The last time a Super Bowl was played in Miami, the Colts were in it. And it rained. I remember because I was seated in the auxiliary (outdoor) press box at what was then called Dolphins Stadium for Super Bowl XLI. I still have and use my courtesy umbrella from the NFL.

This year, both of those elements are back as the Super Bowl returns to South Florida. You know, the Sunshine State. At Sun Life Stadium. Sun. Sun?

Nope.

In fact, for the first time ever the extravaganza that has evolved into Media Day of Super Bowl Week will be moved from the field where it usually takes place to the club level of the stadium where it will be much drier. This will not only help to keep the field in managable shape after today's rains, but protect those involved from the rains forecast for tomorrow.

As for the actual interviews, the Colts will be up first, beginning at 10 a.m. When their hour is up there's a little break before the Saints arrive for their 12-1 slot.

By the way, the early forecast for Sunday evening when two teams that play indoors will face off in the Super Bowl: Partly cloudy with a 10 percent chance of rain.
