Who's Ready for the Super Bowl?

Who's ready for Super Bowl? I know I'm ready to cheer on the Green Bay Packers. I remember when the Super Bowl was in Detroit. Because the tickets were so expensive, my best friend Yasmeen and I started looking for cheap opportunities to attend. At the time we were still students at the University of Michigan and one day while we were studying for finals in the library we saw a flyer posted that said "Workers Needed for Super Bowl." We jumped right on it! Out of the thousands of applicants and three long interviews with the NFL committee, we were fortunate enough to get an offer to work the VIP suites at the Super Bowl. I didn't get to really watch the game, but being present and feeling the energy was enough for us.
This year I was invited to watch Super Bowl XLV in person from the Pepsi suite, as Miss USA! Dreams do come true!
Kamie and I arrived in Dallas, Texas yesterday where the Super Bowl will take place. So far we have attended a Pepsi reception, a party hosted by ESPN and a charity event for children hosted by celebrity guests.
Walking the red carpets during the Super Bowl has been so exciting. However, it’s time to work on my speech for the Ronald Reagan Centennial Celebration which will take place tomorrow in Los Angeles. Then back to Dallas for the game on Sunday. Wow! I don't want all this excitement to end.
Have a great weekend everyone!
P.S. Go Packers:)
