NFL Draft Day–the Musical

by bobbysumms

It has just come to my attention that all players entered in the draft will choose an entrance song. I’ve never dreamed of playing in the NFL. I have dreamed of having an entrance song–it has been the subject of many late-night conversations, “If you could pick one song that would play every time you entered a room, what would it be?” Or, “If you played in the MLB, what would be your walk-up song?” My response, is always the same.


“With the first pick of the 2014 NFL draft, the Houston Texans pick Bert Summerlin.”

DUM DUM DUM dah dah.

DUM DUM DUM dah dah.

I would then peer around the edge of the door, where I was waiting backstage, and tip toe across the stage, facing the audience and mouthing, “WHAT A BEAUTIFUL WEDDING!” followed by a big hug with Roger Goodell, who knows he’s witnessing the biggest bust in NFL history.

There’s an excellent video on Deadspin, parodying the whole idea with past picks, and random music ie. Geno Smith coming out to Dave Matthews Band… gold. As Deadspin writes,

Even if the songs end up being terrible—Manziel is definitely picking that damn Drake song—making fun of kids’ taste in music seems more sporting than old men making fun of their suits and masturbating to their girlfriends.

This should be interesting, and I’m sure people in Vegas are betting on it. I’d put $4000000 that the first pick is Jadeveon Clowney and he comes out to this.
