Ever since compiling my story on the Amber Room at the Old National Centre, I've heard talk of a NFL awards night during the Super Bowl. Now, the event has been publicly announced. The NFL will present the inaugural NFL Honors Night on Super Bowl Eve (yes, that is now a thing). The event will be hosted by Alec Baldwin and include a musical performance by Lenny Kravitz.
Accompanied with a red carpet and broadcast live on NBC, this event honors the best in NFL football in 2011. The show is promised to be star-studded, already including appearances by Hall of Famers Jerry Rice, Barry Sanders and Steve Young. I already am looking forward to seeing hundreds of football players attempting to squeeze into the sometimes-tight seats at the Murat Theatre.
The NFL and Super Bowl Committee have been programming an interesting string of shows and events thus far, but make sure to stay tuned: We've just reached the tip of the iceberg so far with Super Bowl events. I just have one question: where will Tebowing fit in?
The broadcast begins at 8 p.m. on February 4th on NBC.
