Sounds like someone yearning for a hug.

The regular NFL thread is over 750 posts, and I think there's a decent chance that the Super Bowl will generate more than 250 more.

I'm psyched!

Enjoy.

You doing any of the NFL experience stuff beforehand?
It was decent, though quite crowded on Saturday last year in AZ.

Thanks.

First of all, my ticket is being UPS'd from LA, and it's currently stuck in Kentucky due to adverse weather. I leave Friday, so hopefully it arrives tomorrow. We'll see.

I think that I'll do some stuff on Saturday, like the NFL experience, sure. If it's too crowded, maybe I'll just skirt the crowds but try to take it all in as best can.

What we discovered last year was the NFL experience was open to anyone on the days leading up to game day, and only game ticket holders could go in on Sunday. I don't know if the same will be true in Tampa, it was directly adjacent to the stadium in Glendale and you actually entered through that area for security checks for the game. We did the NFL experience on Saturday and there were very long lines at most of the activities. Sunday there were not many lines.(We didn't bother and just headed in to the stadium to catch all the pregame festivities) Of course also on Sunday some things were not available such as ex players being available for pictures etc.

Thanks for the info. I suspect that I'll want to get into the Stadium as early as possible on Sunday, just to take it all in, so the NFL experience and whatnot will be a Saturday thing.

Also, and this might sound odd.....the winter has been brutal here in Chicago and just getting to spend time in the warm weather will make me happy....so, this is part Super Bowl trip, and part just get some sun trip.

We had the same outlook last year, Sunday was for the game and all that accompanied it.

Saturday was golf in the morning and NFL experience in the afternoon. It beat spending a February weekend in New England.

I'm hoping the Cardinals win it because I want Edge to get a Super Bowl ring.

Didn't Edge get one in 2002 after playing halftime? Or did Clayton steal his?

I think I read somewhere that the Colts gave James a ring for their super bowl win because he meant so much to them leading up to it.

So he's already got a ring, sort of.
