WASHINGTON REDSKINS TO HOST 2020 VIRTUAL DRAFT EXPERIENCE PRESENTED BY 7-ELEVEN

LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – Washington Redskins fans are invited to attend the Redskins’ Virtual Draft Experience presented by 7-Eleven. Live coverage each day of the NFL Draft will be available on the Redskins’ social media channels and include interviews with Redskins coaches, players and celebrity fans as well as giveaways.

On Saturday, April 25 the Redskins and 7-Eleven will host the first-ever Virtual Draft Party that will allow fans to celebrate together from the comfort and safety of their homes.

“We hope the NFL Draft will be a source of joy and excitement for fans who welcome some distraction during these extremely challenging times,” said Head Coach Ron Rivera. “The Virtual Draft Party is meant to be a celebration that will create a sense of unity for Redskins fans as we continue this fight together, while understanding we have a responsibility to do the right thing by not celebrating together physically.”

  • Thursday, April 23 – live Draft coverage and analysis
  • Friday, April 24 – live Draft coverage and analysis
  • Saturday, April 25 – Virtual Draft Party that includes Draft coverage and exclusive celebrity and influencer appearances, player interviews, fan interaction and giveaways
“Voice of the Redskins” Larry Michael will host the coverage along with a number of special guests joining throughout the experience, including Redskins Head Coach Ron Rivera, Vice President of Player Personnel Kyle Smith, QB Dwayne Haskins Jr. and alumni Fred Smoot and Brian Mitchell. Specific timing and additional current and former players, as well as celebrity and influencer appearances will be announced in the coming weeks.

All coverage will be streamed live on the Redskins’ Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube pages.

Registration for the Virtual Draft Party is free for all fans at Redskins.com/VirtualDraft.

“7‑Eleven stands committed to providing customers with what they want, when and where they want it,” said Marissa Jarratt, 7-Eleven senior vice president and chief marketing officer. “That’s why 7-Eleven is offering Redskins fans craveable food like pizza and wings, beer in participating markets and other items to enjoy during their Virtual Draft Parties. Items are available for pickup in-store or via free, contactless delivery using the promo code FREE4U upon checkout.”

Larry's a really good guy ... just never been a good play-by-play guy. Absolutely cannot/will not give down and distance, always seems like he's commenting for a TV audience that can actually, you know, see what's going on for themselves. Maybe he'll rock the draft call though.

I am still bitterly mystified as to why Herzog was let go so unceremoniously. Snyder, through his primary henchman (Karl Swanson) protested they knew nothing about the impending change by 106.7 who they claimed 'acted unilaterally'. Of course, that insistence rang pretty hollow when it became clear that Larry Michael would be taking over for Frank.

It was only a matter of time before the most famous Redskins announcer team ever assembled (or ever to be assembled) was dismantled. Herzog was an undeserving victim of a corporate power move, Sam Huff was diminishing cognitively at what was becoming an alarming and embarrassing rate, and it was only a matter of time before Sonny himself had to hang it up.

Still - they robbed Herzog of going out on his own terms. I'll never really forgive that.

'Touchdown! Washington Redskins!'

I still hear it. You know - on those rare occasions when it happens :)

they were usually a split second ahead, but I would mute the tv and watch the games with them doing the play by play. would rather deal with the fractional split, than listen to anyone else.
