Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: Sixers Draft Talk With Bodner, Hot Takes & Dellavedova

Mario-Hezonja

One month before the draft, and we’re YouTube central over here on the Rights To Ricky Sanchez.

We talk about getting the Ricky some respect, the NBA Playoffs, some recent Philadelphia media Sixers #HotTakes, and of course, get deep into the Hezonja love with Derek Bodner (follow Derek on Twitter and read his work at Liberty Ballers and his own website), as well as every other player who the Sixers may take at #3.

There is now a Twitter for the podcast, it’s run by our new intern, Phillip. Please follow at @RTRSPodcast.

Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: Live From The Sixers Lottery Party

RTRS Live

Who’d have guessed, two years ago when we started The Rights To Ricky Sanchez podcast would be doing a live version, that barely anyone could hear, in a packed Buffalo Wild Wings, in front of hundreds… (deep breath through nose) AND HUNDREDS of the pod’s supporters? No one would have guessed that. You’d be a moron to have guessed that.

But it happened, and it sounds, well, it sounds like it sounds. It’s a funny listen. You hear people boo Doug Collins and Howard Eskin. You hear people chant “asshole” at Andrew Sharp. And you hear Mike and I sort of try to do a show, and then eventually give up.

We showed up to Ricky, and chew bubblegum, and we were all out of bubblegum.

Next time, we’ll be more prepared. We didn’t expect so many people. We’ll bring bigger speakers. But for now, this is a fun listen if you were there and want to bask in the memory, or didn’t make it because you were stuck outside because we filled up the place, like this guy.

Thanks again for coming. You guys and gals are awesome.

Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: #OneSixEleven Sixers Lottery Party Recap

474019402

Well, that was pretty great.

There are two things you have to know about the second annual Rights To Ricky Sanchez / Liberty Ballers Lottery Party. 1. Andrew Sharp showed up, and took a picture with this guy. 2. They had to stop letting people into Buffalo Wild Wings on a Tuesday night because they were at capacity. Yikes!

Thank you so much for coming out. Mike and I decided that rather than eat like civilized human beings, we’d go do a podcast. Live podcast highlights will be released sometime on Wednesday.

Thank you so much for supporting the podcast. It means a lot to both of us.

MORE DETAILS

T-SHIRTS

IF YOU ORDERED A SHIRT FOR PARTY PICKUP, PLEASE CLICK ON THIS AND READ THIS IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT GETTING YOUR SHIRT.

Thank you, of course, to the folks at Cheesesteaktees for the production and selling of the shirts, and our friend Kevin Lennertz (@KevinLennertz) for the design.

Thanks to my wife for helping to man the t-shirt booth. Thanks to Tom Hogg from Cheesesteaktees for helping.

If you were an idiot and didn’t order one, we will have a VERY LIMITED QUANTITY to sell on site, cash only.

FREE RIDES

logo_mightyA bunch of people were complaining that WAAAAHHHH the Northeast is too far and WAAAAAHHHH they wanted to drink. Now, thanks to the ridesharing service LYFT, you’ll get a ride for free (up to $20). Just download the app, and enter promo code ONESIXELEVEN in the payments section of the app. Get the app HERE or on the Apple App Store or Google Play for Android.

TIMING

People get there very early last year. You should do that this year as well. Because the lottery itself is about 10 minutes long, the party itself is mostly before the lottery happens. Of course, when we get #OneSixEleven, we’ll stay all night. We’ll start officially at 6pm, but Mike and Spike will be there earlier than that.

THE LIVE RICKY RECORDING

We’ll be recording a LIVE version of The Rights To Ricky Sanchez (we think). It will start around 6:45. It might be a disaster, but we’re going to try. There will likely be a VERY SPECIAL GUEST.

SPECIALS

It’s TRADITIONAL TUESDAY at Buffalo Wild Wings, meaning wings are just .65 cents each. ARE YOU SERIOUS?! Eat a lot of them. Eat the hell out of them with their 16 signature sauces and five dry rubs. Also, if you can get there before 6pm, you can take advantage of their Happy Hour specials, including $3 select appetizers(Mozzarella sticks, Roasted Garlic Mushrooms, Chili con Queso Dip & tortilla chips, Mini Corn Dogs, a Regular sized order of Beer Battered Onion Rings and Tortila Chips & Salsa). They have $3 liquor specials for Absolut, Jack Daniels and Captain Morgan, as well as $3-$5 23oz Tall Draft Beers with 30 beers on tap!

Also, while you’re there, sign up to host your Fantasy Football Draft Party at BWW. Book your Fantasy Football party with 10 or more people and receive a FF Draft Kit filled with: A draft board, stickers with the players names on them, (20) $5 coupons for future purchases, the Brag Flag, and (10) bottle openers with the BWW logo. The kits are limited, so book your party ASAP!

GIVEAWAYS

Thanks to our friend Marty at Sports Authority, we have a couple of sweet Sixers Starter satin jackets to give away. Buy all your Sixers gear at Sports Authority. 

HASHTAG

The official hashtag of the event for all of your tweeting and instagramming and Pinterest needs is #OneSixEleven. 

BEHAVIOR

Behave yourself. Have a great time.

This is going to be a really fun time, and Mike, myself and everyone at Liberty Ballers is so amazed and thrilled that this event can happen at all, and can be as big as it seems like it will be. Remember, when the ping pong balls fall our way, you’re going to need someone to hug.

* the Sixers are in no way involved with this party even though I took that logo and put it on the thing up top. sorry Sixers!

Rights To Ricky Sanchez | Liberty Ballers Lottery Party At Buffalo Wild Wings

 blackscreen-16-9

OMG IT’S HAPPENING AGAIN!

 

Last year, we had this stupid idea to have a big party for the NBA Lottery  and invite everyone. And lots of you showed up.

So we’re doing it again, and it’s going to be EVEN BETTER. I don’t know what that means, but you should be there. Before I get to the nitty gritty, here are the details:

WHERE: Buffalo Wild Wings, 9701 Roosevelt Boulevard, Philadelphia PA 19114 (directions)

DATE: May 19th, 2015

TIME: 6pm till whenever

T-SHIRTS: You can buy the t-shirts from CHEESESTEAKTEES at THIS LOCATION.

THE PLACE

 

buffalo-wild-wings

I don’t know where to start. Let’s just start here.

First, the place, it’s at Buffalo Wild Wings in the great northeast. It is ALL AGES. There is LOTS OF PARKING. There is BEER and OTHER ALCOHOL and mad SNACKS. You can eat all the snacks you can handle.

You can eat WINGS or BONELESS WINGS, or FLATBREADS or maybe some friggin’ NACHOS. Or perhaps some PULLED PORK SLAMMERS.

They will have some sweet food and drink specials for us.

Most importantly, they are happy to have us, and they will have a million loud TVs on the lottery so we can cheer when the Sixers steal the Lakers pick and we can boo when they show Doug Collins.

THE SHIRTS

 

Lottery Party Shirt 2015 Mockup Web 2

These shirts are amazing but are no longer for sale for party pickup.

If you are out of town:

T SHIRTS CAN BE ORDERED AND SHIPPED HERE

CHEESESTEAKTEES has a bunch of other sweet shirts, like this Nerlens one or this Chuck one or this AI one.

You may be asking, WHO DESIGNED THIS FRIGGIN AMAZING SHIRT?! Well that is amazing artist Kevin Lennertz. He is an amazing artist and alumni of University Of The Arts, and he volunteered his services. Look at HINKIE! You can see all of Kevin’s really amazing art at his WEBSITE. Also, please follow Kevin on Twitter @KevinLennertz. 

Kevin is the best, please hire him!

GIVEAWAYS

We will have more to add, but we’re starting off BIG. Thanks to our friends at Sports Authority (thanks Marty), we’ve got some SWEET Sixers Throwback Starter satin jackets to give away. You’re going to come into the party looking like a SCHLUB and will leave looking friggin’ FLY in your Lottery Party t-shirt and Starter satin jacket from Sports Authority.

BUT SERIOUSLY…

 

Let’s be together for this. It was really fun last year, and it will be fun again.

Trust The Process. Join Our Cult. Fuck Andrew Sharp.
