Darius Rucker is headlining the NFL’s On Location Premium Pregame Parties prior to Super Bowl 54 in Miami this weekend.

Rucker is a huge football fan, and he told us, “Ever since I was five years old, I’ve loved football, and I love how physical it is. I love the chess match of the game. I love the speed of the game. I love college football, but for me watching pro football is better because the speed is so much more. For me, there’s two times a year, man — football season and waiting for football season.”

Early in his career with Hootie and the Blowfish, just to be able to meet his favorite team’s quarterback from the Miami Dolphins Dan Marino, he asked him to be in Hootie and the Blowfish’ “Only Want To Be With You” video.
