Between working in San Francisco and Atlanta, I’ve covered six different Super Bowl teams, and I’ve lived in two different areas that have hosted Super Bowls. I’ve seen some bizarre things, man.
This doesn’t include the fact I’ve covered more than 30 Super Bowls out of the 52 overall.
Super Bowl 53 is next week here in Atlanta, but these things aren’t just about the game. There also about the week.
Super Bowl week hasn’t necessarily been kind to Atlanta. During the previous two times the city hosted the event in 1994 and 2000, life wasn’t exactly pretty for the NFL away from the game itself.
