Circus is about to start

NEW ORLEANS -- It is almost time for one of the year’s biggest spectacles.

Super Bowl media day will be starting shortly in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. According to the Super Bowl host committee, more than 5,000 media members have been credentialed for the event.

The San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens each will spend an hour meeting with media members from around the world. We’ll have live coverage with highlights and behind-the-scenes looks at the festivities.

I have some duties related to the 49ers and Ravens, but I also will be looking for anything related to the NFC South. There are bound to be some angles from within the division. One of the beauties of media day is that you never know who you might run into.
