Welcome to Media Day. Can I check your bag?

Media Day is about to start, which also means this is a test run for stadium operations at Raymond James Stadium, site of Sunday’s Super Bowl.

Things are highly organized and staffed, particularly by police and security. The media went through airport-like security lines, which were thorough but quick. Those people who had bags had to set them in a cordoned-off area, where dogs sniffed them.

There were no problems that I saw, and now hundreds of us are waiting to get into the bleachers, where players and coaches will be made available.

We were brought into entrances different than those for regular-season games. The reason, I was told, is to minimize obstacles since the NFL Experience is located near the regular media entry.

It’s about to be on.
