NEW ORLEANS -- I’m getting settled into what is a very quiet Superdome at the moment. But it’s not going to stay that way for long.
There are a few Giants out on the field warming up in shorts and t-shirts, but the gates haven’t opened yet. There was a very festive atmosphere outside as I walked in.
I’ll be back throughout the day with updates and observations from this game and I’ll do my best to keep an eye on the Carolina-Tampa Bay game on television. When I leave here tonight, I’ll head straight for the hotel to watch the Falcons and Bears and will provide some observations on that game.
