ONN – 21st Leigh Steinberg Super Bowl Party In Miami – Video Blog
Since Super Bowl LIV in Miami is fast approaching and this vlogger, me, Zennie Abraham, is set to attend The Leigh Steinberg Super Bowl Party there, I thought it was a good time to look back at the last Miami Super Bowl Party Leigh threw in South Florida – or at least the last one I attended.
In 2007, I had the honor and pleasure of attending Leigh Steinberg’s 21st Super Bowl Party in Miami (for Super Bowl 41, pitting the Indianapolis Colts vs. The Chicago Bears) and held at the Westin St. Francis Grand Floridian Yacht which is docked just off Ocean Avenue.
This, my fourth of Leigh’s Super Bowl parties I’ve attended, was the best. And this was due to the intimacy provided by the combination of the yacht and the grounds below. As a result, there was a lot of interaction rather than people sticking in their own groups and clicks. The video — as a result — reflects how people did relate to each other there.
It was a lot of fun. Stars? Well, I’m not the best at recognizing people, but I did talk a while with with Julian Jenkins of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Jack Del Rio, Head Coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars (not in video) and ESPN’s Woody Paige (in the video) and Tony Rially (not in the video as well as Billy Baldwin (Not in the video).
Finally, much of the video focuses on Al Samuels and Steve Fleming of NBC’s “Sports Action Team” and their segment filmed with Leigh Steinberg, and Bruce Perlmutter, the GM of the Tribeca / ESPN Sports Film Festival.
Note from Oakland News Now Technical: this video-blog post shows the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. The main system is a major part of Zennie62Media’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. There, an uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-owned social media pages. This part allows rapid conversion of youtube videos from any source channel (with permission and from Zennie62 on youtube) to Oakland News Now blog posts. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
