Marquette honored their seniors.
But the city of Philadelphia was the big winner!
Philly: You absolutely KILLED it. Best draft experience ever. The standard has been set for every future draft city to try and match— trey wingo (@wingoz) April 29, 2017
Props to the people of Philadelphia. That's how to host a draft. No city has injected that much energy, electricity, excitement into draft.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 30, 2017
Won't grade the #Eagles' draft, but I know who deserves an A+ for its performance this weekend: the city of Philadelphia.— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) April 29, 2017
The city represented even better than I expected. That's going to be hard to top. Well done.— Tim McManus (@Tim_McManus) April 30, 2017

Listen to the latest edition of BGN Radio and their nearly lost voices!
And if you’re tired of Fly Eagles Fly, well...

Gov. Rendell on @SportsRadioWIP with us, says Philly is bidding to be official city of USA 250th + get Super Bowl and all AS games in 2026.— Glen Macnow (@RealGlenMacnow) April 29, 2017
But from someone that really wanted to be there but had other priorities, Philly put on a show. The city and the fans were spectacular, and showed why we’re the best city and have the best fans in the entire world. I was in our hotel lobby after we lost to UNC watching us pick Rasul Douglas in the third round and got goosebumps when “Fly Eagles Fly” was played, and there was still a large contingency of people there at 11:30 at night. I wanted to be a part of that, and I was in spirit (I did sing along). You can take me out of Philly, but you can’t take the Philly out of me. See you soon, beautiful!
Oh, and if drafts couldn’t get any better, THE PHILADELPHIA FLYERS GOT THE SECOND OVERALL PICK IN THE NHL DRAFT!
There was a reunion of The Godfather cast last night at Tribeca Film Festival.
