We are a group that knows each other pretty well and will all be present at the draft. We'd like something a little more exciting than picking names out of a hat to kick the season off.
We have an old beer ball (look it up, but it was made by Bud light back in the early 90's). We each have a ping pong ball that has our logo. We hook up a shop vac on blow and put it on one of the 2 holes and the balls begin swirling and as they exit the beer ball that is the draft order. We have since moved to a keeper league so the team that make the playoffs are set and the non-playoff teams have multiple balls based on performance from the previous season. We gather each year about a week before to hold the draft positions, fun time for everyone
