OK. After covering more than 30 Super Bowls, I never had this happen. I was the first media person to get his/her credential. Literally!
When I arrived here at the Georgia World Congress Center Sunday at 1:55 PM, NFL officials were just opening up the place for the thousands of reporters who will come to this event from around the world.
Nobody else was here!
So I had an exclusive run of the place, and this is what it looked like.
Trust me. That will change in a hurry long before the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots land in town later this evening for next Sunday’s rather large event here in Atlanta at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
