ENROUTE TO NEW YORK –When it comes to the lowdown on the Super Bowl where else would you turn but – golferswest.com.
Super Bowl XLVIII is Sunday in New Jersey (west New York) with two Western teams involved, the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks. So, with our site based in the West, namely Seattle, it’s our duty to represent.
Bob Sherwin, who has covered three Super Bowls as a newspaper reporter, is going for the first time as a fan. He’ll provide insights all week on the New York/New Jersey scene.
Beginning Wednesday, Sherwin will give you inside information, but outside information. Cold, hard facts for what is shaping up to be the coldest Super Bowl in history. He’s not covering the game as a reporter but as an observer, albeit one with a view through a Seahawk prism. He has lived in Seattle for 29 years, working for the Seattle Times for 20 of those years. Over the years, he has been to a few Hawks games but this would be the first time he would allow himself to be subjective, a fan, a 12th Man.
He’s also taking the novel approach of paying for his tickets, which could get him banished from any media-linked organization. He could buying a entire season-ticket plan for what he paid for one game, 3000 miles from Seattle.
He and his daughter Mary, an aspiring dancer who lives in the lower West side in New York City, will bounce around the city all week. She knows the restaurants where the locals eat. She knows where the cool neighborhoods are with great bars, like a pair of Seahawk-fan taverns. She also knows what’s happening this week in terms of concerts, plays, shows and Super Bowl events. She’ll be our director of activities.
It’s all part of golferswest.com’s effort (where else?) to provide some insight to what those attending the game are going through, as well as give you some tourist tips into Manhattan in case you might be heading there one day.
