A true fan, he’ll be sharing his experience with us as he watches his 49ers take on the Ravens in the biggest game of the year. You can view part 1 here, part 2 here and part 3 here. Well New Orleans is buzzing, Thursday ended with fireworks and the unveiling of the numerals XVII in Super Bowl Boulevard (I’ll be visiting it tomorrow). In addition, the pavements are packed and the police presence has been upped. Volunteers are on most main intersections and are available to help give advice. They generally ask how you’re going, but one said, helpfully, “Hey, do you want a pen?” Having these volunteers enhances the experience for visitors and the volunteers. Earlier, a little worse for wear I went out to the convention centre and was part of the audience for Tuzon Latino VII. It’s an Hispanic channel who host an annual flag football game with former NFL players and Hispanic celebrities. I only knew one of them, the dog whisperer Cesar Millan. The players on show included Deion Sanders, Michael Irvin, Torrey Holt, Brian Westbrook, Jake Delhomme, Kordell Stewart, Derrick Brooks and Terrell Davis. Melvin Ingram and Cameron Jordan, current players with the Saints, were the coaches. It was great to see the guys playing, albeit for fun. We had been assigned teams to cheer for, mine had Stewart, Sanders and Davis, and unfortunately they sucked. We were given motivation to cheer because the winning team’s fan received a Saints mini-helmet signed by Jimmy Graham. Michael Irvin has had his critics, but the way he treated two young kids was terrific. He posed for a photo with them and ruffled their hair. His whole manner was top notch and the parents and kids loved it. In a stroke of luck, I walked past the 9ers hotel on the way back to the French quarter. The police had barricaded it off and it became obvious that the team would be coming out to go on the coaches to the training facility. There were many players I didn't see, but it was great to see the size of linemen like Alex Boone. The first three coaches left and I with several others waited and eventually we were rewarded with Jim Harbaugh, 9ers coach. Jim got a massive cheer and was about to board the coach when he started to engage with the crowd. He took his time shaking everyone’s hand, including mine. It was a magic moment. Tomorrow, I will be attending the NFL Experience and a party on a Bourbon St balcony.
