Counting down the hours


MIAMI -- Looks like an absolutely gorgeous morning from my hotel window.

Walking down my hall a few minutes ago, I heard a voice from another room yelling something about Bobby Hebert (the former New Orleans quarterback) and then I heard a whole bunch of voices yelling "Who Dat." Sounds like at least one tailgate party has started and why not?

It’s Super Bowl Sunday for a team and fan base that’s never been to one. Might as well enjoy it.

Although the game is still a long way off, I’m starting to get ready. Our ESPN team bus is leaving for Sun Life Stadium at 12:30 p.m. ET because we’re anticipating heavy traffic and long security lines.

Once I get settled into the stadium, I’ll be back with pregame updates on the blog and we’ll also be chatting live during the game on NFL Nation Live.

I’ll be back in touch from Sun Life Stadium in a few hours.
