CANCELED: Honey Badger's NFL Draft Party

Categories: Game Time, Sports

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?

Wrong again.

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:

Rick Smith, I speak for everyone in this town responsible for content on a daily basis -- please, please, PLEASE draft Tyrann Mathieu!

What a stupid article celebrating a whole lot of nothing. It's ridiculous that this athlete smoking weed as much as he likes, is vilified unlike other athletes who regularly abuse sex and alcohol. Yeah, it was premature to make an invite but if he was only dissed bc of the marijuana? It's simply unfair. I'd rather have a pothead than an alkie or pervert around me, ANY day of the week.
