New Yorkers need to brace for and must embrace the Super Bowl 

BY BRANDON STEINER 

New York--New York, New York, it's a helluva town, if I can make it here, I can make it anywhere! So, the songs go.  Yes, we are the capital of the world, the sports mecca, but we'd better brace ourselves if the Super Bowl is going to be a mega-hit that it ought to be! What? 

Yeah? It's going to be extremely difficult even under the best of conditions to pull it off, so we have to collectively embrace it or we are in for a black eye, if not worse. 

Hey, let's face it, we've never done this before. No World Cup, no Olympics, no track record. This isn't Times Square on New Year's Eve, let's not kid ourselves. We’ve never been infiltrated. We have to be at our best. The Super Bowl is our acid test. 

I know, we've hosted many World Series, as well as NBA and Stanley Cup championships.  But those events are series-long, and pale in comparison to a singular Super Bowl, when a half million visitors will converge on the Big Apple, particularly late in the week on Thursday, Friday and Saturdayleading up to the game. 

We need to swallow the pill of inconvenience, because there will be many. Our crowded subways will be more crowded; same for all mass transit, the buses and Metro-liners; hailing a cab more difficult; bumper-to-bumper traffic at its worst; airport delays for sure. 

No, it won't be easy. I'm actually nervous because unless we're all in, it will be problematic. This is my town, from the days of growing up in Brooklyn to today's partnerships with the Yankees, Knicks and Nets, and relationships with many New York champs like Eli, Messier, Jeter and Mariano. Our reputation is at stake more than anyone can imagine. This is not a self-serving message, it’s a major concern from a New York guy who has been around the block. We need to galvanize New Yorkers. 

Everyone needs to bite the bullet for the greater good, whether you are a football fan or not isn’t the issue. Stay away from midtown if at all possible. If you don’t have to be in the city, schedule those meetings for the week before or week after. Help a lost visitor with directions. Do your part! 

I’ve seen the good, the bad, and the ugly (remember Dallas and Atlanta!)The Super Bowl is an unbelievable opportunity to showcase our city. We think that everyone across the country and throughout the world knows, but a lot of people don’t know how great New York is, and that they can be safe and cool here. 

New Yorkers need to realize that this is great for your city besides the millions and millions of dollars of revenue. The showcase of the great time will motivate the visitors to return, but only if we put on a great show, and our attitudes are right. 

Coming to New York for a Super Bowl is a once-in-a-lifetime deal for a tourist. With ticket prices at upwards of $3,000 and hotel rooms through the roof, these are high level, decision-makers who will return with conventions, and other significant events, who will be back to spend money, if they have a good feeling about our city. 

It's up to you, New York, New York. 

Brandon Steiner a native New Yorker who is the CEO & Founder of Steiner Sports Marketing, which has relationships with over 2,000 athletes, and partnerships with pro and colleges franchises including the Yankees, Knicks and Nets.

Steiner Sports "Core four" event in the New york post

Mlb.com's coverage of the Core Four event

Steiner Sports Celebration of the core Four

New York- December 10

More than 600 avid Yankee fans attended the Core Four event presented by Steiner Sports at Cipriani Wall St last night. Fans listened with rapt attention all evening long as MC Brandon Steiner, the president of Steiner Sports, and the Core Four shared some of their favorite memories in an intimate setting. Also present at this once in a lifetime event were members of the 1977/78  World Series Championship team including Reggie Jackson, Lou Piniella, Bucky Dent, Goose Gossage, Graig Nettles, Roy White and Mike Torrez. Guests enjoyed a three course meal and got to hear Jorge Posada, Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter and Andy Pettitte all reminisce fondly on their time in pinstripes. 

Boxing legends “Iron” Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, “Sugar” Ray Leonard, Roberto Duran and Thomas “Hitman” Hearns – all who engaged in epic battles and storied rematches – will be back in main event status at the Steiner Sports Store at Roosevelt Field Mall (630 Old Country Road) in Garden City, Long Island sharing classic sweet science memories on Saturday afternoon, April 5.


The “Classic Quintet” will all be available to sign autographs, pose for photographs, and to meet & greet fans at the designated times below. Tickets, starting at $49, as well as VIP packages and memorabilia are all available. For tickets and more information call the Steiner Store at 516-739-0580 or 800-242-7139.


Holyfield and Tyson will renew their class, late nineties heavyweight rivalry from 12:00 noon to 1:30 PM,and will be available for photo opportunities and to sign gloves, trunks and other collectibles. The duo engaged in a pair of epics at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. In the first on November 9, 1996 Holyfield outmuscled Tyson to score one of the most monumental upsets in boxing history. Holyfield became the first heavyweight since Muhammad Ali to regain the heavyweight title twice. The rematch was one of boxing’s most bizarre encounters on June 28, 1997, and saw Tyson bite off a piece of Holyfield’s ear to be disqualified by referee Mills Lane.


Like Holyfield and Tyson, Sugar Ray Leonard (11:30 AM to 1:00 PM) and Roberto Duran (1:30-3:00 PM) battled in one of the most famous championship fights in boxing history. After Duran took the title from Leonard in a unanimous decision on June 20, 1980 in Montreal, a rematch was inevitable. Just five months later, on November 25 in New Orleans, Duran said “No Mas” and Leonard regained the belt. It gained its famous moniker at the end of the eighth round when Durán turned away from Leonard, towards the referee and quit by saying "No más." To this day, Duran says that stomach cramps. Leonard was the winner by a technical knockout at 2:44 of Round 8, regaining the WBC Welterweight Championship.Nine years later, Leonard again beat Duran in their third match up by unanimous decision on December 12, 1989, in a fight that didn’t have nearly the hoopla of the first two.


Leonard and Thomas “Hitman” Hearns (1:30-3:00 PM) likewise had classic encounters. They fought twice, once in 1981 and again in 1989, both are considered to be epics, both at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. In their first encounter on September 16, 1981, for the undisputed Welterweight championship, Leonard beat Hearns by TKO at 1:45 in the 14th round when the referee stopped the fight.


After almost eight years, the Leonard-Hearns rematch finally happened. It was promoted as "The War". Leonard (35-1 with 25 KOs) and Hearns (46-3 with 38 KOs) met on June 12, 1989 at Caesar's Palace in a scheduled twelve-rounder for the WBC & WBO super-middleweight titles. Though Hearns had Leonard on the canvas twice, the judges scored the fight a draw, with both boxers retaining their respective titles. The decision was soundly booed, as most felt that Hearns had won.


Hearns and Duran fought only once for the WBO Super Welterweight championship. That was a dominating performance by the Hitman, who dropped Duran twice in the first round. After nailing Duran with a devastating right to the jaw in the second round, Hearns stepped back and Duran fell face first to the canvas. The fight was over.​​
