The Maxim Party
So yeah, I got into the Maxim Party, which is supposed to be the apex of Super Bowl cool. I have definitely never ever stood around a posh hotel swimming pool with so many famous people. It was overwhelming. Two people walked by and someone said they were from "The Hills" but there were too many other famous people for me even to worry about lowly "The Hills" actors.
Here's a very partial list: T.O., Steve Young, Ian Ziering, Anthony Michael Hall, McLovin, Chuck Lidell, Evander Holyfield, Cindy Crawford, Terrell Davis, Vernon Davis, Carson Palmer, Michael Clarke Duncan, Steve Nash, Raja Bell, Shawn Marion, Mario Lopez, Reggie Bush, Josh Duhamel, Keyshawn Johnson, Jason Whitlock, Jay Glazer, Rick Fox, Warren Moon, Ryan Seacrest and Diddy. Plus performances by Akon and T-Pain. Akon asked the crowd whether they were rooting for the Giants, Patriots or Konvicts. (Also, apparently, Tom Petty, John Elway, Larry David, Rob Schneider and Kim Kardashian.)
UnderArmour was giving away its first non-cleat shoes to celebrities. Perry Ellis was giving away its new fragrance, PE18. The organizers were giving away talking "Snakes on a Plane" pens, talking "40 Year Old Virgin" action figures and Kama Sutra massage lotion. The bartenders were serving Patron beverages, including the Maxim Margarita and the Cool Breeze featuring Patron Silver and soda served over ice with a splash of grapefruit juice.
The Suns left early; they had practice or something today. Rick Fox was being swarmed by women seeking photos. There were Maxim-type models everywhere, dancing in an official capacity of some sort. Oh, and on my way out, I trailed a tinted SUV with an electronic message: "Let us take you to the hotest [sic] parties in Scottsdale."
