Super Bowl 50 NFL Combine NFL Draft 2016 and WHAT?

 The NFL has made football a year long entertainment factor where fans can enjoy events every month.  The billion dollar industry has every NFL fan involved in Combine, free agency, the Draft, OTA's, Training Camp, and more.  They have guaranteed a year long stream of revenue.  It is simply genius.  It is one of the reasons why I have so much love and respect for the National Football League.

With so many different teams looking to make it to the Big Game in Houston next year, fans are eating, sleeping, and breathing the NFL.  And how can you blame them?  Super Bowl 50 week was one of the best I have ever been to as the city of San Francisco really had mastered the the events leading up to the big game in every way shape and form.  It all started with a fantastic media day as thousands of media outlets from all over the world were able to zone in on the top two NFL teams in the world.  The biggest, baddest, and best broadcasting crews were dressed to the nines and out in full effect asking question after question to the athletes that took the field on February 7th, 2016.  Lets just say that the stars of the show did not let them down.

Suits and Sneakers paired with Glazer Palooza for a night to remember as athletes from Rob Gronkowski to Marshall Faulk (who was the MC for the Elevee Lifestyle fashion show) showed up styling and profiling for this invite only event.   The event kicked off the exclusive party schedule in style with celebrity sightings from sports, music, movies and more.  It was a night to remember.

Radio Row was packed to the max as daily media members, athletes, and celebrities from all over the world waited thirty to forty minutes to pick up daily media passes from the Super Bowl Media Center.  It was worth the wait.  We were able to get fantastic interviews and for the average fan who was able to walk through the NFL Experience connected to Radio Row on Friday I guarantee they will remember that day for the rest of their life.  If you wanted to catch a glimpse of Jamie Foxx, Cuba Gooding Jr., Jenny McCarthy, Mark Cuban, Tony Romo, Coach Chuck Pagano, Troy Aikman, Coach Jen Welter, Brandon Marshall (to name a few) radio row was the place to be Super Bowl week.

Don't forget the first ever NFL women's summit where females that have made history like coach Jen Welter, Serena Williams, Billy Jean King, Jordan Sparks, Sarah Thomas and Charlotte Jones Anderson spread their wisdom to a packed house.   This ticket was in high demand.   I still can't figure out why they gave the first and only Female to officially coach in the NFL in 2015 less than fifteen minutes to speak at an NFL event, but who am I to complain.   I am just a radio host and writer that has a passion for the NFL with hopes and dreams to show the world that athletes and coaches do fantastic things off of the field.

The fine people at Chat Sports along with SQOR hosted a WISE event with Coach Jen Welter where she spoke and motivated a select group of female executives, and industry professionals that people were still talking about at Leigh Steinberg's legendary event on Saturday.

EA Sports/Madden event had the entertainment of the week with Ludacris, Fall out Boy, Too Short, and more were kicking it old school for the elite invitee's.   (One of my favorite events of the week).  If you are anybody in the sports and entertainment industry you made an appearance at this event.  I was intrigued my Jameis Winston's girlfriend as she reminded me of Beyonce.  She actually is extremely intelligent, and is pursuing a career in Sports Broadcasting.  (Maybe I will call her to be the next Sports Girl.)  The event was a thrill on many levels.

SQOR sports outdid themselves with their Legends Of The Game event that highlighted some of the greatest athletes to ever pick up a football in the National Football League.  Brett Favre, Tiki Barber, and Charles Woodson were just a few names to walk the red carpet and present at this highly sought after ticket on Friday evening.  This invite only event was standing room only as the PAC 12 building hosted the biggest and best in sports.  I have mad respect for their CEO, Brian Wilhite, and have to give a shout out to Piper Cook and staff for one of the classiest events a Super Bowl week has ever experienced.

Nobody does an event better than Leigh Steinberg as he outdid himself at his 29th annual Super Bowl party event that brought in star athletes, coaches, celebrities and bestows honors every year.  I literally cried to see my dear friend on stage with awards for Coach Hue Jackson, Browns owner Jimmy Haslam, Walter Peyton award winner Anquan Boldin, and Jack Brewer as philanthropy is what makes Leigh Steinberg and his partner Cosmo DeNicola legend all stars.  This event will never disappoint and getting an invite is like getting a golden ticket to Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory each year.

There was Playboy, Direct TV, Maxim, Leather and Laces, Rolling Stone, and several others as it is physically impossible for one person to attend them all unless you have invented a way to clone yourself.  It was a week to remember as I have made friends, business connections, and allies in the industry which I eat, sleep, and breathe every second of my free time.

So what happened this week at Combine?
What happens next week on March 9th when free agency officially begins?
What will "Draft City" look like April 28th in Chicago?  I guess you will have to wait for the next blog as this one has enough punch to knock Ronda Rousey out cold.

Enjoy the pictures, and for a full recap visit in the next few weeks as yes I still have not had time to upload all of the professional videos, pictures and videos from Super Bowl 50 week yet.  Yes, I know three weeks have gone by, but I have been extremely busy washing my hair and painting my toes.  (That was my attempt at humor.)
