“Before you start digging your heels in for the 2014 NFL Draft, join BWB for lunch, networking and some Wild Turkey Spiced Bourbon.
No panels this year! Come kick back, shoot the breeze and hear some insightful speakers.

(NYDN) A Super Bowl win always provides an emotional lift to the winning fans.
But thanks to the recent legalization of marijuana, many Seattle Seahawks fans in Washington state experienced a physical lift as well as they watched while high during the game.
Alcohol and junk food consumption are always at peak levels on Super Bowl Sunday, but fans watching the Stoner Bowl — which featured the only NFL teams from the two states that legalized marijuana — had an extra vice to partake in if they so desired.

I’ve mentioned often how much of a big sports fan I am. But I can’t imagine putting a gun to my neighbor’s head to help pay a billionaire so that I can enjoy my hobby. I hope L.A. gets no more new stadiums or upgrades, so long as said stadiums or upgrades are paid for by taxpayers.
If the Seahawks pull out the win, I hope they let Marshawn Lynch cruise around MetLife Stadium, ghost riding the injury cart.
