BCS National Championship

I promise this is the last New Orleans post!

We received a police escort to the Superdome on Monday afternoon....there were about 7 or 8 buses of Allstate folks and about 20 police officers stopping all traffic in New Orleans for us to get to the game.  It was insane!  People were videoing our buses going by and taking pictures.

All the media as we pulled up to the dome.  Of course we had prime parking.

Walking into the Pre Game Party that Allstate put on for us.

They had a bunch of stationed food and open bar.  The CEO spoke and Kevin even got his picture with him afterwards.  Nice guy!

We entered the game through this lil entrance from the tailgate room and our seats were crazy.  Club level, 3rd row.  Unreal.  This was seriously the experience of a lifetime.  Maybe not the best game to watch but the treatment we received and the energy in the building was unbelievable. 

Kevin and I.  We had to wear those beads that showed our tickets at all time.  I didn't put mine on til the last minute when they forced me to...it was so ugly and did not match my outfit! ;)  I'm sorta kidding.

When the teams were announced and came out, they shot off mini fire works.  The Mercedes symbol actually hangs down from the roof.

Game time!

Halftime LSU band!

It was quite the production and Allstate had lots of marketing going on in this place!

We had a wonderful time and are so thankful for the experience.  The Superdome was SO loud it was almost deafening.  What an event to remember!
Then we cruised back to The Roosevelt Waldorf Astoria which was also a phenomenol hotel. 

We flew back Tuesday afternoon.  It was a fabulous trip and once in a lifetime.  Thank you to Kevin for working hard to win it!

Hahaha!! I love that you say you're kind of kidding when not putting on the beads because they don't match your outfit. Who are you trying to fool? Surely not me BECAUSE I totally know you aren't kidding -- who wants to clash when they planned a cute outfit in the first place!! Haha!!! :) Looks like you had an amazing time!
