Super Bowl XLV Aces & Angels Party: My Top 10 Observer-ations

Categories: Super Bowl XLV

10.
Never really listened to Little Texas before last night's bash at Fair Park's Centennial Hall, but they do a pretty good rendition of KISS's "Detroit Rock City." Even Master of Ceremonies Gene Simmons was bobbing his head.

9. This just in: Nothing goes better with a cold shot of Jagermeister than a hot Jagermeister girl to serve it. I lost count at four. Or was it five?

8. Saw Tashard Choice and Sam Hurd and Randy White roaming around. Probably lots of others, but who knows? Centennial Hall is so big it was easy to get lost. Or to hide.

7. At the silent auction I bid on a framed, signed picture featuring the Seinfeld cast and co-creator Larry David. I crapped out when price headed north of $1,500. Wow.

6. There's something somehow therapeutic about losing $7,500 on a single hand of blackjack and laughing it off. Love me some Casino Night.

5. As a kid - waaaay before walkmans or iPods - I used to love KISS. Posters on the wall, 8-tracks in the stereo. The works. And when I wanted to hear some "Dr. Love" while mowing the back yard I simply opened my bedroom window and cranked it so loud that it was audible: To me and the rest of Duncanville. My apologies Mona Lane.

4. Shannon Tweed = Hot. Yep still, at 54. ThenNow.

3.
The red carpet was crazy. Probably 100 photogs and reporters looking and snapping and waiting and craning and pushing to see ... anything. At one point I thought our 105.3 The Fan broadcast table was gonna buckle under the crush.

2. One of the highlights of my life: Shaking Gene Simmons' hand, while wearing a Gene Simmons mask. God I'm a dork. And yes, that'll be me in an upcoming episode of Family Jewels.

1. Was the party perfect? 'Course not. Super Bowl parties never are. But the bottom line: Thousands of folks helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Wounded Warrior Project. That's what I call a super success.

Im just curious  to know ...if the party was such a success and raised so much money for the WWP...how come the promoters and sponsors didnt award the 10,000$ seat to the winner of the poker tournament they put on at the event....or was that fake as well?

#9. Instead of trolling for a pic on google, your crack staff took pictures of the event and had a few pics of the actual girls at the event. That would take too much work for you though, I guess.

Let's start with your picture, Weefake Radio personality:#1: Kiss mask=gay..check#2: barely tall enough to reach the bar to order drink ..check#3: Doucher appliqué on shirt, check#4: Metal head studded bracelet, won at the State fair in 1983..check#5: Live strong bracelet, check#6: Talking about losing 7500 in fake money=bragging about your fantasy team..check#7: Jagermeister shots= sucked 15 years ago, when I had my last shot of it..#8: bragging about the crush of people around the Fails bcast position, Y'all wouldve had to setup next to the bathroom for anyone to even see your failed desk.#9: WWP is a noble cause for charity, I bet you contributed jack shot to their dollar total though.

I did deduce the blackjack money was as fake as his persona, but piss-poor writing makes it easy for people to draw other conclusions.

Casino Night = fake money, folks. I have fond, fond memories of Ms. Tweed from years back. She looks like she's dabbling in the Botox. Don't go all stretch face and fish mouth on us Shannon.

You can spend your money how ever you want, but it feels like a knife in my side to hear you dropping $7500 on a hand of black jack & bragging about it. Bring back more SAM Merten!...I guess I dont have to read your dribble, but the comment section keeps bringing me back.

Would you just shut the fuck up, Richie? You won't bid above 1500 on something, but you'll drop 7500 on blackjack hand and laugh about it? You're a fucking idiot. Why the fuck people come here and read your bullshit is beyond me. You need to get a clue, man. So does your boss at the paper. I've read the last of your bullshit. You fucking idiot.

If anyone drew any other conclusion than the blackjack money was fake, they have a serious reality problem. Of course it's reasonable to conclude open gambling was happening at the party! Sheesh. Obviously the commentors on this blog don't get to attend many parties that don't require you to bring your own six pack of Keystone Light.

It's not "piss-poor" writing. It's being a dumbass reader.

When you put a dollar sign in front of a fake figure it's piss-poor writing.
