Come In Out Of The Draft-KEMOSABE Mocha Flavored Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 4/29/2016

“With the fourth pick of the 2016 NFL draft the Dallas Cowboys select Exekiel Elliott, running back, Ohio State,” the commissioner of the NFL, Roger Goodell, stated to the audience assembled at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago.

“Boy am I glad this pick is behind us,” I stated to the Vice President of Player Personal of the Cowboys after I had taken a sip of my mocha flavored coffee.

“That’s for sure, Franky. Now we have the best backfield in football,” he stated with joy and excitement. “What’s that coffee your drinking?” he asked.

“It’s Kemosabe mocha flavored coffee.”

“Where can I get some?”

“I have several single serve packets in my briefcase. I’ll get one for you.”

Five minutes later I returned to our “War Room”, a room at Valley Ranch set aside for the Owner, his family, the Coach, the General Manager, the Vice President of Player Personal and the scouts. The air in the room on draft day is so tense you could cut the air with a knife. “Here’s your mocha flavored coffee, Ronnie,” I stated as I handed him the container.

Before he could say thank you, the Coach called out, “I smell some delicious mocha flavored coffee.”

“It’s over here,” Ronnie called back.

“Well, can you get six containers of that mocha flavored coffee so we can celebrate the newest addition to the Cowboys, Exekiel Elliott?”

Ten minutes later the owner’s secretary called out to the senior management of the Cowboys who had just witnessed the New York Jets pick Darron Lee, an inside linebacker from Ohio State, “Why don’t you guys come in out of the draft? Your mocha flavored coffee is ready.”
