I'm from Chicago." Also showing team spirit: Jermaine Dupri and Taye Diggs.

The swanky hotel was transformed into the Hotel de Maxim, where guests downed Absolut cocktails and played with fake money at the Borgata Casino. Though many celebs – including Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo – stayed holed up in the VIP area, David Spade and Ryan Cabrera mingled in the crowd.

Mark Wahlberg, hosting his own private party at INK Boutique Nightclub in South Beach on Friday. "Kanye West is here, and I saw Pharrell out walking today," Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Chris Simms told us. "But I'm most excited to meet Mark Wahlberg. Extremely excited. He's pretty big-time between (producing) Entourage and (starring in) The Departed. He's extremely hot right now." And the host was extremely flattered. "These guys want to meet me?" said Wahlberg, whose bash was benefiting his Youth Foundation. "That's pretty cool. All I ever wanted to do was be a professional athlete, so to get that kind of love is very nice."

The actress gushed about Indianapolis Colts quarterback – and Super Bowl MVP – Peyton Manning ("I met him once and he was a very nice guy," she told us) and chatted about her new women's baseball clothing line, which is set to be released on baseball's opening day.
