With Super Bowl XLVII just around the corner New Orleans finally looks like they have a grip on things. They look like they are super bowl ready. The city has been planning this event for over two years and they don’t want to mess anything up. The Super Bowl is the most watched program nation wide, so while all eyes are on New Orleans they feel confident that they can pull it off.

New Orleans, La. - For two years, the city planned for it, worked on it and Mayor Mitch Landrieu says completed a task that other cities would consider overwhelming.

"Our great city, New Orleans, is ready for Mardi Gras and we're ready for Super Bowl XLVII. I guarantee you, nobody's done both of these at the same time ever," says Mayor Landrieu.

Five-thousand members of the media are starting to arrive.

Stories are being told on the international stage about New Orleans as the Super Bowl approaches.

"Let's take this opportunity to show the rest of the world how far New Orleans has come," says Jay Cicero with the New Orleans Sports Foundation.
