Friend of the blog Jarrett Payton was in Tampa last week for the Super Bowl festivities, specifically to give out the NFL award that bears his father's name -- the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. Per usual, Jarrett documented the occasion for his highly entertaining Peeze blog.

Jarrett was on the field for the game, and in his latest video blog post of his game-day experience, watch out for cameos by Antrel Rolle (Jarrett's former Miami teammate), Lynn Swann, John Elway, Roger Goodell and Edgerrin James among others:

 
Regarding the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, Payton told Sports Pros(e), "Giving the award is a wonderful feeling. Just knowing my dad is looking down on all this is great to know."

Check out Jarrett's interviews with award-winner Kurt Warner, finalist Brian Dawkins and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell:
