Let’s for a second forget about Christina Aguilera flubbing the national anthem on Super Bowl Sunday, and focus on Hayden Panettiere here, at the 5th Annual Beach Bowl held at Victory Park, in Dallas, Texas. By the looks of her expression, one would think she screwed up majorly, right? Not so much, because she won the Most Inspirational Player at the celebrity heavy event revealing, “I won an award – for football. It has to be because the ball hit me in the face.” Will wonders ever cease.
Held one day before the Super Bowl, this years beachy ball game featured Team Palladia with the likes of Josh Duhamel and Joe Manganiello and assistant coach, Matthew Morrison, proving brawn really doesn’t always come up trumps. Beauty either, because they had last years MVP, Marissa Miller, too. They lost to Team Spike that had Panettiere, Jerry Ferrara (who won Most Valuable Player), Jessica Szhor and Chace Crawford. But getting back to this picture, we’re guessing someone clicked right before that ball smacked Hayden in the face.
