Dennis McCarthy, the Daily News' columnist, attended a Super Bowl party in Encino with Gov. Schwarzenegger and the ex, Gray Davis, along with Mayor Hahn, Chief Bratton and a bunch of other local poobahs. Arnold and Gray joked with each other, and the governor was diplomatic about who he favored in the game:
"I don't care," he said. "When you get to this level, you don't care who wins."
Dr. Gary Gitnick, chief of the Division of Digestive Diseases at UCLA, has thrown the party for 18 years.
