The big game is days away but you can join in on the fun at SBLive at downtown Houston's Discovery Green park. This year's theme: Houston, City of the Future. Here's what you can expect (Trust me I'm a Volunteer).
  1. Volunteers are ready to help you!

    Volunteers came from all around the world. We had to apply, go to interviews, & attend training before getting vetted to volunteer. I had a cool Captain and we found time to take a group selfie.
  2. Volunteer Team Spirit!

    We're proud of our city and want all attendees to have fun. We're committed to making this undertaking a success. During training we learned about our personalities and how to work as a team. (Thanks to Equilibria.com)
