Super Bowl, once in a Lifetime Experience
Super Bowl, once in a lifetime experience
By Bill Foster
With a Super Bowl so close to home, we had to get involved. At least a million other people thought so too. We learned what the NFL Experience was once we got to Dallas. It was like a giant fair building filled with anything and everything about football and the NFL.
This went on for five days at the Dallas Convention Center. We were invited to come and use our press pass. This helped us get past 100,000 people. Pepsi Cola drinks in a special cup were $5.
The Media Center was at the Sheraton hotel and ballrooms. We were there for Savor Dallas, so this helped us know where to go. Still we had to get a one day media pass to see where the radio and TV people were setup and the working press room. Both were huge, About two football fields each. Probably the biggest media coverage Texas has even seen. David Smoak, ESPN Central Texas, was broadcasting from there every day. Former football stars and football greats would come by for interviews. We rode the trolley to the convention center. Pretty neat and everyone was helpful.
We learned that another big news area was in Fort Worth at Sundance Square. ESPN was set up there. Probably another million there. A few pictures here and we were through with our NFL experience. The game was better enjoyed looking at our 50 inch TV at home.
