Redskins Insider: January 28, 2007 - February 3, 2007

Bedlam On The Beach

Alright, peeps, it's officially out of control down here now. Ocean Drive is a writhing, sweaty mass of humanity. The streets are packed. We checked out this Ocean Drive magazine event, which has packed the beaches. They are hosting Volleypalooza as we speak (Jeremy hooked us up again), a crazy...

Art Monk Snubbed Again

Well, Art is out, still. I am sure you guys will be enraged, and rightfully so. I've been trying to get this up for an hour now, but wireless is a problem on the beach. From what we heard, Art did not even make the final cut, which was a...

Partying With Carmen Electra

We have seen the other side. Should we never cover another Super Bowl (which would probably be wise for all parties involved), at least we can always say that we partied with the big timers (or, kinda big timers). Last night we did the Leather and Laces party hosted by...

Your Daily Sabol

Our buddy Steve is just about the embark on his longest week of the year. Once the game ends Sunday night, his workload kicks in. By Thursday night he and his pees at NFL Films must have a pristine finished product for the folks at the NFL Network - the...

Richie Likes The Colts

Called Richie Petitbon for something entirely unrelated to the Super Bowl - you end up making a lot of out-of-the-blue calls in this business based on a rumor or a tip - and as always, fully enjoyed the conversation. Again, it ended up bearing no fruit in terms of the...

Last Night

Hey there. Sorry for the late start. Spent last night in South Beach. It's weird how there is like a different hot spot every night of the week, and apparantly you need to know the locals to have a real feel for it. We ended up back at The Delano,...

Flag Football, Celeb-Style

So I'm walking out of the media center this morning and run right into Jerad from Subway. He's wearing a Jeff Saturday Colts jersey - so we know where his allegiances rest - and was looking a little hefty. On the walk to the beach for the DirecTV Celebrity Beach...

Prince Is King

Best NFL event ever. Best press conference in the history of mankind. Prince did us all a favor and took no questions, just tore up the stage. Unbelievable. First of all, his guitar skills are ridiculous, and he was showing off his chops for the world's media. The man came...

Your Celebrity Minute

Just got back from the DirecTV flag football event - it rocked hardcore - and have to run to the Prince press conference, so will post all the details after that. We got the VIP treatment and it did not disappoint. Got a photo taken with Steve-O that we are...

A Call For Help

For the next three days we should be able to mingle with the stars a bit at parties and events. Given the collective wit you guys display, I am casting out for suggestions on possible questions to celebrities. Undoubtedly, I will concoct a few snide queries myself - some at...

Your Daily Sabol

Steve Sabol's favorite Super Bowl stories, part III Super Bowl XIII, post-game, in the Steelers' victorious locker room. Sabol. 'da man at NFL Films, is chatting with Mean Joe Greene. He and his crew are the only non-team employees in there (NFL Films gets to go right in after the...

Partypalooza

Ever wonder what goes into throwing a major Super Bowl party? Yeah, probably not, but actually it's pretty interesting. This is big business, and a year-long enterprise for some. To most people down here, the parties are way more important than the game itself. It's a marketing and branding bonanza,...

Last Night

Sorry I am late getting to this, but we had the usual assortment of press conferences this morning. Got out a bit last night in South Beach, and a good time was had by all. My buddy Michael has a condo down here, and he cooked a little Southern dinner...

Your Daily Sabol

Here's another anecdote from Steve Sabol - Lord of All Things NFL Films. It's from Super Bowl IV, and shows, once again, how far this event has come. So Sabol and the NFL Films gang book 20 rooms at the swank Bienville Hotel (Diddy, are you down with this establishment?)...

Media Day Wrap-Up

If you're anything like me, then one of your top three highlights of this past NFL season was Dennis Green's meltdown after blowing a big lead to the Bears on Monday Night Football. Remember, when he went on his "Just crown 'em" rant about the Bears and then smacked...

TV Azteca - Setting The Standard

There was but one star of media day, far and away, above all others. It wasn't a player or coach on either team, and our muse had almost nothing to say. But oh, how she shined. Ines Sainz. Like me, you probably had no idea who she is. But...

Media Day Follies - Part 1

Could the era of quasi-celebrity journalism be over? Has the worm turned? Judging by the turnout at media day down here in, maybe, just maybe, it has. Refreshingly enough, there was a lack of poseurs holding microphones here. A year ago, everywhere you turned on media day there was...

Media Day Madness

Slow night on Monday. No one died at the hotel that i am aware of, so that was a good thing. No signs of police tape, either. The parties get rolling in a few days, so it'll pick up. Promise. I will be deathly hung-over sometime soon. Today is media...

Escape From The Roach Motel

Had a great tour of South Beach from my buddy Michael, from Detroit, who owns some property down here. Getting acclimated a bit now. It's pretty ridiculous down here. A lot to take in along the visual smorgasbord. Need to get Lauren a birthday present at some point and need...

The Ex-Skins Factor

Cindy (Cyn-City in the Hizzie) suggested I do an item on the number of ex-Skins playing in this Super Bowl, and then make some kind of smart-aleck prediction based on that. So, sure I'm all for it. My first thought was, okay, are there any. No one leaped to mind....

The Super Bowl Of Silly PR

Some people think of Super Bowl week and instantly flash to thoughts of football, multi-million dollar TV commercials or bets gone horribly wrong. Me? I think of pathetically worded press releases. Now, again, in full disclosure, I butcher the English language on a daily basis on this blog, and the...

A Brief Redskins Interlude

To verify that I am indeed doing more than crashing parties and getting bombed on Presidente down here, I present to you some certifiable Skins news (small as it may be). Anyway, here's what i sent to Cindy a few minutes ago, you know, written like a proper journalists and...

Steve Sabol Is The Man

Spent a good 40 minutes on the phone with this dude recently. Few people know the Super Bowl like he does, having worked everyone as a camera man, director or grand poobah of NFL Films. After trading war stories about sick babies, the current level of sports journalism in this...

Greetings From Miami

Hola from Miami, peeps. It's amazing. Nice brisk evening around 60 degrees, and already two people have complained to me about the weather. Must be nice. I'll get a few things out of the way. I definitely drew the small straw on the hotel hierarchy. This place is downright shady....
