I’m blogging with my laptop resting on the back seat of a golf cart outside Raymond James Stadium, which is a first. I needed a moment to collect my blogging thoughts, with the NFL tailgate party area looming ahead.
Standing in the tunnel where the Steelers pass through on their way to field, I couldn’t help but notice how creepy their mascot, Steely McBeam, is. Not cute, cuddly or goofy in any way … what fun is that? Just creepy. Scares-little-kids-type creepy. Those within earshot of me agreed.
Not more than five seconds later, actress Alyssa Milano caught my eye. And then — this is no joke — gave me a casual but flirty look. And just to make sure I was paying attention (which I was, by the way), she did it again. I can’t remember what my reaction was or if I smiled or anything. I’m caught a bit off guard by this development but had to share, as this is truly part of sharing the Super Bowl experience with you.
Blog on, I say. Blog on.
