BUT IT COULD BE, LOOKS LIKE IT

WILL BE DAYS BEFORE IT'S LIFTED

BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO DO SOME

TESTING.

LIVE FROM HARVARD, JIM SMITH,

WBZ NEWS.

WE FOUND PLENTY OF FOLKS

GETTING THEIR GROCERY SHOPPING

DONE FOR SUPER BOWL PARTIES

BUT IT WILL NOT BE THE SAME FOR

MANY WITH THE PATRIOTS ON THE

SIDELINES.

WE ARE A LITTLE SPOILED WHEN IT

COMES TO THE PATRIOTS AND THE

BIG-GAME.

NOW LET'S GO LIVE TO BOSTON

WITH MORE ON HOW MUCH PEOPLE

ARE PAYING ATTENTION WITHOUT

THE PATRIOTS PLAYING THIS YEAR.

Reporter: IF THE PATRIOTS

WERE PLAYING IN THE SUPER BOWL

THERE WOULD BE NO DOUBT LONG

LINES AND MOST OF THE BARS IN

SOUTH BOSTON BUT THAT IS NOT

THE CASE.

INSIDE THE BAR THERE IS MORE

CHATTER ABOUT WHERE TOM BRADY

WILL END UP WHEN THE TEAMS

COMPETING TONIGHT.

THE PATRIOTS ARE ABSENT FROM

THE SUPER BOWL BUT THE

EXCITEMENT FROM FANS AT HOME

REMAINS VERY MUCH ALIVE.

THE 49ers AND THE CHIEFS ARE

NOT ON THEIR RADAR, NOT AT THE

BARS IN SOUTH BOSTON PACKED

WITH SPORTS FANS, EVEN WHEN THE

HOME TEAM IS NOT COMPETING.

WE HAVE NEVER NOT BEEN IN

THE SUPER BOWL.

I GUESS WE ARE ROOTING FOR

FOOTBALL.

A BITTERSWEET NIGHT FOR

PATRIOTS FANS.

THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE

FOURTH YEAR.

WE FOUND A COUPLE CHIEFS

FANS IN THE CROWD SAVORING

EVERY MOMENT.

YOU GOT A FIGHT FOR YOUR

RIGHT TO PARTY!

THE STAFF AT THE BROADWAY

BAR TYPICALLY EXPECTS A HUGE

LINE OUT THE DOOR RIGHT AND

EARLY BUT NOT THIS YEAR BUT

THAT DOES NOT MEAN IT'S NOT

BUSTLING.

I THINK PEOPLE ARE LOOKING

TO FILL UP THE DAY.

WE WILL ENJOY THE DAY AS

FOOTBALL FANS.

THERE MIGHT NOT BE LONG

LINES HERE BUT THE BAR MANAGER
