Game Day morning

February 6th, 2011 at 10:39 am by under Super Bowl XLV

Well, game day is finally here and we’ve been live on the air since 7:00. That meant an early morning for us. Wake-up call came at 4:30. We then had to make the 25-minute drive to Arlington, where we parked at J. Gilligan’s (the bar that held the pep rally yesterday) and took a shuttle over to the stadium.

It was a jam-packed extended version of Good Day Wisconsin form Cowboys Stadium. Rachel Manek acted as an anchor from the field, and she was joined by Mark Leland, Laura Smith, Paige Pearson, Drew Smith, Johnnie Gray and yours truly. Plus, Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt stopped by for a chat. We had a lot of fun waking people up this morning with our stories from North Texas.

And we also got to see a beautiful sunrise (there’s a picture of it in my last post). It was chilly this morning, as you’d expect, but now the sun is out and it’s quite pleasant. I’d say it’s around 50 degrees.

Right now, Drew and Johnnie are wrapping up their pre-game show, then we turn it over to FOX for the national shows that lead up to the game. We’re just a few hours away now!
