Fox 5 takes a look at the preparations for the Super Bowl XLVIII. This is the road to glory.

The game will be played at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. But many of the related events, celebrations, and parties will be held in New York City as well as in the Garden State.

The first official public event of Super Bowl Week -- Media Day, to feature players of both participating teams -- will be held at the Prudential Center in Newark, on Tuesday, January 28. 

Hotels in New Jersey will host the two teams. The teams will also practice in New Jersey. The NFC team will use the Timex Center while the AFC will use the Atlantic Health Facility at Florham Park.

The NFL Tailgate Party will take place at the Grandstand at the Meadowlands Racetrack leading up to the game on Sunday, February 2.

Meantime, New York City will be home to the Super Bowl Media Center, based at the Sheraton Hotel in Midtown Manhattan.

The annual NFL Honors awards show also will take place in New York City.

Also, a stretch of Midtown will be transformed into "Super Bowl Boulevard" and will be the scene of interactive activities that allow fans to throw a touchdown, catch a pass, or kick a field goal. The Vince Lombardi Trophy display, nightly concerts, football clinics and competitions, player appearances, NFL-themed exhibits, and more will also take place along Super Bowl Boulevard.

New York will also host the Media Party, Friday Night Party, and more.

You can watch the Super Bowl on Fox 5 on February 2, 2014.

    Believe it or not this, some say New York's outdoor basketball courts are a dying entity. Even Rucker Park in Harlem -- where Dr. J and countless others honed their skills -- used to be standing room only all times of the day. Now there's plenty of room to stand on most days.Basketball programs like one at Chelsea Piers are gaining popularity. That means the place to hoop it up for many appears to be indoors.

    With the All-Star break over and the second half of the MLB season well underway, the New York Mets (46-52 as of July 20) and the New York Yankees (50-47 as of July 20) find themselves in the same situations each team is accustomed to at this time of the season. The Yankees are in the middle of the AL East Division title while the Mets are scrapping for every win possible to stay relevant in the NL East. But while the record says one thing, reality says another.

    Derek Jeter soaked in the adulation from fans and players during one more night on baseball's national stage, set the tone for the American League with a pregame speech and delivered two final All-Star hits. He received a 63-second standing ovation when he walked to the plate leading off the bottom of the first, another rousing cheer when he led off the third.
