It's Super Bowl Opening Night! On the 50th anniversary of American sports' biggest event, what used to be a pack of dull writer types in a hotel ballroom will now be a red-carpet-ish media free-for-all.
Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos are representing the AFC in Super Bowl 50, and they'll have the very first Super Bowl Opening Night experience. Bleacher Report will take you there, live-blogging the NFL's coverage of traditional media, foreign media, comedians, entertainers, sightseers, costume-clad characters and ticket-buying fans asking questions of the AFC champions.
More than asking questions, though, they'll be making statements, prompting reactions, maybe even proposing marriage! Broncos players will be holding court, ready to say whatever's on their mind. Will anyone give the Carolina Panthers bulletin-board material?
The fun—or at the very least, the spectacle—begins at 8 pm ET; fans are already assembled outside the venue, and media are already jockeying for position around the players' podiums. Keep it here as Bleacher Report's live-blog brings you quotes, tweets, pictures and more from the very first Super Bowl Opening Night!
