Which Former Bill Will Officiate Super Bowl XLVIII?


Referee Terry McAulay, who was the referee for two previous Super Bowls, will lead the seven-man crew of game officials selected to work Super Bowl XLVIII Sunday, Feb. 2 at MetLife Stadium, the NFL announced today.

The other members of the Super Bowl XLVIII officiating crew are Carl Paganelli (umpire), Jim Mello (head linesman), Tom Symonette (line judge), Scott Steenson (field judge), Dave Wyant (side judge) and Steve Freeman (back judge). The Super Bowl XLVIII officiating crew collectively has 110 years of NFL officiating experience and 76 combined playoff game assignments.

McAulay, in his 16th season as an NFL game official, entered the league in 1998 as a side judge and was promoted to referee in 2001. He has officiated 12 playoff games, including six conference championship games and Super Bowls XXXIX and XLIII.

Under the NFL officiating program's evaluation system, officials must be rated in the top tier at their position to be eligible for the Super Bowl. They must have at least five years of NFL experience and previous playoff assignments.

Earnie Frantz is the replay official. The replay assistant is Brian Matoren.

This will be Paganelli's fourth Super Bowl. He worked Super Bowl XXXIX with McAulay, XLI and XLVI. It will be Steenson's second Super Bowl (XXXI).

Freeman is a former NFL player. He played 12 seasons for the Bills and his final season in 1987 with the Vikings.

Here's a nice article on the Super Bowl Ring officials get, and what it means to work the game by Fox Sports Mike Pereira

Live Like a Jo Bro - And See The Big Game!

Kevin Jonas and his pregnant wife, Danielle, are renting their house out for the Super Bowl for $20,000 a night.  But it's not because they need the money - they've already moved into a bigger home. 

"I'm Kevin Jonas, you may know me from my recent TV show (Married to Jonas) with my wife Danielle,"
the post reads on Airbnb. "We are currently expecting our first baby girl and have moved out of our home to make room for our new family of three. But before we sold the house, we wanted to offer up the opportunity for both music and football fans to have the chance to stay there for the Super Bowl. And I'm even throwing in four tickets to the big game." The home is available from Jan. 28 through Feb. 9 and portion of the proceeds will go towards Jonas’ charity Change for Children.

On Demand Video: Vin Diesel Dances (Badly!) To "Dark Horse" & "Drunk In Love"

Vin Diesel is soooo happy that "Riddick" is the #1 DVD that he had to thank his fans by doing the white man’s dance! Watch for the break in the middle, and his thank you chat to fans. This isn't exactly flattering, but when you're Vin Diesel, you can get away with it.

New Music - After All by Michael Buble & Bryan Adams...


When I first mentioned Michael Buble's latest single to Rob Lucas, he was worried it was a remake of the sappy After All from the 80's (not sure which version - the Al Jarreau one or Peter Cetera / Cher duet).  No worries, this isn't either of those.

Michael Buble teams up with Bryan Adams (the Summer Of '69 guy) for this not too sappy or slow song...

Is it time to play in the garden yet?

I don't think I have ever felt air this cold.  Outside of a meat locker that is.  This is the time of year where seed catalogs arrive in the mail and I over order becasue the pictures look so pretty.  I always buy  a special variety of tomatoes called long keepers that you can store well into winter.  Then there are the sweet peas that you can plant early for some sign of life in the garden.  This year I'm ripping out a hedge and planting fig trees.  All I need is warm weather.  Guess I'll plant some seeds under grow lights to keep me going for now......
