Everything you need to know about hanging out with @BGN_Radio at the 2017 NFL Draft: https://t.co/Xr0Cs0dMEg— BleedingGreenNation (@BleedingGreen) April 24, 2017
Pretty much, they’ll be broadcasting LIVE from the NFL Draft. They’re the first and only podcast to ever cover the NFL Draft. You’ll be able to listen live here.
Sadly, I’ll be in Durham for the ACC Lacrosse Tournament, but if that didn’t exist, I would definitely be going to this. You should too! The Bleeding Green Nation dudes, including NLL source gawd John Barchard, are unbelievable with what they do. Heck, you should like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter, as well as their BGN Radio page on Facebook and Twitter!
