Here's your Friday morning Super Bowl update, live from the Neighborhood of Steven's Forest in the Village of Oakland Mills!
Happy last Purple Friday of the season, people!!! Time for Ravens Nation to boast its pride in the hometown team. This is going to be an epic weekend.
Meanwhile, down in N'orleans....
The Super Bowl Breakfast commences at 9am local time at Loyola University (of New Orleans, n ot Maryland, folks)
At 11am the Super Bowl Celebrity Golf Classic, benefitting the NFL Foundation, tees off. If anyone can tell me that Alice Cooper is in, get me a chartered jet immediately!
If you're looking to pick up a ticket for the game for less than $5000, you can go to the official NFL ticket exchange at the Sheraton Hotel on 500 Canal St. Because all of those unofficial ticket exchanges are just so unseemly.
If you'd like to hobnob with still more celebrities, retired Kansas City Chiefs tackle Willie Roaf and Major League Baseball's Torii Hunter are hosting the official "Big Easy Super Lounge" at 449 Barracks St. And you can top off the day by attending a Hurricane Sandy relief concert, hosted by New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, and presented by Verizon. Because one sponsor is simply not enough for this huge an event!
Yesiree Bob, business is picking up as the Big Day of the Big game draws nearer!
