Over 100 million people are likely tune in to watch the Super Bowl, but before the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers can meet on the field, there is a week of Super Bowl related activities to get through. Between press conferences, charity dinners and plenty of parties, Super Bowl week in New Orleans should be anything but dull.
The 49ers are scheduled to arrive in New Orleans Sunday night with the Ravens due in Monday afternoon, but the week of events won't kick off until Tuesday. On Tuesday, both teams will gather for media day where they will be surrounded by thousands of media members and asked nearly every question imaginable.
There will be several gatherings during the week, including the Pro Football Hall of Fame luncheon on Friday. If you are a fan of press conferences, you're in luck as Jim and John Harbaugh will hold a joint press conference on Friday. A few more highlights of Super Bowl week can be found below.
