NEW ORLEANS, LA. - The city is ready.

One thing about New Orleans, tragedies aside, is it’s always ready for a party.

This is the American home of late night.

The town that invented overindulgence.

New Orleans is almost everything the NFL is: A good time, a little bit dirty, occasionally troubling, but full of food and music and energy and everything entertainment.

It may not be what it once was after all it has been through, but this is a comfort zone place for the Super Bowl.
