The Football Nation/Cold, Hard Football Facts crew undertook the ultimate road trip from Boston to New Orleans for Super Bowl XLVII, partying with great chefs, NFL players, swimsuit models, NFL stars and more, while making media appearances across the country.

Our friends from and Samuel Adams supported the tour, meaning we had wheels, a roof over our head and a mobile office all the way to New Orleans, and plenty of great beer to drink, too.

No drinking and driving, of course! We had a pro handle the driving. Our buddy Mikey Sheehan is a rock 'n roll roadie, most notablly with the Rolling Stones.

The wheels were provided by El Monte RV and Bent's RV.

We were joined along the way by our buddies from Davio's Northern Italian Steakhouse (Boston, Foxboro, Philadelphia, Atlanta and opening soon in New York City). Chef-owner Steve DiFillippo is one of the 32 chefs, one representing each NFL team, selected each year to cook at the Taste of the NFL, a huge fundraiser for hunger organizations held each year the night before the Super Bowl.

We were also joined by Butch Stearns and our video production team from the Pulse Network.

Suffice it to say, it was a rock-star road trip.
