CJ Draft Drinking Game

New, comments

If you want to spice up your draft watching, and aren't attending our live draft show on Thursday night, we have developed a fun drinking game centered around draft terminology and analyst tendencies. This game can actually be continued on throughout the entire draft, so get ready for a great weekend!

PLEASE NOTE: This game was developed around watching the broadcast on ESPN in year's past and the amount of requirements that call for drinks can be quite extensive, so feel free to abide by whichever rules you would like (easiest if copied and pasted onto a Word document and printed). And as always, we here at CJ always encourage our readers to drink responsibly and may not be held liable for any bad decisions you make after playing this game. Enjoy!
