Speaking of which: I'm on the 22nd floor of a rather nice place. (Way nicer than where I stayed for the Final Four here 10 months ago.) I have a view of Minute Maid Park, which is where tomorrow's Opening Night will be staged. I also have a view of a Westin, but not the Westin where Atlanta's team is staying. That's in Memorial City, which is west of downtown.
The weather's nice. Lots of people are walking around. The NFL Experience is ongoing. (I saw people in Broncos and Steelers and Texans regalia, but no Falcons stuff yet.) Traffic's not great. (Houston traffic is a bit better than ours, but only a bit.) I'm here and I'm unpacked, and it's only 25 hours until the first actual event -- and exactly one week until they play the game.
