FROM TOUCHDOWNS TO STRIKES: THE MAYO BOWL

The New England Patriots might be superstars on the field this year, but the work they do off the field is truly inspirational. In particular, Jerod Mayo’s charity bowling event for the Boston Medical Center showcases the great support the players have for each other and the community.

So you can understand why were so excited to be the videographers for the event. We were ready and set up well before the red carpet started, which started a long wait for the excitement to begin!

The carpet was quickly a buzz when Jerod Mayo and his family showed up. We were fortunate enough to get the exclusive spot right by the door and got the chance to talk to many players including Malcolm Butler, Nate Solder, Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman!

Kim Zyotti, the owner of Blue Sky Entertainment and the person who helped to make the whole event happen also took the time to talk to us about the charity and all the good it’s done for the community. Over the last 6 years, the annual event has helped to raise over one million dollars for the Boston Medical Center!screen-shot-2015-10-01-at-12-39-20-pm1

There was even a back door entrance from Tom Brady! While he managed to sneak by our red carpet interviews, our own Michael Indresano got the chance to say a quick hello.

Then it was time for the main event: bowling! Mayo, his family, and other Patriots players bowled alongside teams of fans.

Julian Edelman celebrates a bowling victory in a slightly more reserved manner than on the field.

Although he was focused on bowling strikes, Edelman also managed to spare a moment to talk with our production team!

There was also a pool tournament in a second room, where a select few got the chance to shoot pool with players, including Nate Solder or Sebastian Vollmer.

Last up was the auction, which brought “the Chandlers” together to help get the crowd excited and bidding high!
