    I have a friend with season tickets for the Heat. Before he went to last night's game, he said it was gonna be a very tuff game, as the Nets were 4-0 vs us during the season. I told him he was full of it, and the Heat will win by 20. He said if they do, he'll give me his tickets for the next game.

    Well, the Heat won by 21, and I now have tickets for the "Thursday night game" and they are VG seats. Lucky me huh?

    I can't see recording the draft, just not the same, and am trying to trade for a later game but, others have the same problem with the conflict. What would you do?

    GO TO THE GAME! The draft happens every year, having a team like the Heat doesn't come around very often. Enjoy it while it's here.

    Besides, you can always come here and complain about our picks/Hickey after the game :p

    DVR the draft and watch it as if it were live (except fast forwarding through commercials) as soon as I got home from the heat game.

    Go to the game. I have a similar quandary as we are going to a friends draft party Thursday but I plan on watching the game on another TV instead of anxiously waiting till about 11 pm when #19 is finally called. Personally I could care less where the first 18 guys go.
    You can probably get back home and still see the Fins pick unless they trade up which I doubt.
    Have fun and bring us home another victory dude :up:

    I don't even like the NBA, but going to the game is the winner by a mile. The draft is only fun because it's the only football we get for months.

    I had another scheduling conflict years ago. The Pub had 30 of us going to a Lions game, with the bus, etc. However the Marlins forced a game #7 to win the World Series, and the game was moved to a second Monday Night game.

    I had a big birthday party for my wife set up for Monday night. She was a Saint in having no problem in moving the party a day, and went with me to the game.

    i need to qualify my previous comment by saying that i love the heat, but i love anything having to do with the dolphins (including the draft) 1000 times more (at least). it isn't even close. i love watching the draft. i do so much research, and look forward to it all year long. it is one of my favorite events of the year. if i wasn't absolutely certain i would be able to get home after the heat game and sit and watch the draft from the beginning on the dvr as if it were happening live, without knowing any of the picks that had been made, i would stay home and watch the draft. if i was certain of all those things, i would go to the game and watch the draft when i got home.

    Live playoff game or world series > televised event or wife's B day every time. Of course with the wifey it probably cost you a dozen roses on top of your regular B day present. Small price to pay.

    If you are stuck making that decision you have no business going to the Heat game.

    Orchids, Godiva, and a late night visit to The Forge. Cost more than going to the game but, was worth it.

    Does the Forge still have the guys that brush crumbs off your table while your eating and fill your water glass after every sip ?

    That's simply not true I've been a Heat fanatic sine "The Kangaroo Kid" who I got to know a bit, came here to start the franchise. Thing is I get to go to at least one playoff game every series, sometimes two. So, it's not a singular big event for me, although I love to go to the games.

    IF it were a big game vs the past Celtics or Knicks, there would be no question at all. However, I believe the Heat will dispose of the Nets in five, and that has some bearing .

    They went through a change 4-5 years ago to be more "acceptable" to the middle class patrons. Their food, wine selections, and service are still as good as it gets but, you do not have to take out as big of a bank loan to go there. lol

    I'm going to the Heat game and will be following Roger Gotohell's ridiculous and drawn out process of the first round on my phone.

    GO HEAT!

    go to the Heat game, the draft is pretty boring except when your team is picking. the heat are possibly on the way to a 3 peat, enjoy them winning.

    Go to the game.

    Not even a question in my mind.

    Draft is a draft, not to mention sit around for 2 hours waiting for Dolphins to pick.

    This shouldn't even be a question, especially since they may not even make a pick tomorrow.

    Lololol this is a really a tough decision for you? What's the incentive to actually watch the draft anyway? Most of the commentary is useless. Any/all updates can be seen online as breaking news.

    There's only a few minutes of excitement with the draft pick then it's over. You got all Summer long to discuss the pick, go to the game.

    Game - No Brainer! You can FF thru the commercials, talking heads' bloviating (e.g. Kiper's rant when passing on Brady Quinn) etc. to hone in on the good stuff. And for all you know, we may end up with a "WTF Ted Ginn" type moment at that. :idk: So spare yourself alot of BS, possible agita, and (although I don't believe so), enjoy what might be a closing window to watch the greatest player of this generation compete in the playoffs in a Heat uni. Oh and if the great Micky Arison lifted the Dustin Beaver ban, maybe you can pee in his sizzurp too. :up:

    Problem solved. I traded my tickets tonight to a season ticket holder, who lived in Boston, for tickets to game #1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. He believes that the Nets will win the series, and he will get the tickets for nothing. I can't see that happening, and see it as a good deal.

    Back to getting ready for my draft party.

    No. Not sure when the last time you went was, but it's pretty much the gayest restaurant in the world now. I don't mean that in a derogatory way, btw, just to be clear. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that. I just can't think of any other way to describe it.

    Totally different menu, vibe, and clientele.

    Agreed, it is most definitely different than years gone by. However, the food, wine, and service is still great. The clientele is not much of a concern for us. We live in the melting pot on a day to day basis.

    One great example, although day and night from The Forge, is The Deuce bar on 14th street, the oldest bar in Miami Beach. Depending on when you go in there, you will find gays, lesbians, drag queens, bikers, lawyers, politicians, construction workers, etc, etc. It is a Crazy combo but, everyone gets along great, which is hard to believe.

    Back in the 80's they had a club there next to the restaurant that was a fun place for late night adventures. As a matter of fact a good friend of mine met his future wife there. In the 90's i went there for dinner several times and the lasting memories I have are of waiter's in red jackets hovering as you are served. The service was excellent to the point of overkill. Food was great but very expensive so it was a special occasions only destination. Last time I was there was right around the time Versace was murdered and I thought it was going downhill even then.
    I was surprised to hear from South Beach it was still open.

    Let me guess. Only real fans allowed? Bet you don't allow girls in your sandbox either.

    Lol the "you're not a real fan" bs kills me.
