Mayor Bill de Blasio killed it today on Super Bowl Boulevard. A portion of Broadway, as its known most of the time, has been converted into “Super Bowl Boulevard” with a toboggan slide, a goal post set up for kicking field goals, a Lombardi trophy exhibition tent and more. Mayor de Blasio visited for several fun-filled hours today, beginning at the toboggan slide and ending at an onstage ceremony 3 1/2 hours later.
To start off, here’s a clip of Mayor de Blasio meeting a well-known Times Square denizen, the Naked Cowboy.
Update – Victory!:
The mayor’s visit to Super Bowl Boulevard began at the toboggan slide. By his third run, only his wife and son remained with him as Senator Schumer, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and others had dropped out. This final slide was a dogged father/son race featuring a well-timed shove at the start and a come-from-behind victory. Perhaps the wind drag on one competitor’s hair was a factor.
Update #2 – Kicking Away:
The mayor and his family tried kicking some field goals. In the middle of Broadway.
