Gridiron Celebrity Hoops XIII : Dallas Edition

02.09.2011

Last week, Dallas was hit with the Icepocalypse. Seriously, everything was frozen for three days. Then, on Friday it snowed, and with what meteorologists estimated at 2-4 inches, we got more like 6-8 inches! And for people in Texas, that’s basically like having a blizzard. Everything just shuts down, schools close, UPS is rendered useless, and people go stir crazy.

Luckily, by Saturday afternoon, most of the snow (and more importantly ice) was melted and Cent and I were able to venture out of the house and attend the 13th Annual Gridiron Hoops game – a celebrity basketball game that happens during every SuperBowl weekend.

Along with fellow photographer Kelly Rucker, we were asked to take some photos of the event, and while I’m hardly a sports photographer, it was pretty fun. The game was help at Southern Methodist University’s Moody Coliseum and I think everyone in attendance was just happy to get out of their homes!

Okay, I have a confession to make. When Boris Kodjoe walked into the coliseum, I felt my stomach drop. Of the few celebrities that I’ve wanted to meet, he is certainly on the list! I can already hear Cent saying “Booooooooooo” for me writing this, but oh well. And I’m really sad his show Undercovers was canceled. And a photo with Jon Sprinkle – husband of Jenn Sprinkle of CRAVE coordinating awesomeness.

The Black Team won… I can’t remember if they were AFC or NFC.

I believe this kid’s name is DJ Baby Chino – and I heard that he’s in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the youngest DJ.
