BRIAN GILBERT: You know, all my co-workers who are going have been texting me and everything. Everybody is just so excited about this. We're just thrilled. I mean, I think it was a great move. Very honored that the city of Tampa, the NFL got together and did this. I think it would have been great if it was done in any Super Bowl in any city. But the fact that's done here is just awesome. And we get to experience it.

This is actually a bucket list for me-- to go to a Super Bowl. Probably never thought it would happen to me. It's surreal, it really is. I'm really excited about it. And it's going to be a different way of watching the game. To watch a Super Bowl in person, with two teams where I like a team better than the other. And the outcome is going to be whoever wins, whoever wins. But to be there with my team, sitting in the stands watching this. It's just going to be amazing. I'm probably not going have a voice the next day.
