Remember when I said during the day yesterday that I would save indulging in the finer fruits of life until nighttime? Yeah…well an open bar with unlimited Black Label and a white chocolate fountain made things a little interesting. Anyway, the night started out well. I picked up my date from her apartment and we were on our way to the AAFL Draft Afterparty. My email invite said that the festivities would start at 7pm, and I am sure that the party I was invited to actually did begin at 7; however, we arrived at 6:15PM and somehow made our way into a formal dinner event that was reserved only for CEOs and executives of major corporations looking to invest in the AAFL Florida team. After a healthy dose of filet mignon, tilapia, and Black Label, I was set.
At the end of dinner, they had a drawing for season tickets at our table and my date won, ensuring me a seat for every Team Florida game this year. I will still attempt to gain press passes. After dinner, the party began. Players started to get loose, sign autographs, and even more food and booze were introduced to the new population who had recently arrived. Roast beef carvers, chocolate fountains, and beginning my drinking at 6:30PM made this night a complete success. Not to mention, I met my favorite college football player of all time, Peter Warrick. See below for photos:

Obsessed with few, but obsessed with Peter Warrick nonetheless.

Things started getting sloppy. And then we went out to the clubs. No pictures necessary. 🙂
