The opening night of the NFL draft was held in the form of a video call because of the stay-at-home order. Titans’ head coach Mike Vrabel’s appearance was, undoubtedly, the most memorable one thanks to his family members.
Vrabel was going live from his house in Nashville, but the Titans’ backdrop was not the only detail. He was accompanied by two young men — one wearing a full-body light blue spandex costume, and another one sporting Vrabel’s own old Pro Bowl jerseys.
The colorful visuals absolutely captivated the viewers who quickly started to snap pictures of their TV screens. Coach Vrabel’s draft party quickly went viral.
After the conference was over (with Titans drafting Georgia offensive tackle Isaiah Washington at No.29), Vrabel provided some explanations. His younger son Carter was the one wearing the vintage uniform, and the spandex guy turned out to be his friend, Jackson, dressed as the Atlanta Brave’s mascot The Freeze.
Vrabel said that the dress-up was an impromptu decision made 10 minutes before the call, reports the Associated Press.
