Taking place on February 29-March 2 2008, ESPN The Weekend features live ESPN telecasts, conversations and interactions with star professional athletes, celebrity motorcades and an interactive zone where fans can step right in and play some of their favorite sports on-site. Dozens of well-known athletes highlight the event throughout the weekend, and this event is like a non-stop SportsCenter highlight reel for every sports lover. Last year, celebrities such as Dwight Howard from the NBA, Ben Roethlisberger, Drew Brees and Adam Vinatieri from the NFL and several MLB stars were in attendance. The NFL and MLB by far have the biggest number of stars there, as it is there off-season.
At the celebrity motorcades and conversations, these stars will take center stage right in front of Sorcerer Mickey's hat. Here guests in the audience will ask questions to these stars before they drive off in a celebrity motorcade down Hollywood Boulevard. Similar to this is the Inside ESPN - Live on Stage presentation inside the theater to the right of the big hat. Here, guests will also line up to ask questions to the stars, giving fans the opportunity to see these world-class athletes in a whole new light.
The Disney-MGM Studios also has an interactive sports zone set up near the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Featuring Aerosmith, which gives fans the opportunity to shoot hoops, swing a golf club or even mingle with some of these high profile athletes before getting behind the desk and anchoring your own SportsCenter highlight reel. And speaking of SportsCenter, don't forget that the show broadcasts live from the Disney-MGM Studios live several times per day - so get ready for your close-up!
All of this excitement at ESPN The Weekend can be brought to you at a discounted price if you purchase your tickets here at DWTickets.com. These tickets are such a good deal, you could easily call them a slam dunk!
