UPDATED, 4 pm CST:
NEW ORLEANS — No more hype. No more Harbaugh heart-tuggers. No more pregame expert analysis — a fancy name for guessing.
We’re now about two hours from kickoff of Super Bowl XLVII at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, and as you can see from my photo above, we’re up highhhhh, in the “aux box” — the auxiliary media box. That is, one section of upper-deck seats refitted to for media. Basically, every other row of seats gets a desk plopped on it.
A few Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers players are out warming up now.
No Ray Lewis as yet.
Ravens PK Justin Tucker warming up. The guy is a machine. Good from 26 … good from 41 (over the top of the uprights) … missed from 44 (left), rekicked and made … nailed a 47-yarder … 50-yarder into the net, from right hash … made 53-yarder from left hash … and then they got interrupted by Niners.
Both brothers chatted at midfield at 4:20 pm CST.
