Programming highlights for Super Bowl Sunday involving ESPN shows and commentators (all times ET):
- NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (via phone at 7:40 a.m.) will be interviewed by Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic on a special edition of Mike & Mike in the Morning on ESPN Radio (simulcast on ESPN);
- ESPN NFL analyst and Super Bowl XXIX MVP Steve Young will appear on ABC’s Good Morning America Weekend (airs in most markets at 8 a.m.). Young was interviewed Saturday by correspondent Marysol Castro for an NFL story about logos and mascots;

Rick Reilly played fantasy football with then-Senator Obama? What’s up with that? That’s not right.
I don’t expect anything else from the networks today, but if I do get something, you can expect that it will get posted here.
