It begins…(video)

MIAMI, Fla-Super Bowl XLIV is set to kick-off as most of the civilized world is anxious with anticipation (Editor's Note: This story was written prior to kickoff, but the video upload took a little longer than expected).

It’s the Saints vs. the Colts from Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida to determine who will raise the 2010 Vince Lombardi Trophy in a little over three hours.

If you haven’t noticed it on television yet, the Who Dats are in full force and have already begun taking it to the next level.

Which shouldn’t come as a surprise after Saints fans turned Ocean Drive in South Beach into a makeshift Bourbon Street this week (trust me, it was legit).

The Big Questions for tonight:

1. Will Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney play? (Oh yeah)

2. Will it be Peyton Manning or Drew Brees coming out on top in a game that features two of the game’s best quarterbacks in the NFL? (Both will play well and as much as I hate to say it, I’m going with Manning, the Colts and laying the points).

3. Will Pete Townshend of “The Who” smash a guitar during tonight’s halftime show? (Take it to the bank that he will)

4. How long does it take to get from South Beach to Sun Life Stadium on Super Bowl Sunday?
Find out by watching the video I made while sitting in traffic.
