In conjunction with Super Bowl XLV, the NFL Experience came to the Dallas Convention Center in downtown Dallas.
After a week of freakishly cold, icy weather, the sun popped through on Saturday, melting away most of the ice and much of the anxiety of NFL fans.
Saturday night, they came in droves to experience the wonder that is NFL football.
The highlight of the evening was the Premiere League flag football game put on by the NFL Players Association.
The game featured former NFL players and celebrities.
Among the stars on a star-studded field were former Super Bowl champions like Derrick Brooks, Roger Craig and Brad Johnson; former Pro Bowlers like Jamal Anderson, Jeff Blake and Lorenzo Neal; and celebrities like Morris Chestnut, Josh Henderson, Vivica A. Fox and Jermaine Dupri.
Kenny Mayne of ESPN SportsCenter fame even played backup quarterback to Brad Johnson. Mayne connected on some nice passes and didn't look at all like an AARP card holder.
Thanks to the good work of the NFLPA crew, this Bleacher Reporter was given sideline access and scored a number of exclusive interviews.
