The big game may not be for a couple more hours but there is another game that has people talking already. I am talking about the DIRECTV Celebrity Beach Bowl 2011 which took place yesterday at Victory Park in Dallas and some of your favorite A-list stars were there to join in the fun.
Well they don’t call it the DIRECTV Celebrity Beach Bowl for nothing and yesterday’s fifth annual game brought out many celebs in full force. Oh yes the star studded event included hotties like Chace Crawford, Jerry Ferrara and Josh Duhamel to name a few. Hollywood’s starlets didn’t let the boys have all the fun either. Nope lovely ladies like Jessica Szohr, Hayden Panettiere and Marisa Miller took the field to prove football isn’t just a guys game.
You can check out some pictures of this year’s event here and let me just say that word on the street is that Hayden and Marisa took their football playing duties very very seriously. The Daily Mail is reporting that the blonde beauties had a friendly face off as they each played a no holds bar game, you can check out some video footage of Marisa below. The flag football game was open to the public and drew an amazing crowd as fans hoped to catch a glimpse of their favorite athletes as well as celebrities duking it out on the field, well beach I guess in this case.
It is becoming one of the biggest events to happen during Super Bowl weekend, not only for the stars that participate but for the fans who look forward to it each year and yesterday’s DIRECTV Celebrity Beach Bowl 2011 was no exception. I have to say this is just one more reason I wish I was in Dallas this weekend. Something tells me though that this event is going to be around for some time so I just may still get to see it live someday.
