On Thursday, January 30, AT&T’s DIRECTV NFL SUNDAY TICKET Lounge held its second day of VIP programming in Miami, FL ahead of the Big Game. The high-end hospitality space hosted meet & greets with fan-favorite NFL athletes including Josh Allen (Quarterback, Buffalo Bills) and JuJu Smith-Schuster (Wide Receiver, Pittsburgh Steelers), and a fireside chat with Tua Tagovailoa (Quarterback, Alabama Crimson Tide). Additionally, Ed Reed (Former NFL Player, Baltimore Ravens / University of Miami) and Reggie Wayne (Former NFL Player, Indianapolis Colts / University of Miami), participated in a panel discussion. The former University of Miami teammates (and past roommates) reflected on their early days on the team, their close bond, and went back and forth over who was the better roommate back in the day.
Reed, who was smoking cigars on stage, talked about the importance for players to always be coachable and for younger players to respect their elders
