The Ravens’ Ray Lewis, front, talks to reporters at the Venue during the Moves Magazine Super Bowl Party on Wednesday. Lewis co-hosted the party with the Saints’ Reggie Bush.

CLEARWATER — Athletes and celebrities made their way down the red carpet for one of Super Bowl week's first big-name parties, the Moves Magazine Party.

The party, at the Venue, was hosted by Saints running back Reggie Bush and Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.

Despite his team falling one win short of the Super Bowl, Lewis smiled as he strolled along the red carpet. The two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year and Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl XXXV couldn't dodge questions about free agency.

"I came for my party," Lewis said, smiling.

"I don't know anything about free agency."

Guests who made their way down the red carpet early included Bush and girlfriend Kim Kardashian, Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney, Jets center Eric Mangold, Bucs cornerback Phillip Buchanon and Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard.
