Super Bowl XLVII schedule: Week of festivities kicks off with media day

Scott Halleran

The Super Bowl is more than just a game. It is an event, chock full with more unnecessary extravagances than one can possibly imagine. Check out the schedule of festivities to see what New Orleans has in store.

By now you -- a probably-American sports fan -- are well aware that the Super Bowl is more than just a game. It is an event, used as a massive advertising platform for big companies and a boon to the local economy. It's utterly overwhelming, and even more so for those actually at the game, which will be in New Orleans this year.

The craziness begins with media day on Jan. 29, when players and coaches are grilled in front of ever-growing swarms of media and fans. Other events include the Legends for Charity dinner on Jan. 31, which will honor Archie Manning with the Pat Summerall Award, and the Super Saturday of Service, an event held the day before the big game as a service to youth in the city.
