This was a bit later in the night so about 6-7 people weren't in it. I think we peaked at 37 for the party.

BTW, I've had a number of people ask me about the photo of the woman in the black Bulls hat at the end of the video.

No, she wasn't actually at the party - although she easily could have been (that's my fiancée).

I took that photo a couple days later because I thought it would make a much more interesting closing shot than a picture of one of us eating pizza... :D

Ha! That was great.

Looks like a lot of fun. Awesome to see the tradition continue and grow as time passes.

Well, if anyone who actually knows you watches the video very closely (and they don't blink), they'll spot that you were definitely there in spirit! 8-)

I saw you snuck me in there right between you and Doug at about :25. Thanks Bruce! You really can be two places at once!

What a good Looking group of Bulls fans. Im sure it has been mentioned before but having realgm name tags with Avatars would be a cool addition.

I have video evidence on how excited I was for Daniel Gafford!


After seeing how good Gafford looks in summer league, I'm even happier that I put the "excitement shot" into the video! :)

Good stuff, love to see some familiar faces in there (shout out HinrichPolice!). Spent this years draft bedridden at home just out of ACL surgery and looking to Coby White's hair for moral support (it helped). Looking forward to being back in attendance next year.

You're absolutely right - this is my 7th draft party and each year it gets better and better!

I went to one with Electric Slim many moons ago (maybe 08?). I would attend next year for sure. It will save my wife from having to listen to me talk about it.

Due to Covid, Doug isn't having his annual draft party this year (2020).

So to help all my friends get through this, I'm bumping this thread with my 90-second video of last year's party. Good memories...

See you all next year!

Another reason that COVID has been a huge bummer!

Until next year, Doug!

Last time I was at Dougs draft party was in 2014 when we drafted doug mcdermott! I’m never going to forget the disgust in everyone’s face. Soooo many people now!! I love it! Looks like so much fun! Doug has always done a great job!
