INDIANAPOLIS (CBS) – With roughly 24 hours until Super Bowl XLVI, the masses have ascended on Indianapolis.
Let’s just hope the city can handle it.
Friday night, there was close to 500,000 people in town for the various parties, events and fan experiences. For a city whose population is under a million, it was a little much.
LMFAO performed downtown, causing a bit of a ruckus on the streets.
Police closed several streets and certain parts of the of the Super Bowl Village because it was so crowded. Fans had to take baby steps to get around, because there was just nowhere to go.
Early Friday, they announced the NFL Experience at the Indiana Convention Center had hit the 200,000 fan mark.
Pepsi, GQ, and Playboy were a few of the companies to throw parties on Friday. So of course that brought out the celebrities from Ne-Yo to Brooklyn Decker to JWOWW (did I spell that right?).
ESPN also had a party, riddled with sports stars and NFL players not in the Super Bowl. Steve Young, Terrell Owens, Cam Newton and Drew Brees all looked like they had a fun time.
The Patriots were lucky. They had an 11pm curfew on Friday night and were likely in bed dreaming of the Lombardi Trophy.
As for Saturday, they’ll take their team picture and then they’re on lock down until game time. Their hotel is a mile away from downtown, away from any distractions.
Tune in to Super Bowl XLVI between the Patriots and Giants on 98.5 The Sports Hub, the only place to hear the local call of the game. Pregame coverage begins Sunday, February 5 at noon.
