On Super Bowl Sunday Barrow will head to the truck a good 61/2 hours before kickoff and start chugging iced tea. He estimates that he'll consume gallons of it during the game, but having dropped nearly 100 pounds over the last 18 months, he will not overindulge on the doughnuts and pizza that typically fill production trailers.
"I have to really watch myself because I can go crazy," acknowledged Barrow.
For all the focus Barrow and his crew will put on getting the game just right, he knows there's one thing even more important to his bosses at CBS than nailing the winning touchdown.
"You don't ever want to ever miss a commercial, especially in a game like the Super Bowl," he said. "That's our job."
