The fifth annual Celebrity Beach Bowl on Saturday (Feb. 5) wasn’t all that beachy, and not just because it was played in landlocked Dallas.
The lack of nearby water wasn’t the issue — because sand can be imported anywhere. It was more the fact that the temperature was less than 50 degrees at kickoff time and that the game was played inside a heated tent. The chilly weather probably explains “Glee” star Chord Overstreet‘s choice of warmup attire.
Overstreet lost the coat once the game started, joining the likes of Matthew Bomer, Hayden Panettiere, Josh Duhamel, Marisa Miller, Jessica Lowndes, Chace Crawford, Jessica Szohr and Joe Manganiello on the sand. NFL quarterbacks Eli Manning and Colt McCoy served as coaches for the two teams, while “Glee’s” Matthew Morrison and New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez were their celebrity assistant coaches.
Miller, the MVP of last year’s Beach Bowl, brought her game again, showing “United States of Tara’s” Brie Larson how to throw the rock.
“White Collar” star Bomer also got in on the action.
After the game, the two teams cleared out to make room for a concert by Maroon 5. And presumably everybody stayed warm.
