Tuesday before the Superbowl

The Tuesday before the Superbowl has never been the same since 2005. That was the day a love story began.....

It was a day I was really looking forward to because it was Media Day. I was able to go even though I wasn't assigned a specific story to work on. Everyone wants to go because it has turned into such a spectacle over the years.
The only Eagle I talked to was Derrick Burgess because he went to Ole Miss. When the Patriots came out, I tried to get close to to Tom Brady's podium and the view was well worth it. I also got to see Mike and Mike from ESPN eat lunch which was a big deal at the time because I was obsessed with their show.
There was also a media party that evening at TPC Sawgrass. None of my co-workers seemed to be too excited about it but I had made my friends take a pact that we were going out EVERY night during Superbowl week no matter what!! When I got there, a couple co-workers were there so I chatted with them for a little bit. There was a HUGE food spread and a giant cake but most important..... A CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN!! I called Maria and Allison immediately and told them they had to get out to Sawgrass right away. So while I waited for them I feasted from the FOUNTAIN and watched NFL mascots dance to Hootie and the Blowfish. (The REAL Hootie, not just a DJ.) So they came and feasted at the fountain too and then it was time to go.

Okay, okay enough background, onto the love story.....

We were standing outside of the tent overlooking the famous 17th Island green talking to several different people and I remember one of them was a PR guy from the 49ers so naturally as a 49er fan I was extra chatty and flirty. Then a guy came up to me and said, "I just wanted to tell you that you have a beautiful smile" but then he walked away.....
