It’s an 8:30 am crew call. The Pacer’s parking garage normally charges us $4 for parking. But it’s Superbowl Day and the garage is now charging $99. Which is cheap, compared to the parking lot down the street which is charging $200.
We all got there early to ensure that we could find parking space. I parked in the ESG Security parking lot at 11th and Capital and I took their shuttle in. Other crew members found free parking on the street. But we all got there so early that we beat the people with the keys to the control rooms. So we all ended up sitting on the floor, waiting.
There are only 3 schedule shows to shoot, plus one extra show that was cancelled from Friday’s overcrowding. All of them were on the Pepsi Stage. Easy shoots. A easy day.
Once the shows were done we packed in the cameras and tripods. Early in the morning we pulled all our cable from the Verizon stage. But in the end, the problem proved to be the Pepsi Stage. There were so many people out trying to enjoy the last day of Superbowl events, it would be dangerous trying to pull cable with a lot of people walking over them.
So we had to wait for the Superbowl Host Committee to make a decision. And we waited. And waited. And finally they asked for a volunteer to stay and help pull cable later in the day.
Hershel volunteered, or was he Volunteered! Anyhow, I was out of there by 4p.
