I feel like it's XMas morning and my parents won't wake up so I can open my presents. I'm so pumped up to get this draft going. Who's with me?

I wish they didn't stop and just went thru the night and just kept picking. I'd stay up for 2 days straight if they wanted to do it that way.

No idea why, but I get so darn excited by the draft.

Let's go!!!!!!

I kinda am. Fact is, the Steelers may not pick till really freakin' late so who knows if I'll even be up (problem with getting old and having to be up early!)

Yeah, it does suck getting old and have to get up early, but some days are just worth fighting thru. I actually preferred the Sat/Sun all day drafts of old.

2 years ago I was in SF for the draft and it was great. Finished work and dinner meeting. Missed the beginning of the draft, but when I got done and went to watch the draft, I got there 10 minutes before the Steelers picked. I wish I had more time to look at the board and review ahead of time, but it was cool having the draft done earlier than on the East Coast.

Gonna watch the hockey game and keep tabs on the draft on-line with a bit of surfing backi and forth, until the Steelers are on the clock. By then the hockey game will long be over, I imagine.

Hello all. I am a long time lurker and first time poster. I've been a Steeler fan since 1970, and can't remember a draft that is this important in a long time.Let's hope that Colbert and company have a strong 3 days, and we draft a couple or three special players. GO STEELERS.

I have nervous butterflies actually. Excited but worried that Jones will be gone before the Steelers pick

Whoopsie! ;)

I wasn't that pumped. I knew the Steelers would either trade down or get Jones. nothing to see here....

I found myself banging on my steering wheel during my drive home from work today just to burn off the excess energy. Also, from 8:00-10:00 while waiting for the Steelers pick, I must have got up to use the bathroom nearly a dozen times...nervous bladder I guess...I remember having to use the bathroom a lot prior to job interviews and such.

Funny! Although I wasn't pumped I was all nervous and jacked about 2 minutes before the pick like it was game day!! Pavlov's conditioning baby!

I was much worse last year when we got DeCastro. I felt like Ralphie May in his Cuban coffee skit that night.

That's funny. I was out one night many years ago with some middle eastern friends that wanted to go to this Turkish place and we had turkish coffe and it was the same sort of thing. It was like a sludge that tasted wonderful and I drank 2 small cups like espresso sized and I couldn't sleep for 2 days. And this was after a long night at some bars near UNC. I shoulda been able to sleep like a baby after a few beers that night, but this coffee was insane. I imagined that must be what cocaine is like.

I had to take someone from out of town out another time and they wanted to order redbull and vodka. I don't really like either, but I had some just to be social. I rarely ever drink but will on rate ocassion if I have to take someone out. 2 drinks are about my limit because I don't have a tolerance. After having this mixture I was wide awake for the rest of the night.

Maybe this wouldn't have a similar effect on a normal person? But I typically avoid alcohol and caffeine.

I don't drink alcohol at all (or do any drugs...never have...my wife will tell you that the Steelers and Penguins are my vice), and I'm not a big caffeine person either (no coffee, tea, or energy drinks for me...although I will splurge with a big ol' Mountain Dew to get me through the long drive 5+ hour drive each way to and from Pittsburgh for games). One night in college, when I had to pull an all-nighter to complete a paper (procrastination), I drank way too much Mountain Dew and ate way too many Skittles. I was literally shaking in the middle of the night and that was just from caffeine and sugar. I can't imagine what street drugs would do to my body...no desire whatsoever to find out.

I do no caffeine. And sugar makes me feel ill. I used to go to parties/bars and drink in college, but stopped afterward and would only have a drink once every blue moon. I'd be afraid to try a street drug. I don't even like prescriptions because they make me feel funny. I had a neck injury and got a muscle relaxer from my doc and he told me to take it before bed and it would help. I remember standing at the counter in my kitchen and taking a pill and drinking a glass of water and before I finished the water, my legs started wobbling and going numb. I barely made it to my living room and couch before passing out and I slept for close to 15 hours.

I also have severe allergy to cats. If I was around someone that was around someone who owned a cat, it can make me sick. It's a super sensitive allergy. And if it's bad I can break out and my throat swells so I'll have to take a benadryl on ocassion. Just one will knock me out.

I'd be afraid to come close to a street drug. I'm sure it would kill me most likely :)

I've been at work and seen other people pop prescription pills like candy and seem to function perfectly fine. No idea how?
