The whirlwind of the Super Bowl here in Houston brought the city plenty of excitement and fun with all of the interactive activities, parties, celeb sightings, and more. Out of the many (emphasize “many”) events Houston Style covered, Antonio Brown’s ‘Celebrity Super Slam” was definitely one of the most memorable highlights.
