5TH ANNUAL FASHION & FOOTBALL NFL DRAFT GALA Presented by EREDI PISANO and AUDI of America.

The 2012 NFL Draft concluded this past weekend. It is a yearly spectacle to watch if you’re a football fan. I make it a yearly tradition to do my fair share of scouting and mock drafts. One of the exciting aspects of the draft other than getting drafted by a professional sports team happens to be some of the lavish events that take place. The 5th Annual Fashion & Football NFL Draft Gala just so happened to be one of  these events you couldn’t miss. It all took place on April 24, 2012 at Audi Forum in New York City. All of the athletes and celebs involved modeled outfits by Italian clothing company, Eredi Pisano. I will be looking forward to the 6th Annual  Fashion & Football NFL Draft Gala.

Blended Entertainment “I’m Back”

Yes it’s true. I failed to blog not only about, but during my vacation to Florida. I enjoyed myself but now it’s back to work. We last left off with the All Star Weekend interview, so instead of covering some of what has happened in depth, we’ll go down through a quick rundown of some of the things that have happened.

  • The NFL is still in lockout mode which is a shame.
  • The NBA has since followed suit into lockout mode which is leaning towards being close to if not a season ending lockout.
  • Wladimir Klitschko defeated “trash talker” David Haye in a lopsided unanimous decision.
  • Cars 2, sequel to 2006’s hit movie Cars opened up to over $66 million in its’ opening weekend.
  • Transformers 3 just wrapped up its’ opening weekend bringing in over $400 million worldwide.
  • Maria Shriver officially filed the necessary divorce papers. I wonder when will see Arnold again.
  •  Novak Djokovic and Petra Kvitova won the Wimbledon Grand Slam this year, with Novak defeating Nadal and Kvitova defeating Maria Sharapova
  • Last but not least, Charlie Sheen will be the next guy to be roasted this September on Comedy Central. This will be interesting to see. Two and a Half Men, with Ashton Kutcher commences an hour earlier on that same night.

This is not everything  but just a tip of the iceberg of what happened while I was away on vacation.

Hines and dance partner Kym

Congratulations to Pittsburgh Steelers Wide Receiver, Hines Ward for winning this season of DWTS. Hines won it with his dance partner, Kym Johnson. The current NFL Lockout did not discourage Hines Ward and neither did the neck injury that Kym suffered almost two weeks ago. Disney’s own Chelsea Kane came in third as Kirstie Alley took second. Here at Blended Entertainment, we congratulate all of them on a successful season that should benefit them all in their future endeavors.
