Harry Pemberton didn't need to pay for two tickets to Super Bowl XLV. It's fair to say he talked his way into the big game.
Pemberton, a longtime Orange County resident who has lived in Newport Beach the past 11 years, won the tickets by becoming the champion of the "Smack Talk Your Way to the Super Bowl" contest at http://www.fanschoice.com.
Pemberton left for Dallas on Friday to watch Sunday's matchup of the Pittsburgh Steelers against the Green Bay Packers.
After the game there will be an MVP, but before the game, Pemberton, 47, became the Most Valuable Smack Talker.
Now he's headed to the Super Bowl with his wife, Lauren. What's more he has also been selected to announce the Fan's Choice for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2011 on the NFL Network with Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young. The announcement gig is part of Van Heusen and the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Fan's Choice campaign.
