Published

on

With the Pro Bowl and the festivities surrounding it in the rear-view mirror, it’s finally Super Bowl week. The Los Angeles Rams will face the New England Patriots from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Ga. on Sunday, but before that, there are a slew of events for those who will be hanging around the city as the championship game descends upon it.

Before the big game kicks off on Feb. 3, we here at Prestige run through the biggest events the NFL, Super Bowl Host Committee and Atlanta are putting on.

Jan. 26 – Feb. 2nd

Super Bowl Experience: The yearly “interactive theme park” will return, featuring tons of events and festivities for fans attending the game or simply in Atlanta for everything surrounding the game. There will be youth football clinics, player autograph sessions and much more throughout the week.

Super Bowl LIVE: Similar to the above, Super Bowl LIVE is the free-to-the-public “fan village,” which is usually decorated and themes around the host city, celebrating its culture, music and more.

Jan. 28 – Feb. 1

Fan Gallery: Ever wonder what us media folks are up to leading up to the game? The Fan Gallery is more or less a way to soak up all the frenzy and hype leading up to the big game, and not much else.

Jan. 28

Super Bowl Opening Night: This is the national “kickoff” for Super Bowl festivities. This event includes much of the media day schedule, with players and coached speaking in press conferences prior to the big game.

Jan. 31

Walter Payton Man of the Year Legacy Reception: It’s the second annual iteration of this event, which features past Man of the Year winners and 2018 nominees from each tea. It includes a cocktail reception, dinner and a silent auction.

20th Annual Super Bowl Gospel Celebration: If gospel is your thing, well look no further than this.

Super Bowl Music Fest EA Sports Bowl feat. Ludacris, Migos and more: Well duh, it’s a concert!

Feb. 1

24th Annual Kickoff to Rebuild:

Super Bowl Music Fest – Aerosmith & Post Malone: More music! This time without EA Sports. 

Feb. 2

Super Bowl Breakfast: This event has been going on since the late 80s, as fans mingle with some of the sport’s biggest names over a breakfast. The Bart Starr Award is also given out at this event.

Taste of the NFL | Party with a Purpose: Another food-driven event — which I’m totally fine with — this one featuring some of the top chefs in America, meet-and-greets, more NFL players and all that good stuff.

Super Bowl Music Fest — Super Bowl Eve feat. Bruno Mars and Cardi B: The finale of the three music concerts will take place on Super Bowl eve.

NFL Honors: This event is closed to the public, but the two-hour prime time awards special will air beginning at 9 p.m. ET on CBS, and will feature all of the biggest yearly awards being handed out by the NFL.

Feb. 3

Game Day Fan Plaza: Pep squads, drumlines, photo opps, NFL shops and all those goodies await after clearing security on game day.

Super Bowl LIII: The Rams are playing the Patriots, if you didn’t know.

Black Teenager Attacked by Corrections Deputy in Florida, Investigation Underway

Published

on

A Florida corrections deputy has been placed on leave after going on the attack against a 17-year-old at a juvenile center … and it’s all on video.

The teenager, Terrance Devon Reed III, was taken to the hospital after the violent altercation with Sarasota County Deputy Neil Pizzo last week. The surveillance footage shows Reed sitting on a bench with his arms tucked in his shirt when Pizzo marches toward him.

As Reed stands up and takes his arms out, the deputy immediately goes for his throat. A struggle ensues before Pizzo throws Reed to the ground, but at no point does the teenager appear to fight back.

Another deputy jumps in to try to wrangle Reed’s feet, and that’s when Pizzo strikes the teen on the back of the head multiple times. Reed’s then cuffed and helped to his feet … but not before suffering abrasions to his head.

The altercation reportedly began after Reed — who was previously arrested and charged with contempt of court, probation violations and cocaine possession — became uncooperative in a police lineup.

That, of course, doesn’t justify the violence by the deputy, and Sheriff Tom Knight says he’s disappointed in what he saw and Pizzo’s failure to de-escalate the situation.

Knight says he placed the deputy on administrative duty while an internal investigation is conducted.

Tamar Braxton Boyfriend Files A Restraining Order Indicating Domestic

Published

on

Tamar Braxton boyfriend is running to court asking for protection against her in what he describes as a domestic violence situation.

The singer’s BF, David Adefeso, filed for a restraining order Tuesday in L.A. seeking to prevent Domestic Violence and he’s asking a judge to grant him one against Tamar. For now, it’s unclear what he’s alleging she might’ve done.

It doesn’t look like the court has approved his request just yet  

At any rate, it’s another sign that things have been volatile lately in her life — especially as it pertains to David. Remember, he’s the one who called 911 not too long ago saying Tamar was threatening to kill herself. He also mentioned her WeTV beef to cops at the time.

Also keep in mind … family sources connected to Tamar have told us they believe she’s changed since getting with him — claiming her mood seems to align with his. We’ve also been told that David has come off as controlling in Tamar’s reality show, and that he’s been quite involved in her business decisions of late.

This continues to be a developing story…..

Bodies of US Couple Found at Bottom of Well in Mexico

The bodies of a missing US couple have been found at the bottom of a well in Mexico.

Ian Hirschsohn, 78 and his 73-year-old wife Kathy Harvey had been missing since August 31, when they were supposed to return home to San Diego from a trip across the border.

Their abandoned car was found in Ensenada, just 90 minutes from the US border, last week.

Investigators then made the grim discovery on Thursday in an unpopulated area just south of the tourist hotspot.

The bodies were recovered over the weekend; San Diego police confirmed their identities, CBS8 reported.

Family members said the couple had been staying at a rented house in El Socorrito, about 200 miles south of the border, a town they frequented over the past 35 years.

Kathy texted her son Robert on August 28 to say they were going to either explore a gold mine or visit a beach; however the family lost contact with them on August 31.

After reporting them missing, the Consulate General in Tijuana finally informed the family the couple’s Toyota Land Cruiser had been found in Ensenada.

“She was really enjoying retirement and had multiple groups of friends,” Robert told the site. “She loved walking and traveling.  She had a huge bucket list of where she wanted to go.”

An investigation is now underway. The cause of deaths has not been revealed, nor has a motive, but investigators suspect foul play.
