All the stars are out this week in New Orleans for the Super Bowl. Stroll through the French Quarter and you’re sure to see current and former NFL players, familiar faces from stage and screen (this intrepid writer spotted Neil Patrick Harris and Alec Baldwin at dinner on Friday night), television personalities and even a famous musician or two (you may have heard that Beyoncé is performing the National Anthem on Sunday).
The Super Bowl is one of the highest visibility events in the world for marketers. So it’s no surprise to find athletes from all sports making the rounds throughout the week. Andy Roddick, the 2003 U.S. Open tennis champion who retired last year after his final appearance at Flushing Meadows, stopped by to chat on behalf of SAP, the Official Cloud Software Solutions, Business Software and Business Analytics Software Sponsor of the NFL. Roddick has been an SAP Brand Ambassador for seven years.
Unless you have been living under a rock for the past two weeks (or just arrived from another planet), you probably know that this year’s Super Bowl not only matches up the 49ers and the Ravens, but two brothers, John (Ravens) and Jim (49ers). The Harbaughs are also the son of coaching legend Jack Harbaugh, who along with his wife Jackie held his own press conference yesterday. Yes, this is the Super Bowl. Everything and everybody gets a press conference.
In the week leading up to Super Bowl 47, you’re probably going to hear a few things about Ravens star linebacker Ray Lewis or 49ers sophomore stud quarterback Colin Kaepernick or the Harbaugh brothers. Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but did you know Jim and John are the first pair of brothers to coach against each other in the biggest of all the Big Games?
Ohio State senior defensive back Orhian Johnson is no stranger to the spotlight. As a three-year player on defense and special teams for the perennially ranked Buckeyes, the 6’3”, 211-pound Johnson has the tools and raw talent to be a contributor for an NFL team
