Gents, we made it. The NFL Preseason (and with it your road to fantasy football immortality) begins today.

    This one's on the house

    The Draft

That’s what you’ll get with the “Ultimate Live Draft Experience” giveaway from House Play, a members-only gentlemen’s club in Flatiron. To enter, email insidehook@houseplaynyc.com with subject line "Ultimate Live Draft Experience" and tell 'em why you should win.

    The Tool

    Fantasy football: there’s an app for that. Actually, there are approximately a bazillion apps for that. But the best is RotoWire’s FF Draft Kit. Two features we love: live mock drafts (serious commute enhancer) and customizable cheat sheets that accommodate any league’s scoring settings. Kiss that annual middle-round meltdown goodbye (“What do you mean I drafted the wrong Adrian Peterson?!”).

  • Mr. Throwback

    Prices vary

    The Attire

    Vinny Testaverde Jets jerseys. Herschel Walker Giants jerseys. Mr. Throwback has both, plus old-school satin bomber jackets repping everyone from the Raiders to the Bengals. For those who – like Bushmills – have been fans since way back.
