This upcoming week should be eventful as far as Philadelphia Eagles news goes. The Birds begin OTAs on Tuesday, May 17. Media will be permitted to watch the team's entire practice for the first time in the Doug Pederson era. Sam Bradford is also set to talk for the first time since demanding a trade and then later returning to Philadelphia. Bleeding Green Nation will have coverage live from the NovaCare Complex.
But if you're looking for MORE than just Eagles coverage this week, allow me to recommend the Rights To Ricky Sanchez NBA Draft Lottery party! This is the third year the event is taking place. Last year the party had such a huge turnout that a big lined formed and Buffalo Wild Wings actually had to turn people away. This year the event is taking play at XFinity Live so there's plenty of space to fit everyone.
Even if you're not a huge Sixers/basketball fan, trust me, you should try to go. Members of the BGN / BGN Radio crew are going to be there. The Sixers can potentially get up to four first round picks, hence the #OneFourTwentyFourTwentySix hashtag.
Here's everything you need to know, via Spike Eskin:
Date: May 17th, 2016
Time: 6pm till 10pm (all night if we get the #1 pick or if Sam Hinkie shows up)
Place: XFinity Live, South Philadelphia
Cost: Free (parking free, but you must DOWNLOAD THIS TICKET) - You have to park in either LOT C or LOT D at the Wells Fargo Center. They are lots RIGHT NEXT to XFINITY Live! If you’d like to see exactly where to go in for lots C or D, GO TO THIS LINK.
We will have some great giveaways that you’d expect (Sixers stuff, XFINITY Live! gift cards, pictures with Jake Pavorsky), but the BIG stuff is coming from our great sponsor, LL Pavorsky Jewelers (707 Walnut, always at llpavorsky.com).
Lee will be giving away the following stuff:
* The first 250 people to go greet LL at his table will receive an LL Pavorsky gift bag, including a $100 gift certificate to LL Pavorsky Jewelers.
* A unique 36″ pearl and black spinel necklace, valued at $525.
* A $250 gift card to LL Pavorsky Jewelers.
* A pair of 1.00 carat diamond stud earrings, valued at $1595.
* And the final prize, a one time only, insane, ring with "TTP" on it, fully encrusted in diamonds. A diamond TTP ring. The value on this prize is $2500+.
* And if the Sixers get the #1 pick, LL has another secret prize he will give away.
Here's hoping you can make it. Let me know in the comments if you plan on being at the party.
