On February 1, 2009, I had the great fortune of attending Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa, Florida. Not only was it one of the most exciting games in Super Bowl history, but the game was played near my house and my all-time favorite team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, won the game in the closing seconds, 27-23.

Talk about a memorable night. That’s one box on my bucket list that I’m able to check off!

Adding to my experience was the amazing seat I had for the game. First level in Raymond James Stadium, right around the 50-yard-line. NBC had a block of tickets two rows in front of me, and their seats were filled with a number of TV stars. At halftime I got to meet Jimmy Fallon (
Late Night with Jimmy Fallon), Zachary Levi and Joshua Gomez (Chuck Bartowski and Morgan Grimes on Chuck), Rainn Wilson (Dwight Schrute on The Office), and Hayden Panettiere.

Okay, enough blabbing from me….
