified basement bunker, we’re back to the energy and enthusiasm of having fans live, and in person, to experience all the pomp and circumstance when he announces the picks again this year during the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft!

If you want to participate in-person in this highly anticipated, time-honored, machination of the ‘Game Within The Game…The Booing of Roger Goodell,’ you’ll be required to prove you’re worthiness by showing you’ve gotten the Covid-19 vaccine. Then and only then, can you enter….. ‘The Octagon!’

Always good for a few chuckles as we wait patiently for a team’s pick, the best part for me is to see how Goodell reacts to all those ‘Boos’ and incessantly hilarious heckling! The more creative, the better! I have to give him credit for being a good sport about it, as he tries to hold back breaking character. It’s one of the most entertaining parts of the draft itself, beyond seeing who the Bucs’ pick is, of course.

Cleveland, my hat’s off to you for hosting the Draft this year as I’m sure you will make us all proud to be NFL fans. We look forward to getting back to watching this season from the seats in stadiums across the country, and not just on TV. For Bucs fans, that will mean packing RayJay as we attempt to run it back to the house on the road to LA!
