CANCELED: Honey Badger's NFL Draft Party
Naturally, with the draft being a three-day extravaganza and Mathieu's window for being drafted looking to be anywhere from the second round to the fifth round, just to be on the safe side, Mathieu was planning his party for Day Three, Saturday, right?
Okay, well, maybe Friday is a safe time to have the party then, after rounds two and three, right?
Tyrann Mathieu scheduled his draft party for the opening night right there in the Big Apple, and not only did he schedule it for the night of the first round (a round where I stand a better chance of getting drafted than he does), but he touted himself as a "1st Round Draft Pick" in the invitation.
I don't know if this was the ballsiest move ever or the dumbest. Probably both. I'm sure whatever teams hadn't been scared off by Mathieu's judgment in college are now wondering if he's really changed. Clearly, the space in his brain once occupied by dope smoke hasn't been replaced with self-awareness.
Matheiu eventually (and wisely) canceled the party late Wednesday afternoon, but even that was done in the third person via Twitter:
