Twitter goes nuts over Buccaneers using parrot to deliver draft picks

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Monday that their day three draft picks will be delivered by a parrot, and Twitter reacted as you would have expected it to.

The Buccaneers will have an announcer stationed on the infamous Raymond James Stadium pirate ship, and a pirate will be delivering the picks to them. Naturally, this gimmick was roasted on Twitter, with various tweets pointing out how silly and superfluous it was.

You: The draft has become ridiculous, overhyped and gimmicky

The Bucs trading up in the the draft to draft a parrot is more understandable than a kicker

It’s all fun and games until the parrot leaks the Bucs draft picks to Adam Schefter

“What was your draft experience like, Johnny?”

“Incredible. Gathered around the tv with my family, friends, and loved ones, and then a parrot said I’d made it to the NFL. Dreams do come true.” https://t.co/0TSqisQmuh

In regards to the parrot calling the Bucs’ Saturday draft-picks on TV, my Titans friend sent me this as a response: “A parrot would be an upgrade to their current front office”

A fine time for all to get that lawn mowed. https://t.co/vsyQHMB8iS

As long as this goes better than the whole trading up for a kicker thing, this should be fine. Twitter will laugh, though, and it’s hard to blame them.
