There’s nothing worse than anticipating a show or in last nights case the draft. And falling asleep midway through. Not only did it happen last night, it happened last Sunday for game 7 of the NBA finals. Here’s the deal; I’m an early to bed early to rise kind of gal. By 8:30 my kids are telling to get up off the couch and go to my bed. So all these late night sporting events that I really want to see, get left to the replays on ESPN at 5:00 am in the morning. Monday night football nearly kills me trying to stay awake. Yesterday, I at least made it through the first 6 picks. For some reason, the players and their families don’t seem as dramatic as their NFL counterparts on draft day. Lots of excitement, yes. All kinds of over the toppness (not sure that’s a word), no. Everyone seemed very calm and composed. When Adam Silver stepped to the podium, you didn’t hear the boos and jeers you might hear at the NFL Draft. To me, it felt like a different atmosphere. But again, I feel asleep after Buddy Hield went to the New Orleans Pelicans (I could talk about that team name for eternity). The one thing I am sure of from last night’s draft. Ben Simmons needs to help my 76’s. Please, please, please do something to get this team off of life support. Once such a great power house with respected players; is no longer the case. The city of brotherly love (that’s questionable at an Eagles game) needs to be great again on the hard wood floor. I’m praying that this year I can take the girls to a home game and get a good showing. And not just pay a good chunk of change for a blowout. In an effort to honor the 76’s with a recipe and true game day food, I introduce to you my Ben Simmons Philly Cheesesteak Nachos. Maybe these will bring us luck.
