Stars Travel to Indy for Super Bowl Pre-Game Festivities
Always an entertaining event, DIRECTV's Sixth Annual Celebrity Beach Bowl took place at Victory Field in Indianapolis, Indiana on Saturday afternoon (February 4).
Adding plenty of eye candy to the no-holds-barred flag football match, Nina Dobrev, Kate Upton, Maria Menounos and Chrissy Teigen were among the celebrities suiting up for the gridiron competition.
For the pre-Super Bowl game, "How I Met Your Mother" star Neil Patrick Harris and "Blue Collar" hunk Matt Bomer were named as "celebrity assistant coaches” while Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton and the Detroit Lions’ gunslinger Matthew Stafford acted as head coaches.
With former footballers Joe Montana and Warren Moon serving as quarterbacks, other celebs partaking in the event included "Gossip Girl" actor Chace Crawford and singer Jordin Sparks, as well as "True Blood" stud Joe Manganiello and rapper Snoop Dogg.
Rounding out the slate of competitors were Candica Accola, Erin Andrews and David Arquette, who said of his time in Indy, "What I really like about Super Bowl in general is that it introduces you to another city. Indianapolis is a beautiful city a lot of people might not know about or have not visited. To come here and to meet the people and see the city, that is my favorite part actually."
Always one of the hottest stops on the pre-game party circuit, GQ, Lacoste and Patron Tequila teamed up once again to throw a star-studded Super Bowl celebration in Indianapolis, Indiana on Friday night (February 3).
With several hundred stylish party guests packing into the arty Stutz Building venue, model/actress Brooklyn Decker mingled with fellow ladies such as Erin Andrews and Catt Sadler on the arrivals carpet before joining back up with her tennis pro hubby Andy Roddick to partake in the fun-silled festivities.
Also in attendance were Hollywood stars including David Arquette, Adam Levine, Joe Manganiello and Peter Berg, as well as pro athletes like Terrell Owens, Hines Ward and Greg Jennings.
Partygoers kept busy by hitting up the foosball and pool tables while sipping on an array of Patron infused cocktails, all the while enjoying musical entertainment provided by LL Cool J and The Roots drummer Questlove, who manned the deejay booth.
The GQ, Lacoste and Patron bash was among the many scheduled soirees in Indy this weekend, with the city playing host to Sunday night's Super Bowl XLVI between the New York Giants and New England Patriots.
