It’s all very hush-hush.
All we can say with some degree of certainty is that the Drew University women’s lacrosse team has been invited to participate in the halftime show at the Super Bowl on Feb. 2, 2014.
The school in Madison said on Friday that a confidentiality agreement precluded coach Julia Steier from revealing details, beyond confirming that 20 of the 21 members of her team would be on the Met-Life Stadium turf during the half-time show.
We can only guess that the 21st member revealed some tidbit about the show and has been assigned to perform field research in North Dakota.
The rest of the team, which opens its season on Feb. 27 against Montclair State University, has been to show rehearsal. But they are not supposed to say anything about it, even to their parents, according to the school.
“They know how special it is,” Steier said in a statement released by the school. “Everybody was so excited. It’s a once in a lifetime chance.”
The team applied to participate, and will appear with students from Seton Hall University, among others. The Drew players were not allowed to appear in their lacrosse uniforms, according to the school.
Which begs the question: Will they be wielding their sticks? Perhaps as part of the Met-Life Stadium security team?
The school said the Drew players will be among hundreds of people on the field for the show, which features Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
“We hope we get a chance to see some of them,” said Vincent Masco, associate athletic director at Drew.
