I have covered every Super Bowl since XIII in Miami in January of 1979, the “Jackie Smith game” in which the Steelers beat the Cowboys, 35-31. It occurred to me on my flight to New Orleans for Super Bowl XLVII that makes this my 35th consecutive Super Bowl, and round numbers are sometimes cool. So does that make me cool, experienced, accomplished, relevant, special, and meaningful or something else? For the most part, I think it just makes me old, but blessed with some great memories, and many, if not most of them, of New Orleans.
