Steve Smith Taking Mother’s Day To New Heights

From our friends at EBSL Sports:
New York Giants Pro Bowl Wide Receiver Steve Smith Takes Mother’s Day Gifts to New Heights
NFL Pro Bowler and USC Linebacker Brother Treat Mom to Luxury Flight on World’s Largest Airship
MOFFETT FIELD, Calif., May 7, 2010 – Even tough guys know better than to forget mom on Mother’s Day, which is why New York Giants Pro Bowl Wide Receiver Steve Smith decided to treat his mom to a luxury flight on the world’s largest airship this year. Thinking outside the Mother’s Day candy-box, Smith, and his brother Malcolm, who plays linebacker for the USC Trojans, will spend Sunday afternoon soaring high above Los Angeles with their mother, Audrey, aboard Airship Ventures’ Zeppelin Eureka.
Though both Smith sons are used to seeing blimps soar above the stadiums that they play football in, neither thought of flying in an airship until reading about the Zeppelin tours earlier this month. “I knew there was a Zeppelin in L.A. because of our mutual involvement with March of Dimes events last month, but I didn’t really know too much about it.  When I researched it, I knew this would be the perfect thing to do with my mom on Mother’s Day,” said Smith.
“When I told my mom about it she shared in on the excitement since cruising the skies of my hometown isn’t something we get to do every day,” added Smith.
Airship Ventures is offering Mother’s Day Flights starting at $199/person, plus taxes, from Long Beach, weather permitting. In addition to Airship Ventures traditional post-flight champagne toast, all moms who fly on Mother’s Day will receive a flower and chocolates in honor of the holiday.

Stretching 15-feet longer than a 747 and 50-feet longer than the largest blimp, Eureka is the world’s largest airship. One of only three Zeppelins currently operating in the world, the airship offers passengers spectacular 360-degree views of the sights on flightseeing tours above Los Angeles, San Francisco Bay, Silicon Valley, Monterey and San Diego.
