SAFE TO SAY, SUPER BOWL WAS ONE MAJOR SUCCESS

Abstract (Document Summary)

From Mary J. Blige and Marc Anthony teaming on a beautiful rendition of God Bless America to Paul McCartney singing 'Freedom,' to Mariah Carey offering the most moving National Anthem since Whitney Houston at Super Bowl XXV to the red, white and blue confetti that fell from the roof after the Patriots kicked their game-winning field goal, Super Bowl XXXVI was all about America. The most moving moment was at halftime when the names of some of those killed in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11 were projected on a screen and across the crowds while U2 performed.

[Paul Tagliabue] should be proud. Super Bowl XXXVI will not only be remembered for the Patriots' stunning 20-17 upset of the highly- favored Rams, but also for the extensive security measures put in place in the aftermath of Sept. 11. The nearly 73,000 fans who stuffed the Superdome Sunday night and the millions watching world- wide on television will never fully appreciate the coordination and manpower needed to make the Super Bowl the safe, success it was. But the end result was a monumental event that went off with little inconvenience to the average ticket holder.
