Alex Bennett and Coach Duggs Make Their Fighting Debuts In Rough N' Rowdy 18 — Friday 8PM ETBUY NOW

I Went To Mike Ditka & Ron Jaworski's Cigar Party & Only Alienated A Few People (I Hope)

This past week I was in Atlanta as the city prepared to host tonight’s Super Bowl LIII. It’s no secret that I’m less of a football guy & more of an ‘explore the city, get the vibe’ type of lady, but I jumped at the chance to attend the annual ‘Ditka & Jaws: Cigars With The Stars‘ event.

Why?

1) Because it was probably the best chance I’d ever have to say “Da Bears! heyyyo! ha ha!” right at Ditka himself, as though no one has ever done that before, and 2) the event benefited the After The Impact Fund, which facilitates comprehensive treatment & provides a support network for military veterans, professional athletes and their families.

When I packed for the trip I genuinely thought I’d be living on the bus like weird troll & thus, didn’t anticipate going to any events… so it was a little rough rolling into the party with a Canadian tuxedo on. Still, I’d hoped maybe I’d get the invite beyond the red carpet & into a land of cigars, whisky & fine foods. Spoiler alert: That did not happen & I wound up rippin’ cigs out front (which is obviously more my speed anyways).

But that’s ok – everyone I spoke with from NFL players to vets to the staff behind the scenes was beyond nice (despite my lack of football knowledge) & had great senses of humor. I hope…

Plus, the party was for a fantastic cause & I got to connect with some impressive veterans doing great things for our community (and who we hope to have on ZeroBlog30 in the coming months). All in all, A+++ event & a win/win.

As for the Super Bowl itself, I’m sitting here in my Eagles sweatshirt wondering if there’s anyway we could get lucky and see a Rams/Patriots lose/lose.
