PLAYERS: Roger Goodell
TEAMS: Dallas Cowboys
The Super Bowl has attracted so many stars to the city that even The Fray admits to being a little starstruck. The band performed at the NFL's official tailgate party at Lucas Oil Stadium ahead of the Super Bowl on Sunday. In the days before the big game, lead singer Isaac Slade said they were in a restaurant with ''Glee's'' Matthew Morrison, then another VIP walked by - NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Later, they saw Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Slade said, ''It's been surreal, it's kind of an `SNL (Saturday Night Live)' skit.'' The band also enjoyed plenty of star-studded events leading up to the big game - for guitarist Joe King, maybe a little too much. King said: ''I feel like I'm a sponge and I've had enough.''
