The Super Bowl Kickoff Party Planners Just Wanna Fly

Thursday, September 13, 2007


From AZ Central via Shakedown Sports comes the news that the Super Bowl Kickoff thingy the NFL had planned now has a band! The band is one of the staples of American music. U2, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Coldplay do not hold a candle to this force of melodic perfection!

If you remember these hits from the 1990s and early 2000s, you'll want to rock out at the free party at Glendale's Westgate City Center marking 100 days until next year's Super Bowl.

Sugar Ray, the Southern California rock band led by singer and Extra co-host Mark McGrath, will be the headlining act at the "Countdown to Kickoff . . . 100 Days and Counting" celebration Oct. 27.
"We feel this will appeal to a broad audience, including families, everyone in the community who wants to come out to a fun football festival, and our sponsors," said Erin Brin, vice president of events for the host committee.

("Is Right Said Fred not available? Maybe the Proclaimers??? No? Damn. Fine, tell Sugar Ray we'll take them."- Erin Brin)

True story....I saw Sugar Ray play at the Fairfax Virginia County Fair last year. Mark McGrath is as dreamy as ever in case you were wondering.

I guess they're saving Jon Bon Jovi for the real Super Bowl celebration.

There is a law now that he must be included in every non-NBA sporting event, you know.

You stay classy, AA. I hope you enjoyed your caramel apple/caramel cod.

Blue Oyster Cult or Foghat not available?

I will scoop out my eyeballs now, rather than wait until then.
