SB Nation has arrived in South Florida for Super Bowl XLIV. Currently, we're stationed in the media center dubbed "Radio Row". Booths, on-site radio stations and television cameras are dominating the scene. Just about every major media outlet is represented in some fashion down here.
It's good to know SB Nation has joined that crowd.
The weather is getting off to a rough start. It's pouring down rain but I'm not complaining. The temperature is still in the high 60s and the clock says AM.
A few sights and sounds as I walked in:
- Peter King of Sports Illustrated joined the Sirius NFL Radio guys for some Super Bowl week chatter. Mr. King isn't afraid to let known his Boston Red Sox preference. He's sporting some Sox gear.
- Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com chatting it up with a few media folks.
Tiki Barber is hanging around the media center as well. Wait. Maybe that's Ronde Barber.
- Media folks reacting to the recent news that the Baltimore Ravens hired former Washington Redskins head coach Jim Zorn. Apparently they like the hire.
- Good looking women. Lots of 'em.
We're off to some press conferences detailing the plans for the week. Expect plenty of commentary, photos and player quotes.
