The Big Game through the eyes of the Greenwich Post

Updated: Sunday, Feb. 2 at 5:44 p.m.: While players are going through final preparations on the turf at Met Life, I’ve been able to meet several nice people in press row. I have been chatting with Sam Adams, who works for KHQ-TV in Spokane, Wash. and he does a great job. Check out his twitter feed at @SWXSamAdams. I also heard rumors that the Greenwich Post has made its way to Washington, courtesy of Mr. Adams.

Updated: Sunday, Feb.2 at 5:15 p.m.: We are inching our way to the start of Super Bowl 48 at Met Life Stadium. The crowd is quickly filing in and the teams just finished their walk-through. I haven’t been able to update much and that’s due to heat…yup, heat. I am sitting 41 rows up from the Seattle end zone and there are heat lamps throughout the auxiliary press section. That’s great, however it feels like I am at South Beach. Don’t be surprised if you see me in Greenwich and I got a wicked sub burn. Holy heatlamps, Batman. Any ways, due to the extreme heat, my iPad actually shut down on me and needed to cool down. Ugh!

Updated: Sunday, Feb. 2 at 2:45 p.m.: I’m in Met Life Stadium and WOW. It’s gorgeous here. After the 20 minute bus ride to the stadium and going through countless security, I am at Section 101, waiting for the game.

Everybody here is in final prep mode…they are putting the final touches on the Super Bowl logo that is on the 25-yard lines. Check out the @greenwichpost for some photos of the stadium. I’ll be back soon.

Updated Sunday, Feb. 2 at 12:15 p.m.: It’s the calm before the storm. I am sitting in a coffee shop in Midtown Manhattan, enjoying a mighty fine iced coffee, prepping for one of the bigger events that I have been privileged to cover.

My day started at 7 a.m., as I said my good-byes to my wife and twin boys and started my journey to the Sheraton Times Square, home of everything that has to do with media for the Super Bowl. Walking the streets from Grand Central Station to the hotel, I was greeted with one or two Denver fans and a plethora of Seahawks fans showing their love for their team.

By 10 a.m. I was in he hotel and ushered to the accreditation room, where I showed my identification and press pass. Two minutes later, I was handed an envelop with my press pass and seating location included.

Yup, this is now real. I am heading to the Super Bowl…the Big Game…one of the biggest sporting events on the planet! Uhm, wow.

I will be talking about my experience throughout the day, from what is happening on the field and what is going on behind the scenes. Check our twitter page at @Greenwichpost for photos and other posts from the stadium. Also, I want to hear from Greenwich residents if you’re at the game. Tweet @Greenwichpost and share your experience with me.

Next stop, the shuttle to Met Life Stadium!
