One of my favorite events of the year is Super Bowl, and I hit up Miami for six days, covering the hottest events leading up to the big game. One of the best moments for me was asking Minnesota Viking Sidney Rice to punch their mascot in the face (it was all love) and running into my boy Bernard Berrian over the weekend. I was rooting for The Minnesota Vikings all season--bummed they didn't make it to Super Bowl, but there's always next year. See my interviews with the boys as we talk Favre:
There were so many events to attend, but to me it's all about quality over quantity. I made sure that Young Hollywood had a presence at the best events, and one of the hottest events of the weekend in my opinion was the ESPN The Magazine's "Next" Party. I made a new twitter friend, Darnell Dockett of the Arizona Cardinals, who talked to me about his new vitaminwater flavor called "90 Punch." Neyo and Keri Hilson performed and all of the biggest names in sports and entertainment were there to celebrate. See for yourself:
On a side note, notice in all of the videos I'm sporting a golden tan :) I want to give a shout out to Fake Bake for getting me tan-tastic before my Miami trip. This was my first time having a custom spray tan, and I was really impressed how natural it looked - I'll never get into a tanning bed again.
Another highlight of the weekend was interviewing Jerry Rice, a day before he was inducted to the Hall of Fame. I grew up watching Jerry and my dad was a huge 49'ers fan. I am so proud to say I have interviewed him, as he is such a class act and will always be a legend. Peep my interview with Jerry here:
There is so much more that went on during Super Bowl, but you will have to see it all for yourself on our Sports Page. Last time I was in Miami was for Super Bowl XLI, when the Colts played the Bears--it was the time of my life, but I must say the energy from the Saints fans this year does not compare. It definitely was a New Orleans takeover--the streets pretty much turned into Mardi Gras Miami. The Saints fan were a major contribution to their win, because the energy of the "Who Dat" chant is like no other. Congrats New Orleans!
I leave today's blog with a lil victory chant that I learned from a Saints fan in the streets of Miami:
"Colts on the ground, Colts on the ground, they lookin like the fools with the Colts on the ground!"
