Super Bowl all about the rings

NFL.com’s Gil Brandt is wearing his Super Bowl XII ring. That’s what today is all about: the rings.

It’s three-plus hours before kickoff, and fans are trickling into Raymond James Stadium.

Steelers fans are keeping it simple with a lot of black jerseys, mostly representing Ben Roethlisberger, Troy Polamalu and Heath Miller. There are a few LaMarr Woodley and James Harrison jerseys mixed in. Cardinals fans are a little more all over the board. Face painting appears to be popular in Arizona. I saw two fans with red suits, painted faces and Ronald McDonald-like red afros outside the stadium. It’s going to taint someone’s Super Bowl experience to sit behind them.

It’s starting to get cloudy over Tampa.

I’m wondering, what’s going to be the deal with the cannons on the pirate (errrr, Buccaneer) ship today? Are they going to shoot off when both teams score? Not at all? This is clearly important. Need to find the answer to that.
