Sports is more than just games, it is how America fuels her passions for something other than mundane life, providing a necessary escape. As we begin to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, sports becomes necessary for people to rediscover a normal life in the “new normal”. Jim Steeg was part of the NFL for 35 years, 26 years doing special events and a driving force in the creation of what is now the Super Bowl. Jim joins Ed Berliner for a special set of stories and memories about the times pro football helped America back from the Gulf War and the aftermath of 9/11. It all ties in with our discussion on IF the NFL can actually play the 2020 season, and the myriad of thing so many people haven’t even considered in how to get back on the field. It’s all on this special edition of “The Man in the Arena”.
The man who built the Super Bowl knows the NFL’s importance in reopening America from COVID-19.
