Come chat with us in a few hours

MIAMI -- As you can see from the award-winning photograph in the post below, we ESPN.com bloggers arrived at Sun Life Stadium with a few minutes to spare before Super Bowl XLIV. The primary purpose of posting the shot is to rub it in for those of you who are snowbound or otherwise stuck in weather that is at least somewhat less ideal than what we’ve got here. (Sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-60’s.)

A few words about the plan for today. I’ll pop on the blog as warranted during the afternoon, and then at 5:30 p.m. ET I’ll be moving over to our NFL Nation Live in-game chat thingee. Please join me there.

I’m expecting to write a New Orleans-themed post after the game, which will naturally show up here on the NFC North blog.

Starting Monday we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled programming.
