You know i've got to say, ownership is doing this right. Expose the kids, press conference, meet and greet weekend, EXPOSURE. Its about ****ing time ownership started going out of the way to do some stuff like this. Generate some excitement for this team.
It makes sense, everybody knows who the Bucs draft in the first round due to multiple press conferences, radio interviews, papers, billboards,etc. The Rays always have their pick throw out the first pitch when he signs, take BP before games, radio interviews, etc.
Before Stamkos came there was hardly any info about our first pick in the draft. It was like in training camp, oh that tall kid named Mihalik, yeah he was our first round pick this summer.
