      Despite Snoop’s current legal woes (he pleaded innocent to charges of deadly weapons possession after he was stopped by airport security with what they said was a collapsible baton in his luggage), the rapper is still planning to host his annual Snoop Bowl in Miami during Super Bowl weekend. Snoop Bowl III will feature California’s Snoop Dogg All-Stars coached by Snoop against an All-Star South Florida team coached by Oakland Raider Zach Crockett, his brother, former Minnesota Viking, Henri Crockett and Green Bay Packer Al Harris.

      "This game is not only about working with the kids through football, and helping them learn all of the positive values that come with it, but it’s a way for the kids to see a different part of the country and to meet their peers from other places who are just like them," commented Snoop Dogg. "This game is all about the kids and making sure they know that we care and want to see them succeed both on the field and off."

      The game will take place on February 3 at the Orange Bowl Stadium in Miami and presented by Amp’d Mobile. Last year’s Snoop Bowl II entertained over 20,000 fans and raised more than $50,000 in charities. Snoop Dogg’s All-Stars won 31-6 over Detroit’s PAL All-Stars.
