Leigh Steinberg has plenty of reason to celebrate during his upcoming Super Bowl Party in Dallas. It's Super Bowl XLV, but for the Newport Beach resident whose fame came as a sports agent, it's Steinberg Party XXV.
Because his party is in its 25th year, Steinberg is doing his best to make it memorable. His parties have been known for their extravagance and attention to charities. He wants to turn it up a notch.
Amid all the fun, which he often refers to as, "a three-ring circus," Steinberg will honor his friend, Gabrielle Giffords, the U.S. Rep. who is recovering from a gunshot wound to the head suffered during a shooting at a grocery store in Tucson, Ariz. Jan. 8.
Giffords has been seen at past Steinberg parties. She would have been there this year, as she helped Steinberg provide a live video hook-up with U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. Current and former pro athletes in attendance at the party will be set up to talk to the troops. Steinberg's connection to Giffords was recently featured by USA Today.
