As the Patriots prepare to take on the Seahawks this Sunday in Super Bowl XLIX, fans are gathering in Arizona for all of the pre-game festivities.
Inside the NFL Experience, a three story, interactive extravaganza inside the Convention Center, fans got to play video games, exercise games - and even let in lonely Jets fans. (Although necn couldn't find any.)
What we did find was the first hearty New Englander to escape before the snow and make it to Arizona.
"I caught the last flight out at 4 p.m. Monday right before the blizzard came in. So, fortunate enough to make it out here in the nick of time," Matthew Limoli of Derry, New Hampshire, said.
